A Tale Of Two Oil States: Norway & Alberta, Canada

April 23rd, 2020 | by Barry A.F.

Both Norway and Alberta, Canada are economies that gain huge profits from selling oil. They have huge natural reserves of it and make ginormous profits from feeding our "need" for oil powered transportation. However, their method of deploying those profits is in sharp contrast, and interestingly it even guides their philosophies and how they view climate change

April 16th, 2020 | by Kyle Field

The folks at Apollo Scooters reached out to us about their new line of premium electric scooters.

Electric Royal Enfield Photon Breaks Cover

April 5th, 2020 | by Jo Borrás

Royal Enfield is probably not the company you'd expect to develop a cutting edge, on-trend electric motorcycle. And, you'd be right, because this ultra slick, polished electric Royal Enfield Photon model wasn't built by the Indian company. It was built on the other side of the world, by Electric Classic Cars in England

According to the Motorcycle Assemblers Association of Kenya, there are currently about 600,000 commercial motorcycles in Kenya.

Piaggio Launches Electric Ape With Battery Swap Tech

December 27th, 2019 | by Jo Borrás

The Piaggio Ape (that's "app-eh," not "ape") E-City will feature a long flat battery mounted low in the chassis. That design will help the three-wheeler to maximize interior cargo volume while also aiding in dynamic handling. That's because the heavy battery will help naturally lower the E-City's center of gravity


8 Tesla Dream Vehicles — Rendered

December 27th, 2019 | by Matt Pressman

Back in 2013, when Elon Musk first teased the idea of a pickup truck on Twitter, many thought he was kidding. First, the Tesla CEO had to make the company's fledgling sedan, Model S, a viable contender before moving on to another project that bold. Sure enough, Model S won countless awards and gobbled up marketshare. Years later, Musk's vision for a pickup truck — which certainly turned out to be bold — shocked the world


Scooters Have Improved, But They’ve Still Got Issues

December 18th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

For those of you who live in places with scooters on the sidewalks everywhere, this is probably old news, but my habit of living in the hinterlands does give me a unique perspective on the scooter phenomenon. I do ride one from time to time, but then I'm away from them for months at a time. When things change, I don't experience it gradually

December 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

The electric revolution comes in various shapes and sizes. We are all very familiar with the intricacies of electric cars, but a category that sometimes gets overlooked is scooters. This may be because there hasn’t been an example that shines like a beacon of hope the way Tesla does. Until now, that is, and the scooter we are talking about today is the Etergo AppScooter


BST HyperTEK: An Electric Motorcycle Like No Other

December 11th, 2019 | by Jo Borrás

Whether or not you call the BST HyperTEK a thing of beauty like the Ducati Supermono or 888 is up to you, but there's no denying that the organic-looking carbon fiber frame is a fantastic bit of engineering. Similarly, the copper honeycomb heat sink (?) that occupies the traditional "radiator" position up front, finned aluminum motor, and slick, single-sided rear swingarm also look top-notch


AMA Announces National Motocross Championship For Electric Motorcycles

December 11th, 2019 | by Jo Borrás

There aren't any series to race electric motorcycles in because there aren't enough electric motorcycles to build a series around, so nobody builds electric motorcycles for racing because there aren't any series to race electric motorcycles in. But you'll love this good news coming from the AMA: it is launching a brand-new Mini-E Jr. national championship class that's specifically designed for young riders on electric motorcycles!
