Puzzling Choice Between Electric Car and Motorcycle

The choice with electric vehicles grows every months. So when does an electric motorcycle start to make sense?

I’m wondering if everyone is watching the Super Bowl today or are there people thinking about electric vehicles, EV? For those of you, this one’s for you. There’s no denying that both electric cars and motorcycles have a lot to offer each their own way but as the technology matures, both increasingly become more appealing for different reasons. While space might still be an issue for daily drivers, range is more than sufficiently met with most electric vehicles, EV. Lithium batteries are becoming more efficient in both cases making the ultimate choice between one or the other more difficult.

The Case For Electric Cars. The case for electric cars is pretty simple, space for at least two, if not four or more people. Range is more than sufficient today considering 80% of our daily commute can be handled with any EV on the market today. Price is the sticky point but if the 2013 trends are anything to judge by, carmakers are working very hard to bring down the prices on electric cars. Case in point, CODA offered plenty of weekend deals last year that got all their 2012 models out the door.

Now that Pic makes sense...COL! The "Brammo' cycles are built near me here in Southern Oregon, they are a fine machine and have pushed the development of EV cycles, even racing them at the Isle of Mann. Some 'Best Buys', offer EV motor cycles, bikes, and scooters, and sometimes you can test ride them. An EV cycle would make sense for about 85% of my trips, especially those that I make on my bike, and, though I would lose the health benefits of a peddle bike, it could be a lot safer, given the A--holes who like to crowd you and honk at your for riding a bike, not too mention, just not seeing you.

Yes, Brammo was one of the first ones out there and I was very impressed at the unveiling of its Impulse at the LA event. I had an interesting talk with the fellow who represented the Italian company that manufacturers the gear box for it. Living in a crowded California city, I agree that most cars are oblivious to motorcycles and the only place where you can more or less safely drive one is inside a city, avoiding fast avenues. It's too bad.
