Electric Motion's EM 5.7 electric trials bike. I cannot help but think of all the new places I could ride that currently do not allow motorized vehicles. There is no real laws against riding these things yet, as far as I know, in places around me that currently only permit hiking, horses and mountain bikes. They are very quiet, leave almost no foot print and can run for several hours. I called the importer of this model to Canada and he told me some very interesting facts about the EM5.7 - They have a 2+ hour constant run time but since you are never really constantly on the throttle all the time they last for over 4 hour rides easily. - They can charge to full capacity with a 15 amp charger in about and hour. - They have no consumables - gas - oil etc. (a spare battery is expensive though if you wanted one $2500) cant imagine needing one though. - They have unparalleled torque and traction due to the electric motor. - They have amazing motor control and engine breaking. - They have several settings from calm to insane, just like owning several different bikes. - You can set them so that they charge themselves while coasting or descending on hills. - They weigh the same as any other trial bike and are fitting with all the same high end components as any other high end bike. - They are completely water proof, (no air intake) so I can imagine the depth of water one could ride through (maybe even completely submerged) Not sure how these things are anything else but a win win! Don't get me wrong I love the sound of my current bikes and am a serious motor head but these days with all the damn trail closures happening these things may still allow us to ride without traveling for miles to obscure riding locations that have yet to be found and closed by tree hugging sh#t heads.
