I don't know how many of you follow moto-gp

this year they had a class for e-bikes, they produced as much power as the moto2 bikes and were able to race a full race with out worrying about battery life (45 mins hammering down full power)

imo i feel like if moto-gp is willing to pump money into r&d on electric bikes then its only a matter of time till we see more mass produced e-bikes which will slowly roll out more tech for smaller pedal bikes and moped styled e-bikes.

e-bikes definitely seem to be the future the same way everyone thought there was no way to beat a 2 stroke bike in the racing circuit and now 4 strokes are the norm in road racing and 2 stroke dirt bikes are still struggling to be competitive with the 4stroke tech

i think its a matter of time for more affordable tech to be available to the masses.

my boss got the itch to make a electric bike with what we had on hand, i helped source him a moby 50v frame, he took a car alternator and some Prius battery packs, ordered a Chinese controller and we got that thing going a solid 25. but Prius battery are straight garbage and so is using an alternator as a motor, but it worked

I think in the early stages, its all about thinking outside the box because what is available on the market is not cheap enough to make something viable
