Sweet Electric Motorcycle

Scheduled to ship later this summer, the Electric Motorsport GPR-S will cost about eight grand, recharge in 90 minutes, and have a range of about 60 miles, which seems like plenty for an urban commuter. The picture below shows it sans faring, but there are plenty of good shots of it fully clothed over on the Electric Motorsport site, and I liked the looks of the Super Motard too. The idea of an electric motorcycle is pretty cool, and since EVs don't have emissions, and bikes don't have any safety requirements, it makes sense that companies could make just one model for anywhere in the world, so hopefully, we'll start seeing lots of them on the roads.
