Electric bikes - I can’t decide whether they’re the future, or just a gimmick. You can’t quite beat the smell of petrol and the roar of a v-twin but we're constantly being told we've got to reduce our carbon footprint or the world will end and all the polar bears will be killed. Aaaaah!
The problem with a lot of electric ventures is that for some reason they get the blind designers to style them. Check out this new eco-scooter monstrosity from Yamaha that was previewed at the Tokyo Motor Show. It looks like the love child of a push bike and an Xbox. Who the hell is going to ride this?!
Slightly better is this 'Mission One' bad boy which can do 150mph. All well and good then until the battery dies. It will do 150 miles on one charge, but you don't want to be caught short with a flat battery in the middle of nowhere. Bears might get you!
Big thanks to the 500+ people who have joined my Facebook page that started a week ago, and keep an eye out for updates.
