…and I got to use one of my favorite photos from my misspent youth. Here’re the linkies:
Electric Motorcycle Primer “InsideEVs Style” – Part 1: The Ride …where in we talk about why we’re doing this in the first place. Because riding electric motorcycles is awesome.
Electric Motorcycle Primer “InsideEVs Style” – Part 2: The Drivetrain The bits and pieces, and how they’re different, but also how they’re the same as your gas bike.
Electric Motorcycle Primer “InsideEVs Style” – Part 3: Battery Care and Handling (the BMS) How a lithium battery pack is different than any battery you’ve ever owned.
Electric Motorcycle Primer “InsideEVs Style” – Part 4: The Rest … the other funny stuff about an electric bike.
Electric Motorcycle Primer “InsideEVs Style” – Part 5: Reading the Specs Wrapping up, using what we’ve learned by reading the spec sheets (and actually knowing what they mean).
I’ve been getting some really awesome feedback:
We all read a lot. This is the finest articulation of the electric ride I have ever read. Just outstanding….
I’m forwarding this SOOOO many people… It’s the first thing I’ve seen that explains *everything* to someone that’s not an “EV person”
This might be the finest piece of journalism I have ever read describing the electric ride.
Always dead on with plain comprehensive explanation.
…and my fave:
This has been a great series. Very fortunate to have Ted, an actual motorcyclist with a gasoline engine background, write the article instead of one of the generic EV staff. The paradigm shift among motorcycles is just as relevant as in mainstream vehicles.
