I don´t no if the environment is the key behind more and more electric-powered bikes coming out these days but I am glad that something is done to help our planet. There are mostly smaller companies who have come out with these electric-powered bikes and I guess it´s because the large manufacturers don´t belive that these bikes will bring them money. That said, I am really exited to hear that one of the larger companies, KTM, are developing an electric bike that will compete with 125/250cc two-stoke motocross machines. Accoriding to KTM, it´s expected to show up on the market next year.
The “Mission One” bike is looking amazing. With high-quality chassis components from Brembo and Ohlins, futuristic styling combined with in-house battery and motor technology, this Electric Sports Motorcycle is attempting to break into the Sports Bike market.
With benefits such as a top speed of 150mph (241 km/h), a single gear, zero noise and with carbon emissions and radical styling, this motorcycle would surely get on the top of the list for most of us bike freaks.
