The new Victory Empulse. Yes it is electric, and it isn't really a surprise.

Downloaded these pictures from HotBike just before the page was taken down. Seems like they posted it a little too soon:

Why a tachometer on an e-bike?

I wonder what the price point will be and what the range will be.

Most e-bikes don't have a clutch either, but I see that they have a gear shift lever so I guess a tach is in order for correct shift points since you can't hear an electric motor's rpms rise. Really surprised to see it have a gearbox as that means efficiency loss.

i guess when you ride you have to account for the distance to get back home in order to charge?

It has gears, and you drive it just like a regular bike.

Being an electrician for 43 years, I want in on wiring charging stations at homes and gathering places. Mount a wind turbine powered generator to the bike for that Mad Max perpetual motion machine.
