Trying to be as objective as possible, it would be an improvement over 99% of the public sculpture I've seen.

Wow, even I'm not crazy about car companies coming up with bikes, but this is one of my all time favorite TT bikes!

More like bike companies making cars, then stopping bikes and making bikes again. Eddy Mercx rode a Peugeot!

Have a look at the skewers. Some details there we haven't seen on TT bikes before.

True. Here it is : http://www.cycles.peugeot.com/history/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The Onyx TT bike is part of a trilogie presented at the latest Paris Car Show.
The Onyx scooter and the Onyx car complete it.

Do not know if the controls of the TT bike have full functions which are Peugeot designed,too.
Fully integrated brakes and cables complete the show.
I would guess that the copper parts are plated onto the carbon fiber .
It is propably this combination of CF and copper what makes the Onyx series so unique .

For enthusiasts who were not able to see the bike in real .
I have been in their show room on the Champs-Elysees a while ago where they present also their concept and racing cars.
I do believe that the Onyx TT bike will find its way to this show room in the close future.
Any WW members from Paris may confirm this.

I am guessing it will never come out as it appears to have an ee crank on it.

The photos of the Onyx car,scooter and bike on the Peugeot website should have been taken in a studio.

Not live but there are videos on youtube from the Paris Motor Show showing them all "on stage".
