Media professionals test the Turbo bikes at the North American release.

Specialized Bicycles, based in Morgan Hill, California, has developed a new kind of E-bike that can reach speeds of 27.9 mph, according to KTVU.com [2].

Specialized dealers in the United States have begun selling the Turbo, the electric assisted bicycle. The bike has been available in Europe for nearly a year.

The Turbo–powered by a 250-watt rear hub electric motor and 36-volt battery pack that recharges in about 2.5 hours–features a frame integrated with LED head and tail lights, regenerative breaking, a backlit display that monitors speed, distance, time and charge and assistance level.

The bike costs about $6,000.
