Post 7 F-A-S-T electric motorcycles rattling the USA market in 2014

Key notes for them - emissions-free and lack of roar sound. Not my cup of tea, but the concept may be a whole new game changer in the near future

1. Brutus V2 Rocket
Capable of 130 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque with a weight of 545 pounds, the V2 Rocket won the Electric Modified Bike race at Pike’s Peak in 2014 with a time of 12:20.448, which made an impression on the racing and motorcycle world. A street-legal version of the V2 Rocket has a preliminary price of $26,490.

2. Harley Davidson LiveWire bike
The release of 500cc and 750cc bikes in the 2015 Harley line indicates the company is open to changing its focus. Harley’s new Street line features a younger, more urban and diverse crowd than one considered inclined to ride a Harley.

3. Zero SR

Capable of sprinting 0-60 in 3.3 seconds with 67 hp and 106 lb-ft of torque, the SR’s chief innovation may be its affordability ($16,995) combined with range (150 miles) and its speed capabilities (near 100 mph)

4. Lito Sora
Capable of charging from 0-60 in 4.0 seconds and a top speed of 118 mph, the Lito Sora also became an innovator for its electrical seat that can switch between “custom” and “sport” positions while you ride.

5. Energica EGO
This Italian electric bike is capable of 134 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque with a 0-60 time of just 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 150 mph.

6. Mission R
Capable of sprinting 0-60 mph in 3.0 seconds, a top speed of 140 mph, and 170 miles of city range, the Mission R certainly covers performance and range like a Tesla with a base price of $32,499

7. Lightning LS-218
The “218″ in the name refers to the 218-mph mark the bike hit at Pike’s Peak in 2013. Capable of 200 hp and 168 lb-ft of torque at a wet weight of just 495 pounds, it’s easy to see how the Lightning could reach its stunning top speed and is priced at $38,888.
