Charge Up | Benefits of an Electric Motorcycle

Electric motorcycle technology has grown leaps and bounds in the past few years.  Improved battery life and efficiency are two of the biggest reasons why riders all over the world consider electric motorcycles as a viable alternative mode of transportation.  We’ve even seen some of the biggest motorcycle brands start to produce these machines including Harley Davidson, Lightning, and Zero Motorcycles.  If you love to ride you should consider looking into the electric motorcycle market. Here’s a few the benefits you can look forward to if you decided to make the switch.

Need for Speed?

The biggest concern most longtime riders have about electric motorcycles is whether they can match the power of a traditional bike.  Believe it or not, this one problem you don’t have to worry about! The electric motor allows for instant torque meaning electric bikes can actually accelerate faster than their gas powered competitors.

Go Green

It might be an obvious statement but electric motorcycles are better for the environment.  With no smoke emissions, electric bikes will help reduce air pollution which is especially important in larger cities.  If you are looking for a way to get engaged with the “Go Green” initiative, an electric motorbike is a fun place to start.

No Noise

One of the most notable differences between gas powered and electric motorcycles is the sound.  The latter doesn’t have the typical roaring engine or loud exhaust. This makes listening to music and talking with fellow riders significantly easier.  Riders of electric bikes should be extra cautious of their surroundings however as other drivers might not be aware of your presence like they normally would.

Lightweight Design

Electric motorbikes need to carry less weight which can make riding and maneuvering easier.  In particular, if you are a lighter rider, you might find an electric bike easier control.

Low Maintenance

Because of the electric motor, there is no need for several of the high maintenance components of a traditional bike.  Oil changes, spark plugs and air filters are just a few of things you’ll never have to worry about needing to replace or maintain.

No More Gas!

That’s right we saved the best for last!  The best part of owning an electric motorcycle is you’ll never need to stop at the gas station.  It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand how much money you can save. Some people have criticized electric bikes because of the steep initial investment but over time it will prove to be the cheaper option.

    "After a long trip riding in Canada, I blew the motor on my '07 Polaris Switchback. I took the sled to Moto Z and Jeff did some trouble shooting to find the cause of failure. Not only was Jeff quick with the repair, but he also took the time to find the best and most inexpensive solution to rebuild the motor. Jeff stood by his work and even fine tuned everything once snow arrived the following season. Great work and excellent pricing, Thanks"
