Also known as Project LiveWire, this unique motorcycle will be making its way around the U.S. to the end of this year.

I suppose for many of us who absolutely love superbikes and the roar of their engines, there is nothing quite like the equal to that of the sound of a Harley-Davidson that tears down the street. However, such fuel-based engines might soon be accompanied by a greener and cleaner version from headquarters, as it does look as though Harley-Davidson might be working on its first electric motorcycle ever, at least […]

What you see above is known as the Freeride E-Speed electric motorcycle, although it is right now still in the prototype stage, where the Freeride E-Speed hails from KTM-KISKA. It certainly is a beauty to cast your eyes upon, where it performs just like how a normal commuter would expect it to, and also has the capability of performing offroad as well, which means your weekends would be a whole […]
Electric vehicles are starting to gain a whole lot of traction, since they do their bit in helping reduce the amount of greenhouse emissions, not to mention being far easier on your wallet at the end of the day simply because you need not fork out an arm and a leg each time you “fill ‘er up”. While electric cars have been in the limelight most of the time, there […]
When one rides a motorbike, you are expected to sit on it – and not stand, unless of course, you are some sort of stuntman who has mad skills and want to entertain your audience. Well, Performance Concepts’ 2011 MXB Shocker motocrossboard is definitely something different, since this is a hand-controlled two-wheel electric vehicle which does seem to resemble the love child of a snowboard and a dirt bike.Fast forward […]

Electric vehicles tend to be more practical in moving folks from point A to point B without too much of a carbon footprint, but they certainly won’t be able to smoke petrol-powered ones – unless you’re in a Tesla Roadster, of course, but just how long can the Tesla make keep up with a thoroughbred Ferrari in the long haul? The same can be said for electric motorcycles, but with […]
Zero Motorcycles is back with their latest effort, the Zero DS electric motorcycle. It will come equipped with tougher tires and a more aggressive suspension, running entirely off electricity. Despite not using any petrol, the Zero DS is still able to be a zippy vehicle on the street, featuring a huge round headlight in front without making it look out of place. It won’t be able to go as fast […]
Richard Gryzch has had enough with heading off to the gas station whenever his bike’s fuel tank runs empty that he literally took things into his own hands and come up with the Solar Flyer – a solar-powered bike. This project took over two years to complete, and it is believed to be the first solar charged electric motorcycle in the world. Amazingly enough, it has a range of 50 […]
