The Sinecycle Is A Chopper For Environmentalists
With electric cars fast becoming an accepted mode of transportation, other electric vehicles companies are sprouting up all over the globe. Many of these startup companies aren’t building cars, rather building fully electric motorcycles. Most of these electric motorcycles though, don’t exactly look all that tough. Instead, they look like something out of The Jetsons, which isn’t necessarily bad. Nevertheless, there’s something definitely missing with these motorcycles. A bruiser nature you just can’t get with plastic and carbon fiber. That’s where the SineCycle comes into play. RELATED: Check Out Huge MOTO's CBR Black Here
According to an interview by the BBC’s Autos Team with Bruno Forcella, the builder of this beautiful motorcycle, the former electrical engineer wanted something that was simple, but also badass. And rather than delving into the highly technical and extremely costly world of sport bikes and dual-sports, Forcella is aiming to convert the chopper and bobber crowd with this, an electric chopper called the SineCycle.
Using a 2.8 kWh motor from Zero Motorcycles, and a hardtail frame from Cleveland Cycleworks, the custom electric chopper gives a decisively different presence compared to Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire concept. Forcella states that the SineCycle is able to hit 75 miles per hour, and has a range of about 35 miles. For now.

Currently, the SineCycle is just a one-off creation, but according to Forcella, he was able to build the entire motorcycle using just off-the-rack parts and a little bit of ingenuity. That means, with a little bit of money, and some tools, you too could have yourself a fully electric chopper. That is, until Forcella decides to build more of these awesome bikes.
