Hi to all the members of silver wing Forum that i'm a proud to  be a member of .

There is a topic i would like to share it with you guys.

as we all know the electric engins are the future for cars , motorcycles , scooters ,trains ......etc

Therefore i was wounding if one day will see an electric silver wing with 250 miles per charge and it's acceleration from 0 to 60 in 2 seconds with self balancing, air bag, traction control, 17 inch wheels, electric adaptive suspension, self driving, and lots of storage so you can have 55 liters under seat, on the right side and on the left side as well like side cases.

You’ve described Akira’s bike with side cases.

So why not some enterprising lad bodge together something using Toyota Prius drive wheels...

If you want fast and electric go for the one of a kind Volkswagen I.D.R it beat the Pike Peak record by a full 16 seconds. Zero to 60, 2 seconds top speed ? well over 200 mph. Problem Smile 16 miles range on it's current battery set up.

Interesting idea but not sure electric IS the wave of the future. My reading shows the cost of materials of producing electric vehicles is becoming prohibitive. And scarce. We shall see. I know from people that own Prius' that replacing the battery pack is comparable to replacing a motor in most gas powered vehicles price-wise.

Electric is feasible in urban areas perhaps, but here in the West the distances are great so not sure it would be practical.

Might be a fun experiment for someone, just not ME tongue

The big drawback isn't so much the range as it is the " refuel " time and yes the West does have miles and miles of nothing but miles SmileSmile

Akira’s bike is a bike that its height from the ground is low , I am talking about a silver wing with adaptive suspension that you can choose between the types of rides you like , so you can choose between asphalt ride or off road ride so the adaptive suspension will give the height and the stiffness that is suitable for off road ride, or you can choose asphalt road with different modes like sport , comfort .... etc,

it really going to be the perfect scooter to ride

The push of a button on the cockpit console would change all that. 

That’d be similar to already existing adaptive suspension (magnetic fluid) technology.

Ramy, good description of what many of us would like. It may not be a SilverWing, but it's coming. Most big MC companies already have prototypes and some road-ready electrics in showrooms.
Other companies are competing well. Ranges and charge times will improve.

Not for all tastes, but appropriate to fit many needs:

Exactly correct. Everybody advertising Zero emission vehicles not really!!!
Heavy metals in battery. Recycling and production costs. Where dose the electricity come from to recharge battery come from? Solar panels low output on cloudy days. Wind turbines don't turn if no wind. All sounds great on paper bit if the power goes out out at your house affraid A nice transition with proper back up works.

Well, heck, with a top speed of over 200 mph, when it ran out of juice it could coast for another 75 miles or so. Piece of Cake... chickendance
