We have discussed the pros and cons of electric vehicles on this blog in the past. Here is a really cool new vehicle: it is electric and when stopped and at slow speeds is the same size as a Segway but as it speeds up it unfolds and expands into full size motorcycle. It is described as “Motorcycle that changes like a ‘Transformer.'”
Electric motorcycles are not new and fans of them will proudly tell you that they can get the equivalent of over 100 miles per gallon (this guy says 112 and shows his math) – an electric motorcycle manufacturer supplies this little gas and carbon calculator.
But of course it is still a motorcycle – exposing a rider to the open road at high speeds. So none of my kids are ever allowed to ride or own one !
