    Sounds to me like what you need is a Vectrix VX-1.



    You don't need to worry about that - the actual rotating (not reciprocating) components in an ICE motor aren't that substantial.
    The rotor...

    There are three primary reasons why they don't exist already I'm afraid:
    1 - battery prices
    2 - battery volume
    3 - battery mass

    The former means that 100km worth of pack is going to cost...

    Very much a matter of budget and what you call 'fun'.

    The best offering on the market right now in terms of replacing a commuter roadbike is the Zero SR (F or S) - so if you have the funds and...

    Unsprung mass is unlikely to affect the handling of a machine like that all that adversely - I wouldn't be too concerned.
    Take a look at this thread for some relevant commentary.

    Given you're tall, I'd go for a dual-sport/trailie type.
    Varadero, V-strom, Tenere... etc...

    On the whole, that spec seems fairly optimal - by which I mean that you'll be using it to its full...

    Series capacitance == (C1*C2)/(C1+C2)
    --> If C1=C2=1e-3F, when arrange in series the capacitance of the network becomes 5e-4F (half of the capacitance of either one, but with twice the rated...

    Meet the RGNT No.1

    This is something like what would be awesome to do with that little machine (url here):

    That's an interesting looking kit there alright - unfortunately I know nothing about it so I'm not in a position to advice beyond saying that 3kW aught to perform like something with about 5HP, which...

    I'm afraid your budget is a good deal too low for anything to achieve that spec dude.
    You'd be doing pretty well just to get sufficient batteries for that range at that price, and that's before you...

    To be fair, I expect that easy 'trailering' is actually a very legitimate concern for most Harley owners alright.

    ;)

    I've heard about those cheap ones alright - I expect they will upgrade quite well provided you can either reprogram or replace the charger, and ideally fit a BMS as well.

    Bent steel tube in the case of trellis, and welded pressed forms in the case of aluminium for the most part AFAIK.
    Machine finishing a cast would certainly be more work than welding up a frame. You...

    Very different load profiles between scooter and streetbike performance.

    I'd be concerned that the proposed 'chassis' design would be overly stiff - granted we're unlikely to be pushing them to...

    As for the beemer - looks like the "chassis" is intended to be the battery box... that's daring.
    Not sold on that rake angle for a roadster.

    That colour is a bit unfortunate IMO but my god it is one seriously good looking machine isn't it!?

    Ah yeah, appropriate gearing assumed, a 2.5HP equivalent electric motor will easily surpass a 3HP engine on performance terms alright, so no concern there.

    The market price for 1kWh of traction...

    Howdy Graham,

    That's a stunning like machine right there!
    No doubt the anoraks will have a few words to say about defiling it in such a fashion. :rolleyes:

    1.8kW is only about 2.5hp...

    There was a faired version of that at Motorcycle Live in Birmingham last year - they had no spec at all to offer at the time.
    The uncle is headed over this year so I'll ask him to keep a lookout.
