The Top 5 Electric Motorcycle Stories of 2011

These are my favorite stories of the dozens I wrote last year.

For me, the most exciting ones all revolve around Charge, the film about electric motorcycle racing in its inaugural year at the Isle of Man.

#1: My review of the film Charge (which I still think is the best current film about racing the Isle of Man)


#2: My interview with the director Mark Neale


#3: My interview of Mark Miller, whose win aboard the MotoCzysz in the 2010 TT Zero was featured in Charge.


#4: This awesome helmet cam video MotoCzysz put together


#5: Going to the Laguna Seca MotoGP as a journalist for the first time.


In 2012 I’ll be covering the TT Zero race at Isle of Man live, which will be a historic event. It’s very likely one of the racers will “break the ton” (average over 100mph on the ~35 mile course). Not only will they get the distinction of making a record it took gas bikes decades to make, the winner will also go home with £10,000!

Susanna is passionate about anything fast and electric. As long as it's only got two wheels. She covers electric motorcycle racing events, test rides electric motorcycles, and interviews industry leaders. Occasionally she deigns to cover automobile events in Los Angeles for us as well. However, she dreams of a day when Los Angeles' streets resemble the two-wheeled paradise she discovered living in Barcelona and will not rest until she's converted the masses to two-wheeled bliss.
