Somewhere between sports bike-style electric bike and the radical styling of Curtiss is this: Switch eSCRAMBLER. No prize for guessing why we are featuring it. Oh, you need a hint why? That’s because it is an absolutely looker.
Just like 4-wheeled electric vehicles, electric bike‘s design is normalizing. They are looking pretty much like it’s fossil fuel powered counterparts. In other words, nothing radical. Case in point, the new SR/S electric motorcycle by Zero Motorcycles. Don’t get me wrong, SR/S is a gorgeous bike.
The jaw-dropping custom Indian Scout Bobber, Appaloosa, we saw last year has been upgraded to take on the ice surface of Lake Baikal in Siberia at the 2020 Baikal Mile Ice Speed Festival (February 27-March 1).
Slightly over a century ago, long before Harley-Davidson started selling trucks that look nothing the brand’s motorcycles, the American motorcycle maker did made trucks, but they were not what you imagine them to be. The 1916 Harley-Davidson Model J Package Truck you see was one of these ‘trucks’.
Ever wish you could take the Indian Motorcycle FTR 1200 on a backroad adventure? Well, you can’t, but the scrambler-inspired FTR1200 known as FTR Rally sure can. First announced at EICMA 2019 in Milan, the FTR Rally is now available in stateside with a starting price of $13,499.
Don’t let the scooters on the road fool you. Scooters are cool, but if you think you need to trick them out to make them look cool, well, think again. Just take a look at Italjet Dragster Scooter. Seriously, is that cool or what?
Harley-Davidson Fat Boy. The iconic V-twin softtail cruiser most recognizable for its solid-cast disc wheels is 30 years young this year. And that calls for a celebration which the American bike maker is doing so with the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 30th Anniversary – a handsome, blacked-out ride.
What you see before you is the “world’s first Tesla Cyberbike”. OK. We are bullshitting you. Tesla has no electric motorcycle, yet. What you see here is actually a new electric bicycle from electric bicycle maker Super 73.
Electric vehicles like electric car is becoming an everyday thing, but electric motorcycle? Not so much. Well, I mean, if you consider electric scooter as motorcycle, then there’s quite a few options in the market. However, if you are thinking performance electric motorcycle, there’s just a handful.
Since its rebranding, Curtiss Motorcycle Company has been pitching some really radical electric bike ideas. The latest we saw was the Curtiss Hades Electric Motorcycle and now, we heard, it has gotten a redesign ahead of its production in Spring 2020. Spoiler alert. It is still pretty damn radical.
