If you’re looking for a high end electric motorcycle, check out Zero’s 2014 lineup released this week. New Features include with increased horsepower and torque that put them into the superbike range but at the weights of offensive linemen. From Wired:
Everyone crows about horsepower, but torque is what you feel when you nail the gas pedal or twist the throttle. It’s a better measure of acceleration, and for 2014, Zero has cracked the infamous 100 pound-foot mark with its new SR electric motorcycle.
Torque is measured in pound feet — or, for the rest of the world, Newton-meters — and the Zero SR puts down 106 lb-ft — 56 percent more than its standard S counterpart, and a figure that brings it in line with some of the biggest, brashest, and beefiest bikes in the world. But unlike those bruisers and cruisers, the SR tips the scales at a relatively svelte 400 pounds. High grunt and low mass let you hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds.

I could not find a place on this site where I can leave tips or general comments, so I feel more or less forced to do it here.
I want to send you a tip about an exiting new electric bicycle that is about 30% lighter than most other electric bicycles on the market (35 lbs instead of 50 lbs). It is currently in a Kickstarter campaign that is already fully funded at more than 200%.
Take a look at it at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/riide/riide-the-bike-has-evolved-lighter-faster-electric?ref=live
See if you can find a place for this bike on your blog.
PS. You don’t need to post this as a comment about this motorcycle
