What a load of tosh, electric bikes are an exciting new prospect. You have to forget the internal combustion engine and look at it with fresh eyes. This technology is less than a decade old unlike the traditional motorcycle which has been in development since the early 1900's. It took 70 years to go over 100mph on petrol engines. These bikes have taken 4. Granted only the powerplant is different and the modern suspensions etc have helped but there is no need to be so damned pesimstic about what is undeniably the future of personal transportation. We should be excited by the fact that electric bikes are going to be developed in a racing arena because atm electric cars look like slow dogs. As for range, it will come around, so will charging times, but even now these bikes are far more sustainably viable than petrol powered bikes.
