Pros:
-Quite
-Easy to operate

Cons:
-Very expensive
-Heavy
-Limited range (most only go 100 miles)
-Steep depreciation
-Slow (compared to bikes with engines)
-Not as exciting as bikes with engines

Zero, Harley Livewire,

There is the Lightfighter LFR19 that is an electric race bike, the battery is just big enough to last one race; this makes it relatively light for an electric bike and can win against normal bikes.

I'm not a fan of electric bikes - this is not the same rock'n roll as before
sound - gasoline smell
