Electric Dirt Bike anyone?

ZERO X Electric Motorcycle - Features || ZERO MOTORCYCLES

So maybe this is the future of adventure motorcycling... then again with a range of only 40 miles or 2 hours, maybe not! A silent bike would also take a bit of getting used to, but at only 68.5kg, this would be a lot of fun off road!

Still, its a nice idea and quite a sharp looking bike. There's also a street version too. Anyone ridden one of them?

I bet it won't be too long before we see some proper overland trips via electric vehicles on this forum. And that'll be cool.

I've signed up for a test ride BTW!
