It is not cheap, but it could be a lot worse.
What with electric cars still being very much a niche product, it isn't terribly surprising that electric motorcycles haven't captured the mainstream just yet. But that's not to say that there aren't good ones out there. In fact some of them are pretty damn impressive. Meet the Lightning LS-218, a motorcycle which is not only fast for an electric bike, but also just plain fast. And it has the land speed record to prove it.
It pretty much just looks like a normal bike though, save for the absence of a tailpipe, but you'd probably notice how eerily quiet it is.
