People who are really wanting to go all electric in terms of their personal transportation haven’t had a lot of options. Sure, you could get a Vectrix electric scooter, or if you had a boatload of cash you could buy the Wrightspeed X1 Supercar.
But of course, there is one other option. You could always build your own electric motorcycle! That’s exactly what these people have done! And you can even find the specs and parts on some of the associated web sites. Of course, even if you don’t build one, its totally cool to take a look at what these other folks are doing. Pretty soon I’m hoping we can pick up full electrics from Honda, Yamaha, and other manufacturers.
First of all, a Ninja 750 motorcycle gets new life as an electric bike:
Here is a Yamaha R1 with 28 lithium batteries. It’ll go about 75 miles with a top speed of 100 MPH.
Here is a video of an electric motorcycle created by Todd Kollin from ElectricMotorsport.com.
