It looks like next year is going to be the year of the electric motorcycle and scooter, there were so many shown at Intermot 2008. Most of them came from Asia (like most thing nowadays), but a few were European.

It now a question of getting the price down, the range up and the speed up...

The first one on the list looks strange, but then most electric motorcycles look different. It's the German made eROCKIT Open link in a new window.
Though pedal powered, whatever the human powers by pedaling the 8 Kw engine multiplies by 50. So you can easily get a top speed of 80 kph (50 mph)
