For a toy, I like it and if it handles like a speed triple then it will be fun.

Looks like a cleaner design than a lot, if not most of the petrol-powered bikes out there.
I don't know if that is a good thing or not.

Let's see how the final version looks.

175bhp is what they're going for. Good thing about electric is the instant torque.

Really?? I don't think I've ever given much thought to the HP of an electric bike... that's more than impressive. I just tend to think of them as something that will scoot off the line pretty quickly then run out of steam around the triple digit mark, if that.

I like the design a lot, and if it does have the equivalent of 175bhp that's going to be brutal.

My Outlander PHEV is only 70bhp on pure electric and that is pretty lively from a standing start. It can also haul it's own weight and a caravan on electric alone.

Hope they added good traction and wheelie control to the trumpet.

Just seen a post from inside bikes on Facebook. Apparently the engine weighs 10kg

20 minute charge to 80% and 120 miles from a full battery (so more like 90 miles in the real world). It's definitely getting there.

I'd like to know what type of charger it does 80% in 20 mins. I'd also like to know how fast you can charge then at home or with a 13amp plug at a hotel /cafe for instance.

Imagine if a rideout of 10 of these turned up all wanting charge :D

I think at the moment you'd be fast charging mostly at motorway services, which isn't really in the spirit of it. Think it's going to be a few years before we're fast charging at a biker cafe.

I think there is going to be a battery swap out scheme as well. I read that at the big bike manufacturers had come to and agreement on a standard battery design, including connector.

Once BP, Shell, and Esso get on board you can see them rolling out charging solutions at a pace.

I'm guessing it will be just as dependent on what type of battery as on what type of charger...??

I would still quite like an electric scooter. Might see how work goes over the coming year. It could be a useful tool to have.

Talking to mate yesterday. He has had solar panels fitted at hime this last week. When i spoke to him, it was up and running and he could see on his phone app from the office exactly how much the panels were producing, how much he was using at home and how much was being sent to the battery back up he had fitted as well. He is also looking at refitting a hot water tank as he can now heat water with spare energy.
The advent of intelligent wifi connected house hold appliances also means you can set them to use energy to suit the peaks and troughs of his own energy production and usage.

The days of being connected to a national grid could well be a thing of the past in the not too distant future.

Exactly that, we do the same thing with heat on heat networks. Sadly because I live in a 3 storey terraced house with no garden (just a small roof garden) my ratio of roof space to actual energy users is deficient.

I have our house to a point now where i control all the big usage of energy in the house and have tied it into our solar and battery system. We have enough surplus over the year now to charge electric vehicles if we had any.

Our electricity bills are now mainly the standing charges and some tax - we also use more electric than we used to as we generate it and use it when we have surplus. I'd say our actual electricity grid electric costs are £300 a year.

What is lacking now is government policy to make these systems compulsory on new homes and better grants for existing housing. Once vehicle to grid is implemented properly i would suggest very little grid energy would be needed. But that involves joined up thinking.

Not just joined up thinking,... but remove any companies or individuals from decision making who have their own personal financial interest at stake.

How much of it did you do yourself, Cookie? I think you may have talked about it before.

All of it :) Researched, purchased and fitted. Its all available now.

I did a lot of research - the key is balancing the amount of power you generate, can store and what you use. Happy to discuss with anyone who's interested. We will get all our money back in about 6 years, maybe 5 in savings alone. Plus we are energy independent - electricity is only going to get more expensive.

If i had an electric car with vehicle to grid (which i would use - not the grid) i could have our grid connection removed.
