Although we are not particularily interested in alternative engines and energy in bikes, this should not remain without response. Electric energy in bikes is not what it used to be anymore. It is solid competitor for the gasoline. It may have not the best sound, it may not have the best style building qualities, hovewer, it is a viable option these days. Lightning LS-218 proved this! Such a marvellous high speed capacity, that is something one would not expect from electric engines. At the Quail Motorsport Gathering in California this year Lightning Motorcycles introduced this pretty fast bike for retail. It has over two hundred horsepower engine and weights over two hundred kilos. And this costs less then 40 thousand bucks? That is an offer to be considered…
