Technology and Innovation

A little over a year ago, ElectricMotorsport gutted a Yamaha R1 and fitted it with batteries
and an electric motor.

They've been working on the concept and now introduced the GPR-S equipped with lithium/Ion batteries.

Now it looks like a finished bike, no strapped on battery pack this time, with a 60 to 70 mph top speed and a 35 to 60 mile range depending on whether you’re running in power or economy mode. An onboard charger takes 4 hours to charge it back up or an optional speed charger does the trick in 1.5 hours. The price is $8000.00.
