Default Tesla Model M Motorcycle Concept

This would be nice.

From the article:
Independent and talented designer Jans Slapins from London has presented an interesting virtual project for a Tesla electric motorcycle.

Looks a little 'tall' ? in the middle , but first design usually doesn't become final product. Wouldn't be a bad "around town ride". But IMO the lack of an 'engine" would be something I'd miss after a while ?

IF I could get this gatlin strapped to the side, I'll take it. I think this would be an extra 10K.
Chump change for some of you guys... huh?

I'm sure this is exactly what LORIDER needs in Memphis.

I'd be all over a tesla motorcycle. They've done amazing things for the electric car and if they were able to port that tech over to a bike I'm sure it would be fantastic (at least compared to current offerings). However, the thing in that picture is definitely up there on the list of ugliest bikes I will NEVER be caught dead on.

Me thinks these battery bike makes are missing a target market, producing (or thinking of producing) sporties or standards, when a cruiser format would be more fitting to an electric motorcycle. Why? Cuz of these reasons: They are more expensive than gas powered versions and an older demographic can afford then better; That older demographic prefers a cruiser style; An electric is better suited for cruising, short hop and errand duty.
