I'm thinking of selling electric motorcycles, WOULD YOU BUY ONE?
We all want electric toys, I want to build and sell electric street legal motorcycles, would you buy one?

The first one I plan on building will include theese things:

Mars 0708 Permanent Magnet DC Motor

Kelly KD48401 Contoller

4 Optima 34D 55Ah deep cycle, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, AGM batteries

Availible on 1980s style frame and crotch rocket, both versions are capable of 55 MPH and have a twenty three mile range at 30MPH.

1980s frame gos for 5,000 and crotch rocket gos for 6,500(crotch rocket displays no electronis)

Battery uprgrades to 3.20 volt lithium ion can increase range to 40-50 miles at 30 MPH but will throw 1,200 in aditional costs.

Motor upgrades to either advance DC or AC can increase top speed upto 120MPH but would add inbetween 500-2500 in additional cost.

Theese cycles cost less than 0.01 cents per mile to operate.

WOULD YOU BUY ONE?

(incase ur thinking about one with real motorcycle range and speed we're talkin 20-40k)

Yes, it's viable, but your market is limited by your necessary retail price.

yup, I've added shit up and I could get it down to 2,200 for a moped or dirtbike style with 35MPH top speed and 20 mile range at 20MPH, but I'd rather pay 6,500 for somthing with cooler looks and more kick.

Re: I'm thinking of selling electric motorcycles, WOULD YOU BUY ONE?
A big part of the thrill of riding a motorcycle is the noise of the exhaust. The old biker adage "loud pipes saves lives" would effect how people think about these things. There is also the stigma of electric scooters and the association that bikers would make. You might be able to attract some granola folks but not true bikers.

There is a good useful opinion.

I could build one thay could whoop anything under 700cc. in acceleration, prob not top speed, for 10,000(but racing like that you'd have maybe ten miles of range at most), you could get 50 miles at 45MPh prob for that price. I'd need to charge like, 15,000 at least.

70mph, 100 mile range, and not even close to $20,000 buddy.
Increase the range and speed, then decrease the price and we all might think about it.

and thats the problem with renewable energy, it isnt cheap. and neither are vehicles.
Christians have had to face and realize their own sins, and feel compelled to try and help others as well.

This chant of Holier than thou is wrong and is taught by others making you think what is cool or acceptable to them.

The thought of "believe as i do" is strongly in an unbelievers life, because they feel they will be ridiculed by their friends.

Every falsehood a unbeliver weilds, is merely a reflection of the obstacles that unbeliever must face from his very own peers.

Unbelievers are the true followers, they are dedicated to fear of what other people think of them.

And because of this, they are ashamed of themselves, but wall themselves up to feel comfortable and safe, assuring themselves with rationality and laughter.

Which is insanity!

100 miles range at 20MPH maybe. high speeds eat up battery life drasticly.

no way.. My 99 VFR800 gets 45-48MPG at 75mph and the V4 engine sounds awesome at low revs or high revs.

why would anyone want a electric vehicle that sounds like giant vibrator humming going down the road ?
