Range Rover Evoque Bicycle by Karbona

While the whole concept is something that we’ve come to see in the past, we still raised a curious eyebrow on what appears to be a growing trend among automakers these days.

Not content with producing four-wheeled vehicles, some of the most esteemed automakers in the world have gone the route of building two-wheeled modes of transportation, i.e. bicycles.

The latest to dive in to the bicycle fixation is Land Rover , which is introducing the road bicycle extension for the Range Rover Evoque . Built in cooperation with Karbona and designed by the Land Rover design team headed by director, Gerry MCGovern, the Evoque bicycle uses Formula One-derived technology, featuring a carbon fiber frame with an integrated seat tube, alloy handlebars, black chrome trim, a leather saddle, and a 20-gear Shimano Ultegra system. The Evoque bicycle is expected to be a light, nimble, and clean-looking bicycle that doesn’t compromise its performance capabilities.

Having said that, those interested in the bicycle might as well go ahead and place an order for the whole package, SUV included. Having one without the other just doesn’t seem right, at least as far as we’re concerned.

haha. Sorry guys! But the bike looks attractive more than the car itself! However,
up to now I’m still puzzled on why does this car section keep on posting about bicycles!

I really can’t imagine myself buying a Range rover just to get the bike. Maybe if it’s the other way around (buying a bike to get the Rover), then I would probably go for it smiley

Well, I am not really that much of a bike enthusiast, but this one actually looks great. Though I doubt that it would be ideal for city travel.

I don’t know what they are selling with this one, is it the SUV or the bike? But then again, the bike really look cool, so it might be a good purchase.

Hmm, the Snimano gears alone would actually cost more than a complete entry level bike. Add to that the price of the carbon fiber frame and you have got yourself a pretty expensive set of two wheels.

Well if that’s the case, then they should be selling this as a bundle with the car. This way, the bike can be used as an emergency equipment.

Yeah, I would agree with you that this bike setup can be easily replicated by using aftermarket parts. But those aren’t going to be exactly cheap either.

I think the main purpose of the bike is that, in case of emergency, when you get a flat tire, and you don’t have a reserve wheels, better used the bike and seek for help!
Maybe it would be much better if the bike would be free if you are going to the buy the SUV. Isn’t it great?

The bike actually look good, though not outstanding. You can actually build this one out of aftermarket parts, and of course, at a much cheaper price.
