Clubbing good looks with substantial range is not something usually happens with electric motorcycles- though a few do succeed on this front. Hence the void usually ends up being filled either with utility or range. On similar lines, Zaiser Motors has launched the new Electrocycle which appears to be an amalgamation of a cruiser and a vintage car. But if the design puts you off- the Electrocycle relents for a closer inspection. Performance & Range While two-wheel drive on a motorcycle is not something new, but it’s not as extensive either. The Zaiser Electrocycle offers a twin hub drive powered…
