The Winds of Change in Milan?

Zero Motorcycles, KLD Energies. Vectrix, Hyosung, CRP, KTM, Volta, Evolve Electric, Husqvarna, Parkers Brothers Choppers, Mission Motors, Gas Gas, Brammo…  Seeing a thread here?  Yep.  They’re all at the 2011 Milan International Motorcycle Show. And they all have electric bikes (or scooters) to show.

Autoblog Green has a good piece on it, and Asphalt and Rubber is posting a few snippets on the electrics, here.  You know.  When he’s not sleeping.

What’s it all mean?  It means that last year’s blossoming of electric bikes wasn’t just a splash in the pan.  It means some of the Big Boys have come out to play.  It means that there are more than two players in the game.  It’s got to be pretty exciting for some, who are on the track to sell and deliver product.  It’s got to be pretty scary for those who’ve been touting vaporware and pushing renderings.
