Yamaha showcases EC-f all-electric motorcycle at Tokyo Motor Show

Shown at the Tokyo Motor Show the Yamaha EC-f is a electric commuter vehicles designed to make motorcycle riding easy.

It's made from lightweight aluminium and runs on a lithium-ion battery which can be plugged into a normal electrical socket for recharging.

Makers say it has been designed to feel familiar for people of all ages regardless of their previous riding experience.

Given it's distinctive styling maybe they think we all have experience of riding around on an X-Box 360

Power for the little bike comes from a 0.6kWh electric motor. The battery pack is recharged from a standard AC outlet. Exactly how far the EC-f can travel on a single charge is unknown. I can see the Shriners of the future riding something like this in figure eights during parades.
