Futuristic Motorbike: Electric GPR-S Motorcycle
Electric motorcycles and scooters have made a lot of progress lately, and one of the first plug-in motorcycles to ship will be this Electric Motorsport GPR-S, known in Southeast Asia as the E-Boxer. The good news is its charging time, letting you replenish its lithium ion batteries by plugging it into an ordinary electrical outlet for a mere 90 minutes.
An unusual feature is its tweakability, letting you adjust its speed and mileage settings by plugging it into your Windows laptop. Its makers say that when you set its speed to 60mph, they’ve been averaging a range of 40 miles, well within the average round-trip distance of the majority of commuters.
Electric Motorsport plans to build 300 of the Electric GPR-S motorcycles this year at a price of $8000, and is now accepting orders for the first 100 production units, set to ship this summer. While it’s no Harley, we like the idea of a quiet, fast electric bike, and it doesn’t look half bad, either.
