Electric motorcycle - what reaction does that get? Maybe a good idea, but just not there yet? Style, range, and price are just some of the drawbacks of the current offerings. What if your electric motorcycle had a range of 100 miles, could go from 0 to 60 in 4.7 seconds and had the look of a pretty cool cruiser? The Brutus 2 is still in prototype, but looks very promising. Watch video
Overall motorcycle customer satisfaction has increased notably from 2010, according to a new study by J.D Powers and Associates. The improvement was driven by marked improvements in the sales experience, the products, and cost of ownership.

The Dead Red Bill is Law! Effective Jan. 1 motorcycle riders in Illinois may treat extended red lights or left-turn arrows as four-way stops except for lights controlled by a timer. The law does not specifiy how long the rider must wait before proceeding through the intersection but obviously there must be a clear path. Pending is Senate Bill 2528, which would require riders to wait 120 seconds before proceeding through a clear intersection. Excluded are municipalities with populations of 2 million and over. Now where could that be?
