The electric bike with a 236mile range

Electric touring motorcycle has 24 batteries and does over 200 miles on a single charge

IF there’s one thing holding electric motorcycles back, it’s probably their limited range. Buy one now and you’ll be lucky to get 80 miles on a charge.

But the plug sockets just moved further apart.

Called the Storm Pulse, this ‘electric touring motorcycle’ will do a claimed 236 miles on a single charge, thanks to a 24-carridge battery pack generating up to 28.5kWh of energy

Of course that begs an obvious question. The answer is 340kg according to the makers.

But they say the weight can be reduced ‘to create a lighter bike and more sporty ride’ by removing some of the cartridges.

It does 0-60mph in a claimed five seconds and hits a top speed of 100mph.

The project is the work of a team of students at the Eindhoven University of Technology in Holland, who plan to ride the Storm Pulse around the world in 80 days next year.

It’s set to make its UK debut tomorrow at the Greenpower Final, an electric vehicle marathon at Rockingham Speedway in Northamptonshire.
