Calling itself “the Tesla of motorcycles”, European bike maker Energica launched the final production version of its Eva street bike at EICMA 2015.
We don’t have much to go on, but the pre-EICMA reveal of the eRR electric motorcycle makes one thing clear: BMW motorrad wants in on the EV act.
The automotive world has massive, industry-defining press events at Geneva, Detroit, and Tokyo every year, and every year these shows see the debuts of jaw-dropping concept cars. For motorcycles, however, there is really only EICMA, and EICMA is awesome. The new/future bikes are below, the one-off customs are over here. For 2014, the 100th anniversary […]

Vespa parent company Piaggio believes its experience with CVT transmissions will give it the edge in developing a new line of electric bicycles.
A few weeks ago, Yamaha rolled out a fully electric motorcycle “ecosystem” that could, in theory, take a motorcycle rider “from the cradle to the grave” without burning a single drop of oil. Among the scooters, pee-wees, and dirtbikes, however, there was one critical question that Yamaha had to answer before said ecosystem could really […]
Yamaha announced a number of new “concept” electric motorcycles at this year’s EICMA show- but what’s decidedly more important is this: Yamaha has created a fully electric motorcycle “ecosystem” that takes its customers from the cradle to the grave without burning a single drop of oil or gas. Hot damn! Ever since Apple conquered the […]
Matra’s innovative, battery-swapping line of pedal-electric bicycles continues to expand throughout Europe. If this latest prototype is any indication, the next phase of Matra’s expansion will see the company enter the commercial delivery market. Matra sold over 5000 electric bikes last year, but hopes to expand its business with “pure” (read: non-pedal) scooters that include […]
We’ve covered BMW’s new maxi-scooters since they were drawings, on through the prototype stage, and now – finally! – they’re in production, coming to a BMW dealer near you early next year. It’s no wonder we’re excited about the new BMW maxis. They’re fast, they’re refined, and – offering 50+ mpg fuel economy and more […]
What makes a scooter a scooter? What makes a motorcycle a motorcycle? When you have bikes like Honda’s DN-01 – with a 100+ mph top speed, automatic transmission, and big “v twin” engine – it’s tough to tell. True to its category-busting form once again, Honda is blurring the scooter/motorcycle line even more at this […]
This week was EICMA, the motorcycle equivalent of the Tokyo, Geneva, and Detroit Auto Shows all rolled into one – and this little beauty was the star of the show. Officially, it’s called the Vespa 46, but they could have glued chrome badges reading “La Bella Macchina” to the side of the little blue 2-wheeler […]
Skyrich claims their Lithium Ion battery lasts up to 5 times longer than lead acid batteries. I’m hoping to report the same. For now, I can simply say it was very easy to install, and starts very eagerly, even with the fan running. With 5 times the longevity at only 3 times the price, it’s a bargain.
EICMA is one of the world’s largest motorcycle trade shows. Held in Milan each fall, motorcycle manufacturers release new models either here or at EICMA’s competitor, Intermot. The two shows compete for exclusives, so while TTXGP and Mavizen were only present at Intermot, Brammo was present at EICMA. Brammo was in the American Pavilion around the corner from my client ScooterGirls and a short walk from the more famous American brand, Harley Davidson. However, taking over a larger corner of the hall than last year was “The Green Planet” which was dominated by electric-assisted bicycles and full electric scooters.
