Agility Saietta - Click above to watch the video after the break

Designed in London and christened with the phonetic spelling of "thunderbolt" in an Italian Apennine dialect, the Agility Saietta has just been revealed at the Carole Nash/MCN London Motorcycle Show. This newest debutante on the electric motorcycle scene doesn't hold back on the bold.

Sporting a narrow fairing evocative of a highly-stylized ram's head (or possibly some sort of evil alien insect, we're not sure) that swoops back to form a battery-encapsulating dome that fills the entire area directly ahead of the rider, the Saietta may be one man's vision of rolling art. What sort of vision it provides for another man is anyone's guess.

When the bike hits the streets, possibly as soon as April, it will be available in two packages: R and S. The S is the lesser of the beasts with 50 miles of range, a 0-to-60 time in the 5-second neighborhood and a price tag of £9,975 ($16,090 U.S. at today's rates). The big brother is packed to go 100 miles, is a second quicker to 60 miles per hour and ships for £13,975 ($22,540).

As if we didn't have enough to ponder whilst we wait for more specifics about the powertrain and performance, we can't help but wonder what else might be lurking in the Agility Global Ltd. labs. The press release threatens that the "Saietta is the first of two new vehicle types that will revolutionise private transportation in cities." Consider yourselves forewarned. Video of teaser renders after the break.
