Yep, you can!
HMM…TELL ME MORE
Well, each setup runs a configuration specific to the kind of riding involved. The S and the XU have cutting-edge brushless motors (get used to the term) with ZF9 power packs that propel the thing right up to 141 kph. Not bad! And better still, the range is claimed to be a solid 183 kms, provided you don’t ride like a maniac. The removable batteries are tested to last the entire lifespan of the vehicle and along with the on-board charger, you can charge them anywhere. Cutting-edge construction techniques and materials have been employed on this light-weight motorcycle as well as low-maintenance mechanicals. Now, put all that in a light, aircraft-grade, aluminium off-road chassis and you have a little red riding hoot on your hands. Juicy torque, all the way from zero. It eez good, eh?
WHAT WILL IT BE LIKE IN THE REAL WORLD?
They’re going to be leagues ahead of the earlier charger-slave generation of electrics. Promising range, good performance, zero emissions, top-notch engineering and most importantly, fun integrated into motorcycle configurations that actually tempt the motorcyclist inside.
