We've been seeing many electric motorcycles coming to the market over the last 5 years. The first ones were off road motorcycles, followed by dual sport and then naked road motorcycles. Now we're seeing the next motorcycle category going electric, cruisers.

Dutch Orphiro Open link in a new window is a nice looking cruiser that has recently been introduced to the local press. Made in The Netherlands, you're not going to be able to cross the country to go to Sturgis with it, but you'll be able to ride some 100 kilometers before you need to recharge the 5 batteries.

Top speed is nothing close to the Ducati Diavel, with a maximum speed of 120 kph, and with a price of €49,000, excluding sales tax, you'll not find one in a garage close to you, unless you live in Beverly Hills.

But as electric motorcycles go, the bike looks good. In fact, if you think about it, cruisers should make excellent electric motorcycles. Low speeds, no need for enormous riding range, a cruiser is a great electric bike. They do not plan to mass produce the bike, but are planning to custom make them for companies for promotional activities.
