Electric powered two wheelers are expected to be the future by many. There are already motorcycles and bicycles available that are purely electric or supplemented only by human pedal power.
We want to know your perspective. If you have been using a two wheeled vehicle powered by an electric motor for any extended period of time, we would like to know your thoughts in the Comments section below. Give us the details of your purchase, including make, model and price. Tell us what your experience has been. Has the useful range (miles available before necessary recharge) been sufficient for your purposes? Do you recharge at your destination (work or school for instance), and do you do this for free? How has charging your electric vehicle impacted your electric bill? Are there any maintenance issues or expenses dissimilar from those faced by owners of traditional, internal combustion engine motorcycles? Would you buy the same motorcycle/scooter/bicycle again?
We will be testing electric-engined two wheelers in the future, but we want to know what your experience has been to this date. I also want to invite readers who have electric automobiles (electric only, not hybrids) to share their experiences. The Nissan Leaf is an example.
