You beat me to it, Hugh! I am curious about the idea of mounting the motor inside the rear wheel hub, though. That seems counter to his typical "Trilogy of Tech" philosophy of reducing unsprung weight. Since it's not a high-performance model, maybe he figures the trade-off worth it?

In any event, Zero and Energica won't feel threatened by this announcement yet. It IS nice to see they are looking at PRACTICAL motorcycles and not "Pie in the Sky" performance machines like Curtiss, Lightning, or Mugen.

Check out the company on LinkedIn and you’ll find several other former Buell/EBR employees.

I see Erik is going the way of the late Michael Cszysz; the future is in electrics. It's just a damned shame no one carried on Michael's work after his passing. That e1PC he used to dominate the Isle of Man had some VERY interesting technology in it.

Unlike Michael, though, Erik and his crew is actually looking at building a practical bike that we may all be able to afford. I like that even better than building expensive exotica.

PS: I'm secretly (well, maybe not "secretly") hoping that whatever they come out with sells two or three TIMES as many units as Harley's LiveWire (or whatever they'll end up calling it). : )

Hmmm... Abe Askenazi is working for Zero and now Erik's involved with Vanguard, along with several Elves. I expect that the E-bike rate of advancement is about to skyrocket

Nice!

Didn't know about this event. Might have to break my rules and head out for a ride this Saturday.

Alice's is going to be packed!

Hmmm, Firebolt or Thunderbolt?

Decisions decisions...

"Erik, this is the coolest place I have ever worked. I've always kicked butt in my prior jobs, being rated as exceeding expectations, but have been frustrated by how hard I had to push so to get my ideas completed. Here, I am surrounded by other engineers like me, and I have to go full speed just to keep up. I just love it".
I got to meet the guy that said that.
