Electric motorcycles aren’t a futuristic idea that someday take off. A revolution is upon us right now and it to be exciting.

There are lots of out there that are taking on the of making electric bikes for everyday use. And while think some of the bigger would be leading the charge for power, it’s really the companies that are actually these bikes to the market.

In doing a little bit of research I found two companies that apart from the rest what they have to a consumer. Zero Motorcycles out of Cruz, California, and Brammo Ashland, Oregon, are two manufactures really see the potential in the growth of a alternative to the combustion engine. offer a selection of bikes suit different styles of

The nice thing about companies is that their are not only environmentally friendly but bank account friendly. You associate cutting-edge technology a cutting-edge prices, but these range from $7,995 to — and that’s before government tax

Zero Motorcycles offers two with variations of each The company’s off-road model an “X”(trail riding) or “MX”(track version that puts out 50 of torque with 23 horsepower. The for these bikes is about 40 and they can be fully recharged in than two hours using a 110V or 220V outlet.

This bike has a top speed of 100 mph and 59 ft-lbs. of torque bad considering a n average 1200 has 79 ft-lbs.). Brammo’s Empulse entered the Time Trial Grand Prix (TTXGP) in — an electric-only grand prix — it finished third.

In my opinion, the motorcycle has a strong base of and practicality to start the genera off on the path. Just like the combustion engine motorcycles, electric rides are starting off a short range of travel, but on the side of that technologic are occurring at a much faster in this era. Take for an electric 500 hp drag bike. can do 0-60 in 0.97 seconds.

That’s astonishing.

The more I into this subject, the excited I become. In the not-so-distance I think we’ll be seeing motorcycles making their way more and more garages. wonderful machines offer the of a green future while competitive in the performance arena.
