With gas prices on the rise, alternative fuels are more popular than ever. The Brammo Enertia Electric Motorcycle ($12,000 and up) uses six Lithium Phosphate battery modules to propel you from zero to 30 mph in just 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 50mph and a range of 45 miles from a single 3-hour charge. It's about time bike makers joined in the race for greener vehicles.
Implications - Gas prices are undeniably rising at astronomical rates, and with such, consumers are wary of purchasing products that aren't green. Businesses that can create products that are environmentally savvy will continue to be out-purchased by consumers who are cautious of spending.
