Lately we are talking a lot about electric motorcycles, but let’s be honest, they still have a long way to go. They may be the future, but today they offer us quite a bit compared to the old technology of combustion engines. Neither the benefits, nor the autonomy, nor the emotions that produce us are comparable.
Everything is coming, and it seems that in Vigo have made an extremely attractive, or laughing, we do not know how to take it. At the outset, its high-density batteries of 21 kWh achieve a useful autonomy of 640 km, leaving totally humiliated to the rest of electric that we know already many cars of zero emissions, but it attends because there are still more.
Promising numbers for a future bike
Vigo assures that the power of his machine would rise to 120 hp with which he would be able to reach 100 km / h from standing in only 3.2 seconds and mark a top speed of 290 km / h. These numbers could put Vigo at the level of any current Superbike and at a much lower price.
Yes effectively. For what you are worth a Yamaha YZF-R1, you could buy two Vigo, since they have announced a price of 9300 dollars, with the additional option to make you supporter of the brand through its website obtaining a reduction in the Price, which would stay at 6960 dollars.

The company has not offered more information, but seeks to break the psychological barrier to electric motorcycles through a price of demolition. And not for less, because of being able to offer this product as they have in mind could get you for what is worth a KTM RC 390.
The project is in prototype phase and estimates that at a normal recharge point it would take between 7 and 12 hours to reach the maximum capacity, whereas in a fast charger it would be able to put it at 100% capacity in between 20 and 30 minutes.
According to its website, Vigo will need at least another five months to be fully functional and begin the tests. We will see if by then this idea materializes or remains in an extremely laughable idea.
