    Classic Italian brand Bultaco has been reborn (again), this time they are manufacturing electric assist mountain bikes and some interesting looking road bikes.

    Both bikes have the same specs except the Rapitan’s styling allows for helmet storage in what is usually the fuel tank area, simmiliar to the BMW F650cs, and the Rapitan sport has an interesting front suspension setup.
