WHEN E-MOTO GOES BIG

WHEN E-MOTO GOES BIG

H-D also showed their lightweight electric bike concept, a sort of hybrid between a mountain bike and motorcycle.

 

We recently attended the grand opening ceremony for the Petersen Automotive Museum’s new electric motorcycle exhibit. It’s the first of its kind, and if you’re a fan of electric motorcycles, the exhibit is definitely worth a visit.

“There are as many small e-moto companies now than there were motorcycle companies in the early 1900s.”

This WSM Pact concept from Walt Siegl was based on the now-defunct Alta Motorcycles’ motor system.

 

The collection includes a wide array of e-motos. Everything from scooters and light off-roaders to the eagerly anticipated Harley-Davidson Livewire were on display there, as well as Zero’s concept FX Supermoto bike and the wild Curtiss Motorcycles Zeus. 

The exhibit is open at the museum until November 24th. 

Curtiss Motorcycles’ new Zeus electric motorcycle is here. No information on when it will actually be available.

 

The mirror finish and hard edges on the Moto Undone concept bike from Joey Ruiter would likely keep drivers from flashing their brights at you, but may blind people in daylight!

 

This custom concept bike is called the Racer X, built by Mark Atkinson, using Nissan Leaf battery packs. It has a claimed top speed of 115 mph and shows that the design possibilities are endless.

 

Lightning was here with their record-setting LS-218, billed as the fastest production motorcycle on the planet.

 

Harley-Davidson was the title sponsor here, and as such had their flagship bike, the soon-to-be on-sale Livewire.
