Lightweight Electric Motorcycle Battery

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

Electric cars are slowly beginning to dominate the gasoline vehicle market. This technology has not been widely explored in smaller applications like electric motorcycles and other recreational vehicles. The research objective is to design and prototype a battery that would be large enough to provide adequate performance and range for small recreational vehicles such as dirt bikes and quads. Expanding this field would put electric vehicle technology into more hands and further expand the application of EV propulsion.
