Johammer Electric Motorcycle
The new futuristic and ergonomic Johammer Electric motorcycle called the J1 is pretty cool.
The woman rider on the bubbly-future-looking electric motorbike featured on the Silodrome website definitely caught my eye! The Johammer Electric Motorcycle has a pretty impressive range of 125 miles (200km), uses center hub steering, and regenerative braking. (Regenerative braking is utilized in many electric cars these days, the engine basically assists in braking while also charging the battery. You can read more about it on How Stuff Works, and Tesla Motors.
Nope, not cheap… the full model (12.7 kWh) with longer distance as mentioned above will be about $34,500 (25,000 euros).
