Accelerating This Electric Motorcycle Is As Easy As Riding A Bike

There is nothing wrong with a good old-fashioned motor pedal. I’m a fan of the two-stroke mopeds that were all the rage in transportation back before I was born.

Zero Motorcycles Teases Its Next Electric Superbike

We like what Santa Cruz-based Zero Motorcycles does. It builds a good quality electric motorcycle for a good price, and it was among the first brands to really put their whole ass into electric two wheelers. By all accounts Zero’s newest sport electric—the SR/F—launched last year is quite a good naked bike with a good…Read […]
