Advantages of going electric
What can an electric vehicle offer over a conventional petrol or diesel powered vehicle?
With so few moving parts, routine maintenance is significantly reduced when compared to a conventional petrol motorbike. Beauty is in the simplicity!
Tyre, Brakes and a nut and bolt check is basically all that needs doing. And don't forget the reliability benefits of having less parts to go wrong!
"Re-fuel" while you sleep
Ever found yourself short of time to get to a petrol station before work? With a home charger, and a removable battery system you can re-fuel while you sleep or work! so no need for that last minute panic!
Reduced running costs
On average, an electric motorbike is only 1p per mile to run, couple that with the lesser maintenance costs (as shown in advantage No.2) and £0 tax and you could save a small fortune. And if you change under your desk at work, your saving would be even greater!
Renewable Sustainable Fuel
Use of green energy is something that is under more and more focus, but not all energy sources are currently what we would describe as "Green", including the obvious fossil fuels. In 2019 the UK started producing more energy from sustainable sources than from fossil fuels, and that trend has continued. So, if you use an electric vehicle, most of the electricity comes from sustainable sources like off-shore wind farms and solar farms, meaning you can further reduce your carbon footprint over time!
Current legislation has aligned electric motorbikes with the equivalent horse power converted to kW. This allows for a continuous power output of 11kW with the CBT legal range. However, with 11kW continuous power, your very likely to see over 30kW peak power, making electric equivalents much more powerful that their petrol powered grandfathers!
Superior Riding Experience
We may be used to the norm of changing gears, load exhaust noise, vibration and the smell of fuel and oil, but take all of that away and you're left with a smooth, quiet, vibration and smell free riding experience which creates a premium feeling ride. Think about it, companies like Rolls Royce and Bentley spend millions to achieve exactly this!
