Recent stories and news from the world of the electric motorcycle … and various other electric contraptions.

Are electric motorcycles the future. To some extent that seems almost inevitable. But as it stands now, it is almost impossible for an electric motorcycle to serve the need of every single rider. It isn’t a problem of the motor as the electric motor in itself is an old piece of technology – although ever improving. It is the battery capacity that is the challenge for electric motorcycles. But that too is changing with new technology and many manufacturers are working hard on packing more and more capacity into far more energy dense batteries. We will talk about that and other electric developments in these features and new items.
