Wonder how long it'll be before we have the first sticky post with instructions on how to upgrade Triumph wiring?

If I could find a reliable electric Triumph used for around $2000, I'd buy one. Until then, craigslist (gas)Triumphs are my favorite bike!

I think initially electric bikes will mostly have a different customer base than the manufacturers have now. This is a good thing if it gets more bikes on the roads.

I, for one, would love to have one of each. electric for the short daily stuff, and gas for the longer rides.

Biggest problem is where to recharge away from home . I have two businesses that provide holiday accommodation to provide charge points is not cheap , at some point I will have to stump up the money to have charging stations fitted . Authorities world wide need to make sure all electric vehicles can use the same charge points . Already had a customer who drove from Germany with an electric car .

Don't despair. Eric Buell is at it again, this time with a French investor and the boss of the Alfa F1 team to build electric bikes. The first one is for urban riders with the motor in the rear wheel. Prices start at $11K. The company is called, Fuell.
