Brompton Challenges London Transit Riders To Hop On An Electric Bike Instead

September 16th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

The fine folks over at Brompton took to the tubes in London with a new pitch: ditch the usual commute in favor of a ride on one of Brompton's lightweight, compact folding electric bikes. Most folks in the world still haven't ridden on an electric bicycle, which makes the proposal that much more exciting


Attending National Drive Electric Week Event In Florida

September 16th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

Yesterday, I attended the Drive Electric Week event in New Port Richey. Next week, if all goes as planned, I'll attend another one in Florida. I've been attending these sorts of events for a few years. Although I enjoy them, I don't think they are very effective at their stated purpose. Every time I attend a Drive Electric event, it seems that it is preaching to the choir. I was happy to see a few non-EV owners at the event, but the majority of the people there owned an


The CERO One Brings Japanese Sensibility & Efficiency To The World Of Utility E-bikes

September 4th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

The CERO One e-bike is the brainchild of co-founder and CEO of CERO Bikes Kiyoshi Iwai. After yet another day of crawling through Los Angeles traffic, Kiyoshi was at his wits' end. He envisioned a Los Angeles where people moved around the sunny city on bicycles. Where smog was replaced with fresh air and hours spent in a car were exchanged for more time with family exploring the city


The Electrified Tern GSD Utility Bike Can Haul 400 Pounds Of People & Gear

August 30th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

The folks over at Tern have built a number of bikes and ebikes that enable more people to spend more time on bikes, thanks to the unique functionality they pack under the hood. They brought a fully loaded Tern GSD over for us to run through the paces for a few weeks so naturally, we obliged. We took the GSD out on the town on long commutes, beach rides, hauling the kids around town, and fully-loaded trips to the store. In every circumstance, the GSD performed admirably, even asking for more as our weary legs were increasingly augmented by the battery and mid-frame mounted motor

Here's your chance to go riding on weekdays and racing on weekends!


Small & Micro EVs Would Sell & Work Better If They Didn’t Look Funny

August 24th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

As good as small EVs like the Smart (and its motorcycle-engined gas predecessors) do their jobs, they just aren't that appealing. They are built as tall as a more traditional compact hatchback, but much shorter and narrower. I'm sure the reason they're built this way is for ease of entry and exit and other utilitarian purposes, but it gives them a poor drag coefficient along with the odd looks


The Rayvolt Cruzer Is A Turbocharged Work Of Art On Wheels

July 13th, 2019 | by Kyle Field

In its quest to start a people-powered electric bike Rayvolution, Barcelona-based Rayvolt has been churning out a line of unique ebikes that blend the classic motorcycle styling of yesteryear with the high tech electric powertrains of tomorrow for customers, today


£90,000 Buys You The Ultimate Electric Café Racer, The Arc Vector

June 30th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

By putting the price upfront, Arc Vector wants to remove any potential confusion around this electric motorcycle (e-motorcycle). The performance, like the price, will be wild. Although I've seen more than my fair share of extravagance, my first question is, is this thing wilder than the already insane Lightning Motorcycle LS218? If so, then the Arc Vector electric motorcycle is going to be thunderous!
