Electric Sports Motorcycle

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.

    Yep. After riding the Vectrix, I love the idea of an electrically, or fuel-cell powered bike. I don’t know what other people think on this, it’s hard to imagine a market in the future where we don’t have petrol engines, but it’s coming. Bike magazine this month wrote a really good piece on how 2005 was the height of sports-bike engine development and since then all engineering work has gone into meeting the tightening emissions laws.

    For me, and I guess most bikers, the weirdest concept is the different noise, or near total loss of noise. A sports-bike engine on full-chat is music to my ears, yet the whirring-up of an electric motor is also interesting. I’m imagining the day when an electric bike runs along side the R1′s and GSX-R’s in WSB. Like the 500 two-strokes and 1000cc four-strokes did in MotoGP in 2002/3.

    Yes, the design is kinda creative, as someone mentioned earlier, but i don’t like it very much.

    I got nothing against an electric engine…

    ..but i need NOISE. Apart from the fact that drivers don’t exactly look out for riders (ESPECIALLY in my country) loud pipes have actually been a saving grace.

    Every car company is coming out with hybrid. I think it’s time for the motorcycle company to come out with there own version of hybrid or electric ride.
