Enertia Electric Motorbike – urban commuter bike for the green scene

Enertiabike

The Enertia Electric Motorbike may look a little strange but it’s a step in the right direction, no doubt. Top speed of around 50 mph, a 40 mph range and a 3 hour charge time make it an interesting alternative to electric bicycles and cars. The price of $11,995.00 however is a little too expensive to justify it as a weekend runabout, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

 The Enertia uses six Lithium Phosphate battery modules built by Valence Technologies, Inc. in Austin, Texas. Representing the latest in battery technology, this battery chemistry provides both an amazing life cycle and inherent safety not found in other Lithium-Ion batteries. These six individual modules are in constant communication with each other and the Battery Management System (BMS), which serves a “big brother” function making sure all the battery levels and temperatures are in check.
