A zero emissions street legal Electric Motorcycle for light commuters and motorcycle enthusiast alike, the new GPR-S is an Electric Motorcycle with a 14.2 kilowatt electric drive system. “How about power,” you ask? The Lithium batteries allow this light weight electric motorcycle to briskly accelerate to freeway speeds.
I bought my first motorcycle at the age of 16. It was a Honda Rebel 250 cc bike that on second thought, should never have been driven at highway speeds.
I’ve had a few bikes since then, but my dream has always been a Harley. A big Harley. A big, low, loud Harley that I could throw the heels of my boots on the forward controls, lean back, and cruuuuise. But I’ve never thought about getting an EV bike until recently.
Here are the stats on the GPR-S

Motor options: The Electric GPR-S comes stock with a heavy duty PM motor called the Etek-RT. The Electric GPR-S uses an industry standard Nema C-face motor mounting system that is compatible with not only the Etek type motors but almost every 6.7 or 8″ motor on the market today. This means upgrading to an AC Induction system, or a sepex regen system is as easy as bolting in a after-market motor and controller kit.
Color options: Red Metallic, Blue Metallic, Burgandy Metallic, White, Black Metallic, Silver Metallic.
Though I am more of a Cruiser guy, this looks like one cool bike, and at about $8,000.00, it’s a steal. In the mean time, I’ll be watching for Harley to go electric.
