        A conventional H4 bulb draws 60W on high beam. A Zero S with the smallest battery has 5.7 kWh, so you could run that light for 95 hours. They probably run more lights on a police bike, but they're probably also LEDs which draw about 1/4 the power, so it likely all cancels out. I don't know how much the radio draws, but assuming it's of the same order of magnitude then overall power consumption of bells and whistles looks negligible.

          Definitely LEDs.

            If it had a real seat, I think I would actually ride it. I'm not a cruiser person by any means, but I love the simplicity of this one. I wonder what is in the "tank" besides air? That seems like a really good place to hide electronics, or even a frunk.

              It looks very light.
              Best Appetite Suppressants are superb for losing weight.

                Wet weight of the host Cleveland CycleWerks "Heist" which it was based upon was 291 pounds. I have no idea how much heavier/lighter the electric motor is but this one lacks the extra weight in the way of an exhaust system and the two gallons of fuel considered in that original figure.

                  Would an electric motorcycle attract lightning, more than a typical petro powered counterpart?

                    That all depends on how tall of a chopper-esque sissy bar you attach to it.

                              I think it is good that engine do not have much weight. It reduces the weight of the vehicle and the maintainence cost of it is also very low and it uses less petrol. I think this is best.
