    With a nod to Indian Motorcycles, Munro Motor introduced its beautifully styled ebike. The speed tops out at 28 mph so you won't set any speed records but the range is 60 miles with two battery packs.

Some motorcycles go fast and look pretty cool. Munro Motor‘s new ebike, the Munro 2.0, isn’t all that fast, topping out at 28 mph, as reported by TechCrunch, but if there is a powered two-wheeler on the planet that looks cooler than this Indian Motorcycles-inspired single-seater, please send photos.

Even the company name has a history. Burt Munro was a New Zealand motorcycle racer who set speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats on his own, highly modified 1920 Indian. One record still stands: In 1967 Munro had an average two-way run speed of 184.087 mph with his then 47-year-old 950cc Indian (originally 600cc), which had an original top speed of 55 mph. That record still stands for under 1,000cc motorcycles.

But enough about history. Zack Wong, Chinese-based Munro Motor’s founder has a vision of people in Asia dumping highly polluting small motorbikes in favor of electric bikes. “As people become more and more environmentally conscious, people are changing their transport options,” Wong said. “It’s foreseeable that electric vehicles will be the mainstream in the vehicle market.”

The super-cool-looking Munro 2.0 uses a Bosch electric motor in the rear wheel, powered by one or two replaceable battery packs that fit behind panels on each side of the bike’s “engine.” Each battery pack is good for up to 30 miles of range, so two batteries mean a 60-mile range overall. Each battery pack also has a USB port so you can charge your cell phone while you ride.

  1. 2017 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road Review – Toy in Waiting

    Thetruthaboutcars.com -Auto
    If you want a new midsize truck, you have four-and-a-half options. The geriatric but delightfully trucky Nissan Frontier, the recently reintroduced unibody Ridgeline, the insipid GM Colorado/Canyon twins, or the relatively fresh Toyota Tacoma. Each of these trucks has something to recommend it, but the midsize segment is not the dynamic space it once was.
