" Hi,
I have been a biker for (too many) years and an Electronic Engineer for almost as long and I live in the UK.
I have been considering building a EV motorbike for the last couple of years, and think it about time I started.
Cheers

Wow! That sounds like a lot to me. Why would anyone need any more power than that? I think I could run my entire home, which does have a lot of gas appliances, on 2kW, maybe less. "

When you do go solar, that would be a good video project as well.

We can also run our shop for about 2-3 days of full operation of a 13.4 or 4-5 days on a 21.5 Hopefully we will have solar done up in 2021 so we can just have perpetual power while the bike is connected.
Thanks for the update. That amount of power and your power cord sounds very useful when PG&E does one of their PSPS attacks, most of which shouldn't last more than a couple of days. (We hope.)

That pizza cooker sure looks strange. I have a friend who is really big on cooking pizzas. He uses an electric oven that operates at 950 degrees F and cooks his homemade pizzas on a pizza stone. He tells me that he would never use that pizza appliance to fry a pie. "

I had never seen a pizza cooker like that before.

Or mayyyybe.... mayyybe.... when the power goes out, I will plug it into my house to power it.



This is probably one of the least thought out responses I have had, I really am grateful for it, because I was unaware this thought process was one I had to consider.

Perhaps what we are selling isn't the cooker... but the device that lets you plug the cooker, or any other device into your motorbike. Like in a natural disaster running your house, or an emergency shelter.

And of course, people have been cooking meals on top of their car engines ever since the Model T was popular with travelers.

" Don't care if California shuts down the electricity from the forest fires! We have an EV Siphon!! Just sucking those electrons out for whatever we want!

In this video, Morgan decides to make us a picnic, combining 2 of the best things to come out of Italy, pizza and motorcycles. We cook the pizza using our new invention, the EV Siphon. It pulls electricity out of your electric vehicle to use however you want! We are actively seeking funding and hope to make this product available to everyone.

Also... if we are able to get funded, Energica has committed to integrating with our tech to become the worlds first production electric motorcycle to allow power out / v2g/h/x power anything, including your whole house/building!
