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. "

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!

" DC motors seem to transfer the energy more quickly. That is why a lot of drag racers have been using them at the expense of the brushes, added weight and lower RPMs. I still have a DC motor in my street ridden Cafe racer.
The AC motor seems to need a bit more rotation before it gets rolling, but after that is is a torque monster up to 8000 RPM and the only issues (to me anyway) is a bit more cost and getting all the programming right in the controller.

The bike is running well with the Sevcon/AC motor, but that will be ungraded soon ( bigger motor and controller).

Like anything in the world of EVs, it depends on the application on what you want / need. "
