Power in Flux: The Book – Kickstarter is Live!

Screen shot 2015-06-01 at 5.45.03 AM

Well, I went and done it.  I’ve been messing around with this idea for, what, about five years now?  I pulled the trigger, and I’m starting the book.  Power in Flux: The History of Electric Motorcycles.

Go to the project and have a look.

Remember the first electric motorcycle you ever saw?  I do.  In 2006, the Killacycle, a battery-powered drag bike changed the way I saw electric vehicle technology forever.  From that moment on, I was obsessed.

Electric vehicle technology began in the earliest days of cars – losing the battle with gas engines as far back as the early 1900s.  After a short-lived rekindling of interest in the latter days of the 20th century, we saw an explosion of electric vehicle technology, with motorcycles at the forefront, starting with the dawn of the 21st century.  Today, electric motorcycles compete on the same field as gas bikes – and often surpass them.

The story of electric motorcycles is the story of scientific research, technological innovation and the confluence of technologies.  …but it’s another story too.  It’s the story of how the power delivery of a high-performance, no-compromise, pure-electric drivetrain can redefine transportation, motorsports and the perception of renewable energy.  It’s the story of power in flux.

Join me on a very personal journey within this small community of innovators – from industry leaders to garage mechanics – to experience how a revolution in motorsports – as well as technology and innovation – happens.

If the spirit moves you, give it some love.

In about two weeks, look for a couple of sample chapters posted up here…  off to work!

  1. Hi Ted; I just saw the post on Terry’s page. Congrats for the book project. I will contribute for sure.
