So is there a market for these big ticket electric jobs?
I dont think so
But , they have to show what they can do, and that's worth something to anyone who build things with engines
On the political side, several countries are already talking about a cut off for combustion engines in 2030.......Imagine that, in only 10 years time.
Someone have a lot of work to do !!
No engine then count me out.
Econ 101: supply and demand. Harley has decided to test the market at that level...their board must think they can sell 'em at a profit.
If Can-Am offered their 3-wheelers as full electric, I'd be sorely tempted...but not @ $30K. I'd rather they be similarly priced to the gas burner models.
These bikes have many technological advances, like heads-up displays that appear in the rider's helmet visor. Check out this short video:
They can sell at a loss for the numbers they are making. They can establish market share if it takes off. Lots of lessons to be learned from electric auto roll out.
This would be a good idea. People are already paying up to 25k for these things blinged out new. If they can do a a basic electric model for about 10k more I think it would sell.
You could put playing cards in the spokes and you can sound like a real motorcycle then.
China will appear to be sitting on the sidelines for a while, but once the trade landscape is more favorable to them, they will be positioned to offer a basic electric bike that will be a fraction of the current cost.
What kind of range are they talkin' for the electric bikes? 100 miles isn't too much worse from what I get from a tank of gas, but "recharging" time is about 30 seconds for my gas tank.
Electric vehicles would be a lot more practical if you didn't have hours, or at least many minutes, of down time for recharging. If batteries were modular, standardized and scalable (do you need a two-cell or a six-cell flashlight?), and one could just exchange depleted ones for charged ones at a station, they'd be a lot more acceptable. I know, the batteries are heavy, blah, blah, but if there was a standard, it could include a provision for automated mechanical swapping.
You're welcome, I'll take my million-a-week as direct-deposit please.
Nope....not in a million years.
No matter if it's an engine, battery or wound up elastic band, always wear your helmet.
Whew,that makes me feel better. Thought maybe Henry somehow managed to acquire HD.
One of our local hd dealers has been chosen as one of the limited number of dealers selling the Live Wire. According to their service manager they have been getting lots of interest from potential customers.
I am eagerly looking forward to my first ride on an electric motorcycle.
Car crashes are a major cause of traumatic brain injury. So I hope you wear a helmet whenever you travel by car.
I haven’t read much about them, but I imagine they’d be really quick. I’d love to ride one.
It's like anything else: they're going to be expensive until the product is on the far side of the experience curve. People who want to be early adopters will pay the high prices to be early adopters; those who think it's too expensive will sit it out.
In 1919, you could buy a car for around $1,000. That's $15,000 in today's dollars, and I guarantee you wouldn't want to pay even a small fraction of that for a comparable car today.
The computer (or mobile phone) in front of you was an expensive, not-very-capable gadget that was pooh-poohed as a toy for the rich. Now they're cheap and indispensable.
Just buy a electric pushbike that can to a fast speed. The added weight to make it look like a traditional motorbike is unnecessary.
Throw in a dash cam, selfie stick and a thousand free youtube subs and the sales will increase.
Electric motor, Mine don't even have an electric starter. This Buck Rodgers crap is getting outta hand
There's a market.
If I could afford one, I'd be tempted. But, in reality, if I had that kind of money to burn, Id get a prewar D-18
