A Brief Survey of the Electric Motorcycle Market

Electric bikes are quickly becoming the future car of the moment; we're seeing more and more in the news every day. To that end, below are five 100% dedicated electric motorcycles (a term used loosely) either available, near-to-market, or proposed for a future market. I've excluded the Piaggio because it's a hybrid. All prices are listed according to MSRP—before any potential tax credit.
