Vectrix has a new competitor

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Electric Motorsport's Electric GPR-S motorbike is a new electric motorcycle with very similar specs to the Vectrix.  60-70 mph top speed, 35-60 miles per charge, and $8000 pricetag.  Personally I like the body style of the Vectrix better, but this is a pretty cool one too.

I gotta disagree with you on that one. I do like the Vectrix (and loved riding on your RMartin), but that thing is pretty mean looking. People would definitely be scratching their heads seeing something that looks like a classic street bike just whiirrrrrr past. Very cool - now how do we get a test drive?

Yeah it's just a matter of personal taste.  The Vectrix is more my style.

 

Looks like Electric Motorsport is located in Oakland, so it would be pretty easy for you to take a test ride.  Here's their GPR-S page, too.

Didn't we already talk about this one kind of?

Haha, well....at first I was really confused.  I knew I'd seen that bike before...but I couldn't remember if I'd read it on a blog or on Huddler.

 

In any case, as for whether or not it's cooler looking than the Vectrix, it's more of a racing style/traditional motorcycle look which I'm sure is appealing to some.  (Namely those who think the Vectrix is too scooter-like.)  They're both awesome.  Just...different awesome.

 

I also just emailed the folks over at Electric Motorsport to see if we could set up a Huddler test drive, so I'll keep you posted!
