If the world keeps going green, then the motorcycle enthusiasts of the future will find themselves riding the BOLT electric bike. The BOLT was created by Dutch designers Springtime as a look into the future of the motorcycle.

Electric cars are currently all the rage, but the motorcycle industry has been slow to embrace this new type of propulsion. That could all change thanks to designs such as the BOLT electric bike. BOLT is powered by two electric motors pumping out about 80kw of power. The bike's body is designed in the cafe racer style, and features LED brake lights and illuminated footrests. The bike is a little small, so it may not appeal to those who prefer their choppers to be sized like actual choppers. Still, urbanites looking for a compact and green mode of transportation would more than likely snap up a design like the BOLT. Stats for Green Cafe Racers Trending: Older & Buzzing
