Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. Motorcycles and Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs) are not exempt. Electric motors have many advantages. They are exceptionally economical to operate, have small carbon footprints and offer instantaneous power and torque. Benefits don’t stop there. Firstly, you get to ride past all gas stations. Secondly, you can alter the power delivery with the push of a button. Finally, they are so smooth and quiet you might forget they are running.
Both smaller and large manufacturers are producing electric bike. Motorcycle super-celebs Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman have recently been spotted in South America on e-powered Harley-Davidsons as they make their way north in the filming of “Long Way Up”.
Expect to see a lot more electric Powered-Two-Wheelers in the near future. Expect E-powered sportbikes, cruisers, tourers, scooters, dirt bikes and more.
