Zero Motorcycles has once again raised the bar for all-electric bikes.
The all-new 2020 Zero SR/F is a naked streetfighter boasting 110 BHP and 140 ft/lbs of torque. Tipping the scales just under 500 pounds the SR/F offers a range of 161 miles in standard trim. Zero calls it the first fully “smart” motorcycle.
BMW Motorrad held their annual Techday 2018 at their proving grounds in Miramas, France last month. The engineers from Munich wowed the crowd with a number of high-tech goodies. But the most wow was generated by an unmanned motorcycle circling the test track.
This tiny Honda e-bike from Shanghai Customs was the hit of the office.
The eCUB is a clean and minimalist version of the classic Honda with a 2000 watt hub motor connected to a 1.2kW lithium-ion battery pack. The setup offers a range of around 30 miles and top speed of 50 mph. Despite outward appearances the eCUB has all the necessary lighting for street use in most markets.
