Designing electric motorcycles is often a "green field" design process; you start with a clean slate - no baggage, no legacy, no history. That is why you often see the strangest looking electric motorcycles (Brammo Enertia Open link in a new window, Agility Saietta Open link in a new window, Orphiro Open link in a new window, Axle EV-X7 Open link in a new window). And the Austrian Biiista Open Biiista in a new window (that's three "i" please) can be considered one of them.

Biiista

The shape, though very nice, would look more at home in a comic strip or animation movie, with maybe Jessica RabbitJessica Rabbit riding it. But this is serious. The 5 kWh battery (an 8 kHw is under study) will power this electric motorcycle to speeds of up to 100 kph, with a range of 100 kilometers. That's the performance of a serious 125cc motorcycle, and the bike only weighs 140 kgs.

Biiista

The bike develops 10.5 kW power, and has a torque of 210 Nm, not bad. With its futuristic design, you can be playful with colors.

They've developed several models and they are being used for tests. No pricing or availability as off yet, but I'm sure we'll be seeing more of these designer bikes in the near future.

For one, it would be a nice bike to stroll down to your local wateringhole or Starbucks, or to ride up and down the Champs Elysee avenue in Paris.

For an impression of this rad bike, have a look at the video below. Have a look at its acceleration...
