Everything you need to know about Electric Motorbikes

It wasn’t going to be long until the futuristic visions of an electric motorbike model became a reality, especially with the car world already thriving. However, the first patent for an electric bike was submitted back in 1895 and it has blossomed since then.

There are even racing events dedicated to electric models including Formula E and TT Zero event at the Isle of Man TT, which is growing more popular and competitive each year. But, it’s understandable that it might not be as widely accepted by the biking community, it goes against the grain of what motorcycling is all about – the power, speed and most importantly the sound – but there are some positives to owning an electric model.

If you’re looking for a fun and practical commuting machine then switching to electric could be the move for you, especially if you’re riding in London; congestion and emission charges are not applicable to these models. With charging points popping up in your local shopping centre car parks, all you need to do is plug in, swipe your card (which is linked to your bank account) and let it charge whilst you pick up your weekly shop.

Recently, we’ve seen electric-only motorcycle manufacturers popping onto the scene including Zero Motorcycles and NIU Electric Scooters, to name just a few. It’s obviously that there’s a market out there because even the likes of VespaBMW and even  Harley Davidson with the launch of the brand new Harley LiveWire, are now attempting venture into the market. Starting prices for a new model can range from £10,000 upwards with max speeds of over 100mph and mile range of up to 120+ miles – not bad at all.

Benefits of owning an electric motorbike 

Take a look at our list below of just some of the key benefits of owning an electric motorbike:

  • Government grants – upto 20% or £1,5000 towards the cost of an electric model
  • Fuel costs – it costs £1 or £2 to fully charge for an 80 – 100 mile range
  • Zero road tax
  • Lower emissions
