eBIKES: Fascinating interview with Brammo founder on the past and future of electric motorcycles

http://t.co/pGnAzcNWRu
Jean Christophe Hutin's insight:

Brammo was hoping to distribute its bikes through Best Buy stores, but that deal didn’t work out. “In America, there are twenty to thirty million motorcycle riders, and to get in front of them, most people put bikes in motorcycle stores, and that’s a limited number of visits and impressions. I still believe it was a great idea, we ended up selling a lot of bikes in the few stores that we were in.

Chief Hall likes that his officers don’t need helmet-mounted communications gear to hear their portable radio, as they would with a conventional motorcycle.

“We just turn up the radio and use it with the speaker or an ear bud,” he said. “If my cell phone rings, I just stop and answer.”

Will the US ever embrace electric motorcycles?

Glenn Dietrich, the owner of Cycle World in Houma, used to carry electric motorcycles manufactured by Zero, one of the emerging industry's leading companies.
Jean Christophe Hutin's insight:

The biggest U.S. markets for Brammo bikes are also the biggest for their gas-powered competitors: California, Texas, Florida and New York. With lesser brand recognition than Harley-Davidson or Honda, companies like Brammo and Zero depend heavily on local dealers like Dietrich.

ZERO motorcycles: the sound of silence | pepijn vloemans

ZERO motorcycles: the sound of silence | pepijn vloemans | Electric Motorcycle | Scoop.it
At the company headquarters I had the chance to interview Jay Friedland, a long time electric car advocate and vice president of ZERO motorcycles – a leading electric motorbike company – for my new book.
Jean Christophe Hutin's insight:

"Noise enthusiasts

Think about noise and exhaust fumes from cars and motorbikes and scooters. We accept it, because we’ve never been exposed to a world without it. I’ve owned and ridden a 1991-built, four stroke, 750cc Honda Nighthawk for the past eight years and I’ve never really thought about the noise. This has changed. Just as I’d never want to go back to a world where smoking is the norm, I now feel like I’ve been to the electric future – and want to get there as fast as possible. Perhaps, just as we did with smoking, we’ll come to think of combustion engines as inappropriate. This doesn’t mean they’ll be completely banned however. Noise enthusiasts will probably cling to their Harley’s and Ferrari’s – and I don’t blame them – but they will be banned to the perimeters of civilization. And perhaps, just as with smoking, the first people who quit may not be so cool. I’ll take that risk: I’m selling my Honda."
