Hybrid and electric cars have gained in popularity over the last few years. Whether the environmental manufacturing costs outweigh usage benefits is not an argument I feel I know enough about but petrol cars will one day be a thing of the past.
The big problem with electrical vehicles is weight and current battery technology.
Well now bikers now have the option of an electric motorcycle with the new range of Zero Motorcycles.
The big problem I have with Electric Vehicles is how quiet they are. Current petrol motorcycles if fitted with legal exhausts are very quiet and more then once a pedestrian has stepped out in front of me, having not looked and not heard me. With electric vehicles getting more common its going to be a growing problem.
