Electric-powered street motorcycle lets tough guys go green

There are many companies offering a look at the future of electric-powered commuting, but the Zero XU street motorcycle is one of the few that delivers a practical option you can use today.

The key component of the XU is its removable battery that can be charged away from the bike. So, in theory, if you have two such XU batteries you could simply switch them out as long as you wanted, never having to wait around for a charge. Scheduled for release later this month for around $8,000, you can see the XU in action in the video below.
