This killed it for me ---" Currently the TTX01 has 14 kWh battery packs, but the goal is to have hot swappable 20 kWh batteries which will power the bike at normal road speeds for about 50 miles. Recharge time for the batteries should be under two hours " ---- It may be fine for commuting to work if you are close , but no more all day rides , or touring to Oregon etc.. , neat idea putting a small motor on the front wheel to make an ??"all wheel drive" bike .
I can only surmise that the "2005" in your name is derived from your year of birth. You weren't born yesterday, but pretty damn close to it. - Howattzer to Phantom2005

Yep, that short distance definitely does suck. If it could do at least 1000KM on a charge...
The bike doesn't need oil. So no oil changes. So forums like this will die off, what with the lack of "What type of oil is best?" threads. This bike spells DOOM for BCSB!
"what kind of electron is best for my bike - sub-atomic or quantum"?
If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.
What would be the purpose of two wheeeel drive? Endless endo's.

Woah, there HAS to be at least one typo in there. I get ~40 miles out of a 6.3KWh pack on mine. The math says that I should get about 130 miles out of the 20KWh of power that their new pack will allegedly have.Currently the TTX01 has 14 kWh battery packs, but the goal is to have hot swappable 20 kWh batteries which will power the bike at normal road speeds for about 50 miles. Recharge time for the batteries should be under two hours.
Hell, I'd do quite a bit to get even a 14KWh pack that actually fit on my frame.
Either the article is wrong or this is the most inefficient electric motor I've ever seen.
Hmm performance is ok but yeah pretty useless if I can't even go to the next town which is about 55 km away and make it home. I can see electric bikes making it as city bikes but proper long distance bikes? No way not with current technology. I also hate how they say it leaves no carbon foot print (other than hmm manufacturing and disposal of the bike and all its pieces).

I hate this, too. "No footprint" is impossible. Hell, we all have a footprint just by *breathing.* Much reduced footprint and much less dependence on petroleum products would be true, though. I wish they'd be more accurate...I also hate how they say it leaves no carbon foot print (other than hmm manufacturing and disposal of the bike and all its pieces).
Sometimes EVs are touted as "zero maintenance," which is another complete load. It's still a motorcycle. Still needs chains, tires, fork oil, bearings... everything but the oil changes.
how does your electric fz600 perform?
