I am fully unable to care about MotoE. I'm trying, but after watching the tests I care even less.

Guess I'm one of these un-environmentally friendly motherfuckers who think bikes should have a "real" engine...sorry guys

They've raced the milk floats at the TT for nearly 10 years, loads of people normally go for a piss or something to eat while they're out on track.

RECTIFY:

I have done some digging on the matter. Watched and read some insights, some more details about the bikes, their performances and so on. I feel better about it.

I can't help missing the sound of a "real" engine tho...and I just feel really weird about the fact that MotoEs don't have a gearbox...

Seems like as of now the bikes are still too heavy (due to the weight of the batteries) and several riders stated that the bikes' weakest point is always the braking...we'll see.

Chuck a battery off the back might help

The "issue" here is that wether we like it or not Electric engines are the future...both for motorsport and for our daily life.


Of course when it comes to racing it is hard as a fan. Especially considering that if it was for me I'll cut off moto3 and moto2 (especially moto2 ) and bring back the 125 and 250 2 stroke classes...

So we all know these bikes aren't going to be that great. Unless maybe you are really loving the whole electric bike thing. But for me watching the formula E series I can't get over how lame it is. Now I am hoping the Bike series here is going to be better. Maybe it's just me, but these whining, high pitch shrills of a motor are annoying at best. Hopefully it is all just because it's so brand new. Who knows? Be really great though if the racing is very close. And it should be really.
