Compelling discussion piece from Visordown...

http://www.visordown.com/features/lunchtime-debate-why-electric-bike-makers-are-mostly-doing-it-wrong/26072.html

t can’t be a coincidence that the few firms starting to make real headway in the area, such as Brammo, offer machines that are absolutely as conventional as possible in every respect apart from their power units.

Wouldn't it be interesting if Harley turned its LiveWire into a full-scale production model instead of a customer feedback exercise.

Once buyers are convinced that electricity isn’t just a replacement for the internal combustion engine but an actual advance on it, then the makers can feel free to throw in as many mad suspension or styling ideas as they want. Some of them might even stick. In the meantime, combining electric power with ‘radical’ technology that has a proven track record of commercial failure probably isn’t the greatest business plan.
