I've got quite a few friends with motorcycles (I prefer four wheels, thank you very much). All of them share the same need for speed, so when I try to talk to them about electric motorcycles they stop listening. The truth is though, electric motorcycles are getting better by the day, and the Killacycle is just one example of how fast these bad boys can go.
One of the early contenders in the mass-market electric motorcycle arena is Brammo. They just announced an all-new motorcycle which has two things many motorcyclists are looking for; more speed and longer range.
