EV's = the future.

I'm all for it. 100% torque from the time you twist the throttle, count me in.

When it comes to performance, the electric motor wins.

I actually sort of like it. At least it looks like a motorcycle.
I'm willing to sign up as a test rider.
Probably good for around 100 miles on a charge, but should be an interesting 100 miles :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I wonder why they would use a chain drive on an electric bike?

Are you thinking hub motors, Pete? The trouble with hub motors is they are expensive for one, then you have that rather large mass at the wrong end of the forks/shocks.

it'll be interesting to see what (if anything) actually makes it to production / delivery. the right specs / cost and i'd demo with the intent to buy in a heartbeat.

100 miles won't make 3 laps around the Ilse of Man, when it comes into the pits do they change the battery?

No, but it could easily complete a superbike race at Laguna Seca.

And... they DO race electric bikes at the Isle of Man.
