The word


The California-based company will be in direct competition with Zero Motorcycles and Quantya, who faced off last year in a head-to-head electric motocross exhibition in Las Vegas.

The new motorcycle is the EMAX 72DS. The 72 is the voltage on the battery pack (72v), which provides 3 hours of run time, and the DS is "dual sport" meaning the bike is both off-road and road legal.

The bike has a 40Nm torque motor pushing it up to 60mph and prices start at only $9,995. The bike is slated for availablility in 2010.

And so ...

The company has three other electric vehicles in the works, including a bicycle, an ATV, and a personal watercraft.
