Canadian looking for an electric bike

I've been looking around for an electric motorcycle but there really haven't been that many interesting options that I've found so far. The Livewire is pretty cool looking though, and its a Harley!

I hope they bring this test ride tour to Canda so that I can test it out and see the Livewire in person.

What are you looking for in an electric bike?
Are you only interested in an electric cruiser or would you ever consider going for an electric sport bike?

Welcome!

TBH there aren't too many options out there right now so I am just exploring what is out there regardless of style. As long as its comfortable and has a good range I'll be happy with it. I don't think there are enough options yet to be picky about style of motorcycle.

Hi Hawkman, where have you looked so far, and what do you find interesting? Zero Motorcycles has electric motorcycles you can by right now instead of waiting for Harley's prototype to become a real product. They have dealers in Canada that you can find at http://www.zeromotorcycles.com/locator/. Lito Green Motion has just released their Sora model and is headquartered in Quebec: http://www.litogreenmotion.com/find-dealer#/dealers.

I've heard of Zero motorcycles before. They seem to be pretty good at what they do. Unless you really really want a Harley, Zero probably gives you ample choices.

I did know about some of the other brands of electric bikes but I am going to need to save up some money anyhow before I can actually purchase something, and I really like Harley, so I figured that I might wait for this. Either way I'm probably not looking to buy until sometime next year.

I'm thinking sometime early next spring. That way I can save up some money and I'll have it around just in time for next year's riding season.
