Ready To Customize An Electric Bike?

If you feel like getting “Green”, know that you will have to sacrifice performance and spend more money than for a gas powered motorcycle. Still the new Electric GPR-S from Electric Motorsport has a 70 mph top speed and a 60 mile range. The bike takes about four hours to charge with an on-board charger or about 1.5 hours with an optional speed.  Good for daily commuting. But the success of this new e-bike is its look, much better than its current competition. It has a powder-coated steel frame with a braced aluminum swing arm. Expect to begin to see a few customized e-bikes in some of the new 2009 bike shows. GPR-S By Electric Motorsports.

    Not bad. Still a long way to go in the looks department, but it wouldn’t take a lot for someone with a bit of experience with Cafe Racers or Street Fighters to bring out the full potential of this bike.

    Not too thrilled about it, can’t say that I have a lot of interest in this. Might be good in the city but that’s about it. Why ruin a motorcycle by making it electric, they are efficient enough as it is with our “outdated” gas engines.

    That electric motorcycle looks pretty cool compared to it’s competition.

    Wow, pretty cool- I’d be curious about the range in other conditions- 2 up, luggage, etc…

    Seems like a step in the right direction tho- very interesting technology!

    for me, these vehicles fall into the same category as scooters: cool in a forward thinking eco-kind of way, useful for a very specific and narrow slice of the demographic pie and totally irrelevant to my interests.
