Why go electric ?

# Smooth, easy to control electric motor with impressive torque...
# As a result of the 'grippy' nature of the drivetrain, the rear tire wears out at a slower rate compared to petrol powered equivalents.
# When the rider shuts off the throttle, it is off, no idle, always instantly responds the same way regardless of altitude or humidity. Clutch is optional.
# No burning your body parts, no fuel to leak out, no gearbox/ carb/ air filter/ exhaust pipe/ cylinder to maintain.
# Simple to control = improved riding technique as you have more time to think about body position, suspension and brake control.
# Cheaper to own in the medium to long term of use.
# Easy to charge- any standard power point is now your fuel station, or perhaps a solar PV array!
# EM build their own Lithium Polymer batteries with impressive energy storage and delivery versus light weight in 3 x sizes- 16 Ah, 25 Ah or 40 Ah accross the model platform. Major fearure is the in-built BMS- battery management system.
# The EM's motor does in fact make it's own electric 'whirring' sound that provides the sound feedback the rider needs to maintain grip and control.
# It takes less 'human' rider energy to pilot one of these machines, perhaps due to less vibration, not having to constantly operate the clutch, gearbox or kick-starting. Keeping the control functions simple has unexpected benefits. 
# The key to improving your riding level is to ride the bike more, an EM opens the opportuninty to ride in more places, therefore, more often. (for example, at home in the driveway)
