An electric flat tracker rises from the ashes of Alta

Elegant is not often a word used to describe electric bikes, but this pared-down tracker is both petite and beautiful. It’s from a new shop called Blatant Moto, based in the Dogpatch area of San Francisco—and the builders obviously know what they are doing. “We’re three ex-Alta employees,” says designer and co-founder John McInnis. “The same group that put together the Crapshoot, an Alta-powered drag bike.” That explains the pro level of thinking and finishing on this build, nicknamed ‘Th...

A new age of customizing: Fuller Moto’s Majestic ‘2029’

One of the most genre-smashing motorcycles of all time is the 1929 Majestic. It looked like nothing else on earth—a streamlined Art Deco torpedo, with hub-centered steering and sliding pillar suspension. Ninety years later, the French masterpiece is still casting its spell over custom builders. Bryan Fuller has just fallen under the influence, and created an extraordinary homage called 2029. The build is Fuller’s response to the unprecedented levels of change the moto industry is experienc...

Racer-X: Testing the limits of electric motorcycle design

Electric motorcycles tend to look strangely conventional. Even the oddball $60,000 Curtiss Zeus has a ‘tank’ and a seat where you’d expect them to be. So although the powertrains are revolutionary, the designs tend to be evolutionary. And we’ve often wondered why. Perhaps motorcyclists are just too conservative? Mark Atkinson, the bike builder and machinist who built the incredible BMW ‘Alpha’ Landspeeder, has pondered this question too. And he’s just created this extreme e-bike to find ou...

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. In short, Kawasaki’s getting closer. There are two drawings that show some interesting things about the bike. The first shows a mostly complete motorcycle, or rather a simple drawing of one. It’s all there, what looks like a battery and electric motor, handlebars, etc. This suggests Kawasaki at least has a design...

Huge Moto x Zero: An electrifying new design language?

The One Moto Show is a cornucopia of analog delights, gleaming with metalflake and raw, hand-beaten bodywork. But there was an interloper lurking amongst the chrome and carburetors: this futuristic Zero from Huge Moto of San Francisco. As soon as the Zero was revealed, it starting popping up everywhere on social media. So we dropped a line to Huge Moto’s boss, Bill Webb, to get the story on this surprise hit—and the very 21st century design process. “Zero reached out to us a couple years ...

DeBolex gives the Energica Eva a classic spin

A week ago , Ducati’s lead designer told Digital Trends that “Electrification will change bike design more than it will change car design.” We’re not so sure of that. Motorcyclists are an inherently conservative bunch—especially older folks with the cash to splash on a new toy. We’d be happy if future electric motorcycles followed the lead of this amazing Energica, remodeled by England’s deBolex Engineering. The project was kickstarted by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, the director of the documen...

Lightning Motorcycles Teases Strike’s Riding Position

It’s a Bit More Upright If you were worried that the Lightning Motorcycles Strike was going to have the same super-hunched riding position that the superbike has, then you can breathe easy. It will have a more upright riding position than the company’s LS-218. This is good news. While the LS-218’s riding position is right for that particular bike, the mainstream Strike that Lightning Motorcycles will put out should be a little more relaxed so it can be used as an everyday bike. We’re not talkin...

Are These Onyx Electric Mopeds the Perfect Urban Commuter Bikes?

Pedals and Electric Power Mopeds were popular machines in the 1970s and 80s, but over time the bicycle/motorcycle bike fell out of style. Now, they’re quite uncommon. You see either scooters or motorcycles, but the pedal moped is a rarity on the road. That may change in the future thanks to ONYX Motorbikes. ONYX Motorbikes got its start where many good ideas go, Indigogo. After raising about $1 million, Tim Seward, the founder of the company, and his team have delivered on some truly attractive...

Lightning Motorcycles Teases Its Second Model, the Lightning Strike

A New Electric Motorcycle for the Masses While the LS-218 electric motorcycle from Lighting Motorcycles is a high-dollar item designed for high-speed racing, the company’s second bike should be more pedestrian. The company just released a teaser for its new motorcycle called the Lighting Strike.  Lightning Motorcycles claims its new bike will “shock the industry in every dimension.” It shared only a few stats for the motorcycle and didn’t give us a full look just a couple of headlights.

Enjoy the Silence: A KTM electric bike built for Schuberth

Electric motorcycles are gathering momentum, whether we like it or not. And customizers are slowly starting to discover the potential of e-bikes—which makes our job here way more interesting. But there’s one shop we’d never have pegged as early adopters: Urban Motor of Berlin. Peter Dannenberg and his crew have made a name for themselves building classy petrol-driven machines, using old school techniques. So this battery-operated whippet based on the KTM Freeride E is a literal volte-face. ...

When Tesla Tries Two Wheels

Tesla motors have been the toy of affluent early adapters but the release of the model 3 marks a new chapter in accessibility. The next step following the upcoming entry level electric just might be an e-bike! This Tesla motorcycle concept by designer Antonio Serrano sheds light on what we might expect should the brand ever attempt 2 wheels.
