Unless you want to ride more than 120 miles ( round trip) from your house.If I'm going to change for HP and Torque, what you are suggesting is not enough. In just a few years, e-bikes with more power and torque than you suggest will have enough range for a spirited 120 mile ride loop from my house. That will be my next bike. Better than DCT for sure. Little to no maintenance. Plenty of power and torque.
I would have no issue with riding an electric bike, IF, range the goes up, the charging becomes fast and convenient, and the price comes down. I've test ridden a Zero S. But im not buying an electric bike that costs twice as much as an ICE bike, goes 120 miles round trip before coming to a stop dead, and requires overnight to charge once you have it towed back home...
Just read an article tonight on the Zero SR in Road Runner Magazine. Nice bike as electrics go. But not for $18K base for 120 miles of riding (apparently you can pay another $2k and download an additional 21 more miles range if I read it right...its kind of confusing ....they are starting to do a pay for play thing, where you buy a base bike then purchase additional range and power as needed/wanted thru an app on your phone and range and power are EXPENSIVE, or you can buy all the range and power up front by buying the premium model for $22K. Anyhow I'll be 72 next month and would be real suprised if the electrics " catch up" before I'm worm bait. Shame really. Not having to pay for gas would be nice. Then again I can buy a lot of of gas for $18 - $22k and ride as far from home as I want. Just being realistic.
I know 670cc has one, but I have to assume that he puts a lot more miles on his ICE bikes and that the electric bike is really more of a novelty for him. At any rate if he really wants to go anywhere, and not just play locally, at least at this point in time, he is forced to own multiple bikes, and let the electric sit in the garage. I have 2 trips coming up soon, one to Rhode Island via the east coast from Virginia with 2 buddies, and the other a trip to North Dakota via Wisconsin and Minnesota with 2 buddies and at this point I dont think either trip would be feasable in any way on an electric bike, and may not be for another decade or two.
