4-wheel Motorcycles

  • 4MC: The 20 year making of the tilting 4-wheeler - This first prototype of an entirely new design of leaning four-wheeled bike not only offers an increase in safety but would will be legal for anyone holding a car driving license to use without taking an extra test – all while keeping the cheap road tax, having good fuel economy and being exempt from congestion charging. (GizMag; June 11, 2009)

Hybrid Electric Motorbikes

  • Yamaha set to launch hybrid production motorcycle for 2010 - Yamaha's Gen-Ryu uses a YZF-R6 600cc engine to turn a generator which in turn powers an electric motor to turn the rear wheel, delivering the type of performance normally associated with a much larger capacity engine, and is packaged as a futuristic cruiser with advanced aerodynamics and noise cancelling in the cockpit area.

Mopeds

  • Fuel Efficiency > Scooters / H Injection >
    Hydroxy Moped Project at University of Wisconsin-Madison - Some egineering students with faculty supervision undertook some testing of some already-efficient, 90 mpg Vespa scooters, adding an on-board electrolysis system, ducting the hydrogen into the air intake; and documented an additional 10% improvement in mileage, attributing it to catalyzing a "more complete combustion". (Perspective, UW-M; Spring 2009)

Advantages of Electric Scooters

The electric scooter might be the next alternative in city commuting. The cost to travel 10-20 miles is well below $0.2 as oppose to $2 on city bus (NYC). The electric scooters might be desirable alternative in a time when oil is becoming more and more expensive.

Somebody may argue that the scooter still use the fuel indirectly (electricity). Yes. However, as oppose to cars the total mass that have to be move (scooter and driver) might be 10 to 20 times lower then any car in production. That is significantly more economical in terms of used energy. So what the cost and profit? For example in NYC the cost of commuting by city bus for in one year is $912. The scooter cost is $350 and the recharging cost for a year is less then $73 (assuming less then 40 mile traveling distance a day). The $423 for initial investment might definitely sense for short distance commuting.
