Recall Alert: Some Dual-Sport Zero Bikes May Have Braking Issues

EV vehicles are selling like hotcakes. They have been captivating people with their new technology, extremely fast and smooth acceleration, piles of sensors and cameras, and all other manors of sci-fi gadgetry; oh, and the whole – ya know – better for the earth part. All this new technology comes with its fair share of …

10th Annual National Drive Electric Week Begins Thursday

Every year for the last 10 years, there has been a campaign to raise the awareness of the benefits of driving electric. Of course, cars are a big part of the focus, but so are trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and even scooters. This year’s National Drive Electric Week campaign begins tomorrow, September 24th, and runs through …

Autocycles Are Here, Even If They Face Slow Public Acceptance

In an article posted yesterday, I discussed what an autocycle is. I also mentioned some of the realities autocycle manufacturers are facing. Those included the changing regulations recognizing them as a separate vehicle class from a motorcycle, a growing shift to, and acceptance of, electric motivation, and the psychological barriers for consumers who want to …

What is a BlackTea Moped?

When it comes to two-wheel motoring, a small-engine gas bike is a great way to start out, but what if you want something smaller to get you around town? Sure, there are great scooters like the Honda Ruckus and Monkey that will do the job just fine, but for those looking for a more eco-friendly …

Autocycles: Social Norms Are Holding Them Back

Autocycles are a mode of transportation that has struggled to gain popularity. While motorcycles with sidecars and trikes have their place, an autocycle for daily use is even less popular. Part of that is that there is a lack of knowledge about what an autocycle is and how it fits in our automotive culture. Today, …

Ewan McGregor Goes a Long Way Thanks to Rivian and the Harley-Davidson Livewire

Electric vehicles, whether trucks or motorcycles aren’t typically the steeds of choice for off-road adventures. Especially not ones like the Harley-Davidson LiveWire which, despite offering genuinely impressive performance, isn’t exactly an ADV bike. But if an Indian Scout Sixty can tackle Amazonian jungles, then an electric Harley should be able to as well. And movie …

You’ll Never Guess What Segway Is Making Now

Mention the name Segway, and many people will have the image of the electric, standup personal transportation device on two wheels, a scooter of sorts. Many law enforcement agencies around the world have used the electric transporters, and they were also popularized in the Paul Blart Mall Cop movie series. But, last month, we covered how that electric …

The Kuberg Ranger Is an Electric Dirt Bike Shaped Like a Scooter

Typically, electric scooters are used in urban settings, rather than for off-roading. For that, you really need something like a dirt bike, electric or otherwise. But if vintage Vespas can venture off-pavement, why not more modern machines? To be fair, the upcoming Kuberg Ranger isn’t precisely a scooter. But it is an electric dirt bike …

A Forgotten Spanish Brand Is Now Making Italian Electric Motorcycles

The influx of electric technology hasn’t only affected trucks and cars. More and more motorcycle companies, both established and new, are creating electric models. Some, like Zero and Cake, only offer electric motorcycles. And recently, another brand announced that it would, too. But while this is the first time Soriano Motori is building electric bikes, …

Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire Should’ve Learned From Zero Motorcycles

Despite taking off from the line quickly, Harley-Davidson’s electric LiveWire hasn’t really taken off in terms of sales figures. And the American motorcycle company’s future as a whole doesn’t look terribly bright. Which is a shame for electric motorcycle fans, because the LiveWire itself is a well-made bike. But in making it, Harley should’ve taken …

The Tarform Luna Electric Motorcycle Goes All in on Sustainability

Battery-powered bikes, like other EVs, have benefits besides high performance. However, although electric motorcycles do generate fewer emissions, not all of their building materials are necessarily as kind to the planet. And for many potential owners, there’s always the question of, not just battery range, but battery longevity. Brooklyn-based Tarform’s Luna, though, is trying to …
