11 and 12.2 Kw
THE WORLD’S LONGEST RANGE AND FASTEST PRODUCTION ELECTRIC MOTOR SCOOTER!
Its all about the range! We wanted to build the world's longest range electric bike with full fairing weather protection for our commuter customer base....So we did.
Range at 55 mph
Range at 70 mph
Continuous Power Output
Peak Power Output
225 km/ 140 miles
129 km/ 80 miles
LRC 6 - OPTION - Same 15 kw motor, but with a smaller 6 Kwh lithium battery package. The range drops to 80 m at 55 mph and 50 m at 70 mph. Not as much range as the larger 10 kwh battery pack, but the same speed for the customer wanting a large touring style scooter without the large range.
LRC 6 MSRP $9100
LRC 12.2 Kw - Option - Same 15 kw motor, but with a 30% larger MOSFET count controller and more amps for heavier riders, steeper grades. More acceleration and speed. Same range as the 11 kw motor if driven at the same speeds.
Introduction price through March 2015 of $13,990
The LRC is a big bike with a 1680 mm / 66.1 inch wheelbase. This is 4 inches longer than a Harley Davidson Super Glide wheelbase. The goal was a big roomy bike for large people and to make the bike comfortable for that long run. BUT- it only has a 28 inch high seat height making it easy to manage for for all size riders.

High power, high visibility, brilliant LED tail light and turn signals that are visible for 45 degrees off center for enhanced safety at night. These photos are tail light and turn signal on (left photo) , tail light only, right photo -- and the brake is not on!
Brilliant LED daylight driving lights for maximum recognition.
Huge under-seat storage. Deeper in the back, the box goes under the seat latch and can handle full face helmets.
Big enough to load for a trip. (Note the small side compartments in this large box) 62 liter capacity.
More storage in the front over and under the handlebars. Four compartments in total in the front, plus under seat storage.
The battery pack on the LRC is an industry leading 10 kwh. This photo of a customer bike in construction shows the size of the battery pack. 28 battery each having 100 ah.
Unique in the world of motor scooters, the LRC uses a double rail chassis of large OD tubing to form the chassis. The rest of the world generally uses a single tube to form the side rails of the chassis, or even just one single backbone tube. The LRC then further makes the chassis rigid by making the battery box a stressed member of the chassis in effect boxing and gusseting the already very strong tube chassis. This is the secret of the ZEV handling qualities. Many assume a motor scooter cannot get down in the twisties and run with the motorcycles. It can if it is built for that ability like a ZEV.
Optional charging ports for charging phones, laptops, or running heated riding clothing in the under seat or main front compartment.
94 mph design speed rated tires, 150 mph test speed. (P Type) for maximum safety. Load capacity index of 60, 531 lbs (241 kg) each.

"I have been riding as much as possible in the fast lane around town. A lot of people around here still think scooters belong hugging the bike lanes. It blows their minds when they see you passing them in the fast lane. Yesterday a driver pulled along side of me and asked what I had in that bike - a Hemi? I just smiled and told him - just a lot of electricity; you should have seen the shock in his face - priceless".
"First of all, let me say that I absolutely love the bike. It is
fantastic. I have already had it up to eighty on the interstate."
"The scooter is awesome and drives very well. Maintenance is minimal, price per charge also minimal. My range counter shows 1160 now. These were really great trips I had."
