Bombardier Recreational Products provided a brief update on its upcoming Can-Am electric motorcycles, the Pulse roadster and Origin dual-sport. Both models are still undergoing testing while construction is underway for a new plant in Querétaro, Mexico, which will produce the electric bikes. Can-Am is aiming to launch Origin and Pulse "before the end of 2024", with final specs and pre-orders expected next summer. Until then, here are some fresh new photos of the prototypes.

    The Salton Sea area, of all places, is apparently going to be to Lithium extraction what Saudi Arabia is to oil. This development really is perfect, as the Salton Sea area is in America and it is already a complete economic and environmental wasteland. Sorry oppressed 3rd world kids, you are probably going to be mostly "rendered redundant" once this fully gets online.

    This still leaves the matter of the American power grid, which is about on par with the rest of our infrastructure. Energy doesn't magically appear just because we want it to. Trillions and decades are needed to get the power generation and especially distribution network up to speed to handle a significant migration to EVs.

    They look good for electric bikes, but if they are like the other e-motorcycles on the market, their cost / functionality ratio will keep them as a 2nd or 3rd toy at best for most. I definitely look forward to trying one however.

    Too bad Can-Am doesn't come back with an ICE model. They were absolute beasts in the 70s....
