Crazy to see something go so fast with so little noise.
That's cool as hell! The burnout kinda sounded like my kid's Traxxas truck.

Buz, you used 500% more electrons than necessary in making that comment five times.

Electric motorcycles could utilize those electrons for propulsion, as indicated in the article.

I'd like to see the electric technology in a conventional off-road type bike. You know, 18/21" wheels, 12" suspension travel, limited lighting, minimal street equipment, decent tires.

As it stands, the bike is too street oriented for me.

And I have to agree. My much-loved DRZ is looking older these days. I'd love to try a KTM690E, but the for the price.

I pressed the button once and got five replies. That's efficient use of electrons!
