Right now, we don’t see hydrogen-powered motorcycles going anywhere much. Well, not for another decade at least. With no hydrogen infrastructure in place, lithium-ion battery-powered bikes – which can be charged at any normal household electricity outlet – seem to be the better bet for now. Still, hydrogen-powered concept bikes like the ENV are reasonably interesting – they provide a somewhat scary glimpse at the future of motorcycling.
Intelligent Energy claim they’re working on type approval for the ENV in Europe, after which they’ll sell/lease the bike to ‘carefully selected’ customers. If this is the future of motorcycling… we’d really much rather stay in the present!!
