So if you're looking for something new and interesting, consider an electric motorcycle. They are very strong and they are also environmental friendly. In fact, in the past this type of motorcycle has been used only to race, but the general demand forced the manufacturers to release them on the market. The best thing about this kind of motorcycles is the fact that they are powered by special batteries. Electric motorcycles have been classified into 2 main categories: power-assist motorcycles and power-on-demand.

The battery is the most important element in an electric motorcycle. A lot of people are worried that the battery will last for a very short period of time and they will have to spend a lot of money replacing it too often. But in fact, the battery can be charged aproximatively 300 times.

So you can ride your electric motorcycle for about 15,000 km before you have to change the battery and a year or two you won't have any problems with it. Currently, most electric engines are capable of producing the power equivalent to that of about a 250cc four-stroke motor. But its high performances aren't the only advantage. You can always program the blade of the electric engine to make it suitable to the way you are riding. And if you compare an electric motorcycle to any other regular one, you will be surprised to find out how light it is.

Some of the most popular manufacturers, like Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Honda and EMB Inc originate from Japan and dominate the industry. Now, with the latest developments in technology, you can buy this type of motorcycle very easily online. There are quite a few websites that host such services and you can find there everything you want, from your favorite model to your favorite color.

My town had some big e-bikes during a gas price gouge. Many who bought those bikes were reportedly stopped by cops & told they had 2 license them, so they couldn't ride them. They were advertised as legal, & didn't need a license, but cops said otherwise. The BMV apparently heard from many of these customers, & some sold their e-bikes. I rode 1 in the parking lot when they were new, but didn't have enough $$$ 4 it. The store discontinued the bike since many customers had nightmares from cops about the bikes.

BTW, I now have an e-bike that is legal: it can b pedaled. Cops know me from just commuting, & know I don't cause any trouble, so they never bother me. My friend formerly owned the bike, & cops never bothered him either. I take very good care of the e-bike, & assure the batteries r well maintained
