.................... But then, he didn't have to buy it - and they are not cheap!!  ;)



Yes they are expensive, but then, when you take into account, the cost of 'fuel' compared to petrol, and then the reduced servicing costs, especially if you happen to be someone that gets their bike serviced at a garage, then that extra cost of the bike starts to even up pretty quickly.

Also, there are more manufacturers coming along as well, including Evoke, appreciably cheaper, but, a shorter range. These should be on sale mid to late spring here in the UK

Well I just had to open my mouth, they increased the prices today noon in a surprise buttsecks matter, no warning whatsoever!

Anyways, that electric bike doesn't sound so practical to me tbh, but it would work for someone just using it to commute, as most people don't commute 100 miles a day, and if they do they could charge it while at work, until a friendly loving co-worker disconnects your charger one day!

Bikes don't use that much fuel anyway so why bother unless you are forced to by the upcoming regulations. You'll have the used market for a long time too.

True, however, as petrol & diesel vehicles stop being sold, then, through natural wastage, it will inevitably become uneconomical for petrol stations to continue to sell petrol & diesel, in fact, as vehicles become capable of being charged at home, or at work, alot of petrol stations won't even be able to morph into electric charging stations !!. In a way, what will happen will be something similar to what happened to 4 star fuel, where it eventually became uneconomic to provide it at the pump. Over time, petrol & diesel vehicles, whilst still allowed on the road, will become a niche market. That's of course, if human driven/ridden vehicles are still permitted to use roads !! It obviously won't happen over night, but I'd say within 10 years after the ban on new sales, there will be barely any petrol or diesel powered vehicles still on the road, and with demand so low, you're going to need specialist outlets to get hold of a supply of fuel, as it will no longer be mainstream !!

Personally I'm looking forward to getting an electric bike, once either work puts in charging stations, or, the range at motorway speeds exceeds 150 miles, which is just a little more than my round trip commute to work.

Actually my car has better fuel economy, I can get upto 70mpg,  than my ST7 & CF650, so, really as it stands, it would be cheaper for me to use the car to work than either the ST7 or CF650, providing I don't end up sitting in traffic wasting fuel, or having to use the toll road to avoid the worst of the traffic.

I'm thinking E85 will become more prominent. If the current trend toward smaller, more highly stressed, turbocharged engines continues. With that said, the popularity of LS powered sedans definitely showed that there was a market for big V8s

The Americans won't want to loose their golden goose (the petrodollar) without a fight .
The petrodollar is the only thing keeping the good old USA afloat .
They could always start the "electric dollar" I suppose  :o

It's largely not upto the good old usa ..

Germany banning the sale of petrol & diesel vehicles from 2030, UK & France from 2040, no doubt there are other countries doing similar, I haven't looked,  or will be doing something similar. If you look at the car manufacturers, most of the major ones will have electric equivalents of their current ranges, very shortly, with Volvo, VW and Jaguar at least already going down this route. The i.c.e powered vehicles are now an endangered species !!

Had a bit of time to kill today, and dropped into some bike shops for a look around.  Had a quick chat with the (ex?)Hyosung dealer - he has none in stock, but thought he could get some 'old stock' if somebody wanted one.

His feeling was that Hyosung are struggling to sort out compliance with Euro 4, and the likely effect on cost making them too expensive.

So his showroom is full of various Chinese manufactured bikes - Sinnis, Lexmoto, Mutt, Bullit, Hanway, Keeway plus a few KTM, Scomadi (Lambretta copy) scooters and the reborn FB Mondial bikes.  Many of those brands are imported by MotoGB.....the Hyosung importer!
