US$8000 for a bike with a range of 42 miles if you're lucky.

Not a hope.

@ExFlyer you think that but there a whole lot of hand wringing London commuters that will jump on this wagon and wont care about $8000

I suspect there is the same market for these in all large cities across Europe.

The people who buy these bikes are not the people that would be buying MCN but there are plenty of them out there.

No matter what your views on electric transport, there is no escaping the fact that this IS what we will be riding in the near future whether you like it or not. We are currently in the twilight of fossil fuel and the advances in electric power as demonstrated at this years TT have made leaps and bounds in a relatively short space of time. I don't relish the prospect of an engine with little or no noise, but then again, if I can choose for it to sound like a Ducati one day and an R1 the next, pay 40p to charge it overnight and not be belching CO2 out the back, then I think we should applaud this companies efforts. Lets enjoy our fossil burners while we can, but lets be realistic and embrace what is to be.

Wether electric is the answer is still debatable, but it's good to see alternatives to I.C. engines becoming available.

But, at that price and with that range, I won't be buying one.

True about the electric debate and the price, but this is a start of an interesting and exciting development in two wheeled transportation.

sperm bank

The early investors in these are taking quite a risk - they must be expecting some serious bad news for petrol heads such that we'll become leccy heads. Whirr whirr whirr.

sexist company

Just looked at the Brammo website. Look, I like to look at half naked women as much as the next hetro-bloke but there's a time and a place. The Brammo mob have a video of partially clad women strutting around - no men, just women. For fucks sake Brammo, get your marketing right. Help, I've gone all politically correct - better go down the pub and sit at one end of the bar shouting out rude words.

These Electric Vehicles have an awfull long way to go yet before they will be anywhere near good enough to replace IC engined Vehicles. And whats also a major problem is how the Government would make up the incredible loss of income from taxes raised on Fossil fuels. Believe me they Know this.

tax breaks

Yep. Also leccy cars get a tax break in the UK, leccy bikes dont. Once this is addressed, the UK becomes attractive as an investment. With a ready leccy infrastructure, tax-type income can be sought directly from the producers of the leccy by forcing them to invest into these types of technologies or pay more tax. Pub time.

You may be right, but I'll believe it when I see it. I was in London last week and I don't recall seeing any electric vehicles then.
