There are a lot of advantages and disadvantages of electric motorcycles. The advantages are mostly in the incredible torque they generate, but also the very low cost of operating one. Also, they are a lot more ecological than the gasoline powered ones. But on the downside, they don't really conduct themselves like a "normal" motorcycle. They don't have gears, so no clutch.

Electric motorcycle manufacturer Brammo Open link in a new window have just released a motorcycle that has 6 gears. Using a technology called IET (Integrated Electric Transmission), you'll be able to determine which gear, and when to change, just like on a normal motorcycle. It gives the rider more control, not letting a computer decide.
