Mavizen TTX02, an electric superbike for the streets
Derived from the winning bike in the inaugural TTXGP on the Isle of Man in
2009, the Mavizen TTX02 is a British electric superbike that uses twin
96-volt DC motors and a 7.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.
Configured for the street or the track, the Mavizen reaches a top speed of
130 mph. It costs $30,000 to $32,000. Read more at http://lat.ms/bp9voY

My 48 Volt Electric Motorcycle
This is an all electric motorcycle that I built in my garage in late 2008.
The first eight months were spent researching components, saving money,
planning the modifications, tearing down the original bike, and finally
purchasing all of the parts. The build was completed over a 3 day period.
Battery pack rating: 2.5 KW
Top speed: 50 MPH
Range: 25 miles
4x BB EB50-12 Batteries (50 amp-hour x 12 volts)
Alltrax 4865 Motor Controller (max amperage output set to custom limit)
Etek-R Brushed DC Electric Motor
Magura 0-5k Potentiometer Throttle
25 Amp Quickcharge Charger
Electric Motorcycle Conversion - 67' Honda Dream
Just a quick recap of how I converted this 1967 honda dream (ca160) to run

1980 750 motorcycle coverted to a 48 volt Etek electric vehicle. Cost of
the used bike, $350. Cost of the eparts, batteries, wiring and safety
items, $2,700 to install and fabricate. Riding around silently, and
recharging at home, priceless!!!
Thanks to my buddies, Josh, Jeff, Doug, Nick, Bornstein for the help. Son

We are considering designing and selling electric motorcycles commercially.
However, if you are interested in building one yourself, you can find a
wealth in information on the internet. At this point, I have borrowed
ideas from no less than 10 different people for my design. Some of Maxdon
Electric innovations that you won't find in other bikes are:
1. The onboard microcontroller (described in the latest version -- see the
update video) provides torque control throttle feel and gives the rider
battery status information
2. An RC-delay precharge circuit for the main contactor
3. A unique compact layout and mounting of the electric drive system

First Ride of Sparky the Electric Bobber Motorcycle
This is the first test ride of Sparky, my Electric Powered Motorcycle back
in August '08. It's made from an aftermarket rigid frame, Harley Springer
front end, Harley wheels, an 8hp electric motor, and 5 Optima yellow-top
batteries. The bike will do 52 mph without any transmission. There is 8
feet of extension cord stored underneath one of the gas caps for the
onboard battery chargers. The only noise you hear is the chain/sprocket
noise. The bike likes 30-40mph the best which is perfect for my small town.

This all-electric motorcycle took me ~2.5 months to build. It cost $2,800
for all the parts including the motorcycle chassis.
All of the parts are available online (including the rolling chassis). See
the link below for a parts list.
It has 6 lead acid (deep cycle) batteries in series and an 18 HP electric
motor. There is a dash display that shows how much energy I'm using and
The top speed is 45 MPH with a range of ~25 to 30 miles. It has

This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered
