  1. Riding a 2020 Zero SR/S through Europe

    This is an entertaining account about two fellows who ride their 2020 Zero SR/F models through Europe, one of which is loaded down with SHAD hard luggage: ...

    That is what I was thinking of, but I haven't heard a peep about the Challenge in the TV or written press for some years.

    You may recall that contest that used to be held in Australia during the summer when auto companies and universities designed very odd-looking cars covered with solar cells to see which one could...

    Good luck with that. Do the people who think up stuff like that have any idea how long it takes to recharge a motorcycle-size battery using solar cells of a size that are typically installed on a...

    Here is an article that was in my newspaper yesterday that describes Tesla's new larger battery cell, which I thought most people here would find interesting if they already didn't know about it.

    It should. The partnership has a 10-year expiration date and I am sure everyone at Zero knows the Polaris/Brammo story and doesn't want to see that repeated. No doubt they will keep their company at...

    Zero partners with Polaris

    It looks like Zero will be providing the power trains and battery packs for Polaris off-road products, while Polaris provides the chassis design, manufacturing, marketing, retail dealers and...

    My 30-year old refrigerator uses 150 watts when it is running. No doubt my dishwasher uses more than that, but I only operate that once every couple of weeks. I do 2 loads of laundry a week and my...

    Welcome and good luck turning your vision into reality. I am sure you will learn a lot along the way. :)

    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.

    You missed my point. I was trying to compare warming up a meal by using heat from a motorcycle exhaust with using a battery-powered electric appliance. I thought you had developed the pizza cooker...

    Very creative, but nothing new here. I used to warm up MRE's when I would go to a rally by placing them on top of the catalytic converter bulge of my BMW motorcycle, which I think is a better use of...

    I had the same observation regarding his announcement yesterday. But then I am not surprised. When was the last time that electric motorcycles were ever mentioned by a government official or...
  17. Anyone want to buy an electric scooter company?

    And it looks like another one is about to bite the dust. (Just check out the manufacturer brand names of the sub-forums on this site. A lot of elmoto manufacturers have bit the dust over the past...

    My BMW dealer has just received a (not cheap or fast) 2021 Vespa Elettrica. They also sell the Energica electric motorcycle line and have just received the latest 21.5 KWh battery versions, which you...

    It is also interesting to see how many electric motorcycle brands have fallen by the wayside over the past 10 years. Just scroll down and check out the names on the brand forums below.
