Think about this if Bridgestone had kept going and came out with a electric motorcycle would buy one!
Thank you.
Steve.

I would like to try a electric motorcycle just to see the difference.
Thanks.

I've never tried an electric vehicle, but an electric bike for cross country or hare scrambles seems like it would make sense because of the torque curve characteristics.

I have ridden in an electric vehicle a few times now.
The performance is amazing, but I kinda prefer the noise to match.
Until the only option of getting somewhere is to walk, I don't plan to buy one.

I saw this on an automotive tech show a few weeks ago.
It won't convince me to buy an EV, but I guess it could mitigate my first complaint.

I think electric vehicles will someday replace ICE power, but it will take another couple of decades. Gas engine technology took what, 50 or so years before it was viable. But wait, luckily we have Big Brother, er, the government, coming to the rescue with tax money from you and I, creating mandates, subsidies, and propaganda to ram this down our throats, whether the electric infrastructure can physically handle the load or not. I won't be buying into the electric vehicle scam anytime soon.
