It’s no secret that electric bikes have a bright future in electric mobility.
With more and more companies jumping on this trend, we’ve seen some of the largest manufactures such as Super SOCO, Triumph and even Ducati releasing or teasing electric motorcycles.
Yet many riders have asked the question… What are the main benefits of an electric motorcycle? Let’s find out!
Instant Torque: Without a doubt, electric motorcycles are incredibly thrilling! This is largely due to the instant torque and linear power they can deliver. With a twist of the throttle, these eclectic drive trains are able to accelerate much faster than your traditional fuel-powered bike.
Less maintenance: Forget about oil, spark plugs or air filters! Maintenance on electric motorcycles is much easier and cheaper, as they use fewer consumables. Better yet, costly components like a clutch and gearbox aren’t needed, so no need to worry about replacements or breakages of these components.
Ownership Costs: Due to minimal service and the obvious cost of no fuel, the ownership cost of electric bikes vastly out-way that of traditional motorcycles. You may find yourself paying a premium price for the bike at first, yet the general ongoing ownership costs are minimal.
Environmentally-Friendly: By far one of the biggest benefits for electric motorcycles is the reduced carbon footprint and CO2 emissions. With more and more consumers becoming environmentally conscious, the use of limited non-renewable fuel is a huge incentive.
5. Reduced Sound: With no exhaust or thumping stroke of an engine, electric motorcycles are quiet… real quiet! Reducing noise pollution, these electric drive trains are great for riders that want to talk and listen to music. We realise this may be a controversial addition to the list. However, until you ride an electric motorcycle for yourself, the experience of riding silent is unlike any other.
