Electric and expensive: Enertia to go on sale early next year

The Enertia is clean and green, but will cost US$12,000 when it goes on sale next year!

For those who like their bikes clean, green and environment-friendly, you now have the Enertia electric motorcycle to look forward to. Engineered by Brammo, the bike boasts of a carbonfibre monocoque chassis, which houses the six Lithium-Phosphate batteries that power the Enertia’s electric motor.

The Enertia has performance comparable to most conventional scooters. It sprints from zero to 50km/h in about 3.8 seconds and is capable of hitting a top speed of 80km/h. It’ll also do 70km on a single charge, which should take care of most city commutes. And yes, the batteries will last for more than 600 charge cycles…

The Enertia will cost US$12,000 and above when it goes on sale in early-2008 and that makes it quite expensive. More details on the Enertia website here.
