Range and charging will always be the issue for a while. Awesome bike tho. Would ride the out of it. I'd have to put a baseball card in the spokes tho.

A race version of this bike won the pikes peak overall by 20 second. 100 mile range at highway speeds isn't too bad.

With electric motors you have all the torque from the start all the way until you crash it

The IOM TT zero is going to be awesome this year.

The pace of development egged on by this event has see electrics do in four years what took four decades of development for the ICE.

And more mfgrs getting into it and bringing top road racing tallent with them.

There are also many privateers and even college such as those from Ohio state university who have put together very respectable machines and gotten podium finishes there too.

Although it is a single lap and not two. The pace parity is nearly there to the top bikes and on par with the twins. This year should see them continue to advance further.
