Will Electric Motorcycles Start Getting Traction?

I am far from a motorcycle guy, however I have been enamored lately by the technology and relative low cost of electric motorcycles. I am not talking about the Harley Davidson offering or the higher priced Zero bikes but the smaller independent manufacturers – an offering that brings to mind the same type of ethos as micro-breweries. Bikes released in smaller batches that lean towards a past era of motorcycle aesthetic with a ‘hipster’ appeal that I am drawn to.

These are city bikes with smaller battery ranges and fairly low top speeds. I think we will see a flood of these in the US / Canadian marketplace in the next 12 months. Great retro styling, restyled by some very talented people.

All a bit mysterious. An Italian custom bike manufacturer who are building an electric bike. The video is part of its wonderful mystery.

Super Soco TC Max

Not as retro-stylish as the others but the TC Max may be the price point that appeals to a myriad of buyers. The TC line has a die hard fan base that will grow even further if pushed into the Canadian marketplace. Lots of potential for this one.
