    The latest electric motorcycles and scooters

    Here is a link to photos of new electric motorcycles and scooters from a recent UK bike show. Photos you get, but not much in the way of words.

    Here is another new low-power (3KW) city motorcycle from the startup Fly Free Smart Motorcycles. Just like their Scrambler model, their cafe racer is nice looking. But why does is look fast, yet it has a top speed and maximum range only usable in city riding? https://electricmotorcycles.news/fly...smart-classic/

    Is it really that difficult to design and manufacture a nice looking electric motorcycle that is capable of freeway speeds and has a range of over 100 miles? Zero could use some competition.
