Will be a fine 'balancing' act, pun intended. The battery weight might be more difficult to manage than in a car.

I'm going to start watching MotoGP this year, but at least in the foreseeable future, I won't be watching any EVs racing, motorcycles or otherwise. Formula-E is just so boring.

As I posted in another thread:

People still love horse racing & derbys, even if horses aren't our primary mode of transportation anymore!
