It is an interesting idea. I think when battery technology has better density than gas, we will see a shift from said gas to all electric motors. But until then it's not really going to sway gear heads. There will always be those that prefer one or the other. Both have benefits and drawbacks. I'm not sure if an electric motor could compare to our supercharged bikes though. Torque is already available pretty low and they are just too great!

They can compare. Trust me. The energy density thing is the only part holding me back. Give me a 600mi battery and I'll switch to electric, especially if it has gears like Kawasaki's.

That's is a big part of it, I like shifting! Don't know if I need a 600 mile battery, but agreed, need more than what's available with current tech. I would love the silent running and lower wearable items. Plus, something like ceramic bearings in the wheels and lighter weighing wheels would go a long way (yes that's a pun) in milage. :yes:
