It would only make sense for Elon Musk’s Tesla to build an electric motorcycle, as they have dominated with their Model 3 / S / X and soon, the Cybertruck. What could the two-wheeled bike look like? Well, automotive designer James Gawley provides us with an idea. Rather than a traditional speedometer and gauges, this one would have a giant touchscreen in their place.
Electric-powered motorcycles of the same size and weight of their gasoline counterparts offer similar performance. In a past Road & Track issue, their editors determined that a high-end electric motorcycle was faster and even better handling than any conventionally powered bike. How so? these electric bikes have better 0-60 mph acceleration, thanks to the ability to develop full torque immediately, and since they don’t have a clutch, clutch the torque is available instantly.
