I wanted to give our readers a heads-up that we have been working on a new article series that will feature electric motorcycles. A space has been maturing at a rapid pace, we have already seen several manufacturers come out with electric motorcycles available for consumers, with several more companies coming closer to market as well.
While early-adopters have been touting the benefits of electrics for some time now, the infancy of this market has many riders remaining on the fence about the gas vs. electric debate. While we here at Asphalt & Rubber believe the future of motorcycling is through electric motorcycles, we wanted to take an in-depth look at this budding sector, and ground some of the debate that has been going on in the industry with some actual experience.
A practical hands-on approach to living with electric motorcycles in a gasoline world, we will be making regular entries to this series over the coming weeks and months as we swing our legs over the various electric motorcycles available for the street and track.
Already the first publication to ride the BRD RedShift SM prototype, A&R has been spending time lately with a 2012 Zero S ZF9 (it really brings the room together). Stay tuned for a review on Zero Motorcycles’ latest street bike, as well as more of our musings about electric motorcycles and the future of internal combustion.
