This Electric Motorcycle Has Storage Space Instead of a Petrol Tank

Unless you're on some giant Harley designed for a long cruise across the country, a backpack is probably the most storage room you've got on a motorcycle. But besides the savings on fuel, an electric motorcycle has other advantages, like a giant hole where the petrol tank and engine used to be—which this bike, the Feddz, repurposes as built-in storage.

Razor Crazy Cart Review: Even More Fun Than it Looks

World's Fastest Electric Superbike: All the VROOM, None of the Gas

Electric motorcycles have been on the market for a few years now. Like all electric-power transports, they offer fantastic acceleration (there's no sliding scale for electric torque—it's either off or it's 100-percent engaged), zero emissions, and are far less expensive to refuel than gas engines. They do, though, suffer a limited range on account of the physical limitations of their Li-ion power supplies. That's about to change with the £40,000 Mission RS from San Francisco-based Mission Motors; it's a superbike in every sense of the word and it's about to bring the rukus. Read More >>

This Audi Designed Electric Bike Is Pure Carbon-Fibre Porn
