'Sorry mate, I didn’t hear you'

Electric motorbikes are a rapidly advancing technology that is becoming more accessible and competitive. Improvements in battery performance are seeing high speed electric motorcycles capable of 60mph and beyond, making them ideal for inter-city commutes on national speed A roads.

In his presentation, Paul will discuss the increasing popularity of electric powered two wheelers, and the road safety implications relating to their use.
