If someone can do for motorcycles what Tesla has done for electric cars then I might have an interest.

I for one would love the silence of an electric bike.

I also love the acceleration potential of an electric

China has millions of electric scooters, particularly the city of Chongqing (population 36m approx).  Crossing the street there can be particularly scary as you have dozens of them coming at you as you step off the sidewalk and they don't make a sound, except for a polite "toot toot" on the horn to let you know they are there!!  :eek

OK for city commuting, but sadly lacking in range for the open road. :-(((
