Now Vectrix is getting ready to launch a new electric motorcycle. Called the VT-1, it's going to be the equivalent of a 125cc motorcycle with a low speed of 55 mph (88 kph), in other words, a real commuter. Proof that it's a commuter is that it will have interchangeable batteries on board, meaning you can take the batteries out and recharge them, or swap them for ones that have been charged.

The electric motorcycle will also have Vectrix's Regenerative Throttle, Battery Management System and Drive Train found on their scooters. No images are yet available, nor any more information about the VT-1.
