It looks like the 2014 prototype electric motorcycle is finally making it to production in 2019. Pricing and specs are still a mystery with the Harley-Davidson LiveWire. There is no gasoline used as this is an all-electric powertrain with a magnetic electric motor mounted low in the frame. I am not sure this will appeal to Harley-Davidson riders as they typically like to be the loudest and most annoying guys in...

This battery pack with wheels was built at a Swiss University and is dubbed the Ethec Electric Motorcycle. The looks, only a mother could love, are due to the large 1260-cell lithium ion battery pack which can be charged in just one hour. The Ethec Electric Motorcycle has a range of 250-miles and has a thermoelectrical cooling system for long battery life. The motorcycles frame is a a lightweight tubular system with a trapezoidal fork for increased stability. They also added a large 7-inch lcd dash to make Elon proud. ...

The Energica Ego is a good looking electric motorcycle, mainly because it doesn’t look like an electric motorcycle. “The green heart of the electric motorcycle is a synchronous oil-cooled motor with permanent magnets. It has 100kW (136 hp c.ca) of instantaneous power reaching from 4900 rpm to 10500 rpm and a torque of 195 Nm ranging from 0 rpm to 4700 rpm.” The Energica Ego has some decent specs to back up the...

When tearing up the city on two wheels I tend to reach for the supermoto inspired bikes. They are nimble, lightweight, and fun to ride in the tighter areas. The folks at BRD Motorcycles have one cool little fun machine dubbed the RedShift SM ($15,495). Outside of the price tag and the 50-mile range I think this is one cool bike. The RedShift SM is a race sumo without the oil changes. It is designed for everything a city can throw at a bike. Because of its off-road roots,...

What a shocker to the typical gas guzzling, fume belching bikes that Harley Davidson is known for.  This tradition busting Harley Davidson is an all electric motorcycle called the LiveWire.  Read on for details of the Harley LiveWire. ...

Apparently police departments are flush with cash despite posturing about budget cuts and layoffs.  Oh the hypocrisy.  Lucky for them the general public is quick to forget yesterdays news. Now on to the exciting and obvious bits.  Zero Motorcycles is pushing their latest bike the Zero S to the local, Northern California, police departments.  This...

Looks like another electric motorcycle just hit the streets.  The KTM Freeride E is going to be putting some heat on the competition.  Watch out Zero Motorcycles, Brammo, and Mission One.  They are all pretty neat, but, IMHO, they will all fail unless they get the range above 200 miles per charge. ...

  We have seen plenty of electric motorcycles hitting the market, and we like it.  The latest one to come across our desks is the Orphiro Electric Motorcycle.  The good part, this crazy looking bike is expected to launch in September.  Fingers crossed that it...

Finally an electric motorcycle that looks mean and tough.  I have nothing against Zero Motorcycles or Brammo but their designs leave a lot...

The Brammo Enertia was one of the first electric motorcycles on the market (retailed around $11,995) and had a sad 40 mile range.  Today Brammo announced the Enertia Plus that will get 80 miles per charge and has a new price tag of $8,995.  Expect to see the Brammo Enertia Plus sometime in 2011.  Current...
