Mini Cooper into Fitness

So not only is Mini Coopers fuel efficient they are now crossing over into bikes. It seems this is the right of passage for most successful car companies to make a bike.

According to the official blurb, both bikes will “exhibit the modern aggressive styling of a track bike, and combine confident, sharp handling with comfort and smoothness.” The T100 Monza is supplied in dark blue with flat bars and the T100 Sebring is finished in silver, and has bullhorn bars. The bikes retail from £595 and are available from January 2010.

In addition to the T100 Monza and T100 Sebring, the Cooper range will include the T200 Championship 50 and the T200 Reims 5 Speed. Inspired by the lightweight racing bikes of the 1960's, the T200 series combines classic styling with modern components and technology.

The T200 Championship 50 is a special edition single speed, finished in classic Cooper racing green to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Cooper Car Company Formula 1 World Championship victory in 1959. The stunning T200 Reims, finished in cream, combines style with the practicality of 5 gears. The T200 bikes, which will be available in March 2010 will also make an appearance at the Cycle Show.
