It Looks Like a Kawasaki Electric Bike Is Moving Forward

New Patent Drawings Reveal Progress It would seem that Kawasaki has an electric motorcycle it’s working on. Visordown nabbed some patent drawings that show how the bike is progressing.

Druid Motorcycles Shows Off Hybrid and Electric Bikes

It eats chrome, dulls aluminum and causes rust to flash up in weeks. So what’s the point of a polished custom if it’s just going to get eaten by the sea? Well, there’s not. That’s how Brisbane’s Pop Bang Classics came up with this, a post-apocalyptic 1971 Honda CB450 dubbed the ‘Borg’. The owner of the ‘Borg, Kenny Smith, ha...
