    Dear spell check, yes "petrol" really is a word, we just don't use that term very often on this side of the pond.
    ... and I should never post anything after midnight

    Yes indeed, electric bikes use less patrol

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Definitely LEDs.

    Why am I reminded of the alarm in A Fist Full of Yen?

    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.
