|Electric Motorbikes Could
Ride To Work & Fun!
An electric motorbike might be news to you, but they are poised to make
a very quiet and emission free landing in the states. Also known as the
electric motor bike or electric motorcycle, these bikes run on
batteries! EMB's are becoming popular nowadays because of the
increasing price of gasoline. They are also environment friendly and do
not cause air pollution.
Since the time motorcycles were first introduced in the latter half of
the 19th century, they have become a popular mode of transport, and a
lot of innovations have been seen in the motor bike industry.
Electric motorbikes now come in two types, the power-on-demand
motorbikes and the power-assist motorbikes. Electric motorbikes used to
be used for races only, but now they are used as a trendy means of
transport. Electric bike motors are powered by batteries, which have a
lifespan of about of one to two years. It can be charged 300 times, for
a total travel length of 15,000 kms. An electric motorbike has a blade
which delivers a horse power equivalent to a 250 four-stroke motor. The
blade does not produce pollution nor noise.

bikes, as opposed
to motorized are differentiated by speed motorbikes have greater
speeds, most often greater than 30 mph (about 50 km/h). Electric bike
motors are almost silent with zero-emission. Because of certain
limitations of battery technology, which are normally the source of
power of the electric motor, the top speed and operating range of
electric motorbikes suffer. However, fuel cells and petroleum-electric
hybrids are now being developed to improve the performance and extend
the range of the electric motors. Examples are the Honda's scooter
using the Honda FC Stack, ENV from Intelligent Energy, and the Yamaha
FC-AQEL. Under development are petroleum hybrid-electric motorbikes,
the Ecycle, and Yamaha's Gen-RYU.
advantages and disadvantages over the use of gasoline powered
Advantages include lower cost of fuel—electric power costs
25% only of the cost of gasoline, and the motor is almost silent,
environment friendly with almost zero emission because of the use of
grid power in charging batteries. An electric motorbike s light weight,
can be ridden indoors and kept indoors. Maintenance cost is very low
and there are less maintenance works, like there is no need for change
of oil. An electric motorbike is much cheaper than an electric car, and
it can be used in a V2G system. You do not need to go to a gas station,
you can recharge your batteries at home or in charging stations.
Disadvantages include higher up front costs than the gasoline
powered motorbike. Recharging or fill up time is longer, and the range
is shorter before recharging. The maximum speed is lower at similar
price points. It is quite difficult to bring the battery for recharging
into an apartment, more so electric power outlets are not located
conveniently. They are located in driveways or near streets. The
capacity of the battery can be as low as 20% in winter, with
(lead battery). Riding electric motorbikes is quite dangerous since the
motor is quiet. It tends to be difficult for cars and trucks to notice
an electric motorbike in the streets compared to their counterparts
which are powered by engines.
