The Spy Motorcycle – The World’s first electric motorcycle with built in solar panels, goes on sale today. The Spy Motorcycle looks straight out of a futuristic sci-fi movie, with a 125 mile range on a single charge, 40mph top speed, and six hour charging time. The electric motorcycle has built in solar panels that connect directly to the battery, allowing the owner to charge the battery by letting it sit outside in the sun.
“The average car ride is less than six miles, and the majority of those rides are just one person in the car. With gas prices rising, and most people using these giant vehicles just to run errands to the grocery store, gym, or their friend’s house, we wanted to create something that would get them there safely and without the need of gas,” Dylan Welch, CEO of Spy Motorcycles shares.
The Spy Motorcycle is the perfect mix of an e-bike, a vespa, and a Ducati. It has more power than an e-bike, but a similar ease of use. It is about the size of a vespa, making it easy to ride for men and women, particularly for people who don’t want a big loud motorcycle, and it has the sexy look of a sleek Ducati.
While there are other electric motorcycles on the market, none of them have implemented the built in solar panels for charging. The Spy Electric Motorcycle has a top speed of 40 mph because it is meant for driving around cities and for short trips to maximize safety.
Today The Spy Motorcycle will take orders for the first 100 motorcycles, with delivery estimated to take about three months.
