Gizmag recently released a really good interview with Richard Hatfield, the founder of Lighting Motorcycles. This electric motorcycle company has made waves since they won Pikes Peak in 2013 beating gas powered motorcycles by almost 20 seconds up the mountain in the Open Class. Also they charged all the bikes using solar panels.
This interview is a bit long but you can just listen to it if you want on SoundCloud. The YouTube video is below.
Hatfield says that one area that electric motorcycles and the Lightning LS-218 have over gas powered bikes is the fact that there is not as much gyroscopic inertia making turns easier.
