The word

Roehr eSuperbike and eSupersport

The maker of the nation's fastest and most powerful American-production sportbike, the 180hp 1250sc, is now getting into the electric motorcycle arena.

The eSupersport is along Roehr's line at 95hp and capable of 210ft-lb of torque right off the line. The eSupersport is an entry-level machine, however, with a more sedate 48hp and 105ft-lb of torque.

Both bikes feature high-energy lithium-ion battery packs at 10kWh and 6kWh respectively. The top speed on both bikes is 100mph.

Pricing is not yet announced, but sales begin this spring.

And so ...

Great to see another motorcycle manufacturer in the U.S. getting into the electric game.
