Can electric motorcycles become as big as electric cars?

    This is a good question, morton, and it is a tough one.

    I would suspect that electric motorcycles would only become popular well after electric cars become a normal sight.  This is for a couple reasons.  For one, motorcycles already get much better gas mileage than cars and are not even ridden year round in many places, this means they are a much smaller contributor to emissions, and therefore not as much importance is put on their becoming electric.  Secondly, a lot of what makes a motorcycle enjoyable is the fact that it is gas powered.  The look at me attitude goes hand in hand with loud engines and exhaust, there is even a saying that goes “loud pipes save lives.”  So the gas powered engine is deeply ingrained in the motorcycle experience and in motorcycle culture. 

    Hope this helps!
