This would be the deal breaker to me. I'd have no problem owning an electric motorcycle. I can think of plenty of disadvantages to liquid petroleum fuel and ICEs that I'd be happy to get rid of. 38 mile range though...not even close to what I'd deem acceptable. Two big speed bumps to me owning an electric at this time... First, I'd probably want at least 100 miles of range, minimum. That would give me enough of a buffer to where every ride wouldn't be full of range anxiety, or constantly mentally fixating on how much I had left. I don't necessarily want to have to plan every trip down to the smallest detail to make sure I can get home. There is a lot to be said to being able to ride where you want, when you want, with deviations from your plan, sans worrying about range. Second, I'd want to be able to recharge quickly. Right now, if I'm in a hurry to get somewhere and am low on fuel, I can be fueled up and back on the road in 5 minutes with gas. I'd be willing to accept longer fueling times with electric, but it would be a concern. If it took an hour to get back up to 100%, that would be too long. If you run flat out for 38 miles and totally deplete your battery, how long does it take you to charge back up to full? Actually, there would be a third issue I just thought of. How often do I have to replace batteries, and how expensive would that be as an ongoing expense?
