There’s a company near San Francisco and Silicon Valley building electric motorcycles. A very small factory growing at a very fast pace as Electric is catching on. This motorcycle will be as quiet as the community it’s made in. The company’s goal is to build electric motorcycles that go fast. That is more than unique in the Two wheeled world. It isn’t just about building electric, it’s about producing a product that can perform the same as gas powered bikes, hitting jumps full speed and having the same traction on muddy tracks.
They are busy testing out the bikes as we speak. Not just on their own tracks, but in real races with sponsored Riders. It’s been an awesome result so far and the best is yet to come. The electric bike does not have a transmission like a normal motorcycle, which gives it instant access to torque, which means fast turns and less stress on beat up tracks. Without the worry of shifting gears, this is going to allow our riders more focus on acceleration and concentration on rough conditions.
Like the electric car, Bikes are going to cost quite a bit more than the normal gas powered ones. The range right now is around $15,000, but you won’t have the gas and oil costs, transmission maintenance and best of all the exhaust. There are a couple other competitors in this field which is good for the market. Competition is always good keeping some from monopolizing the market. Some company’s are going to have an advantage with lighter parts, more battery capacity and several other things. However as the idea progresses and time goes by they will get better and better.
Northern California is mostly known for app and service startups, but also is the home to some electric vehicle manufacturers like Tesla. Which have manufacturing plants there. There’s also talk Apple may be coming into the game. The Bay area also known as Silicon Valley is a breeding ground and will continue to be the home of many Large Company’s.
This Bike compared to traditional bikes will have a quite purr compared to the loud rumblings of normal motocross bikes. This may open up a whole new venue of where races can be held as the sound will no longer be an issue. Speaking of noise they will now be able to ride trails without frightening all the wild life, humans walking, horses and any other normal being startled by loud screaming engines. This really is a game changer for not just motocross but all our gas powered machines. It’s good for the environment and bad for the oil company’s. Fortunately we’re in the year 2016 and politics don’t play a part like they used too. Electric is here to stay folks.
