For all you eco warriors out there - Ecodrive has just announced their launch of the world's first battery powered motorcycles and scooters. Given they offer the economy of a bicycle (no licence, registration, insurance, gas, Air care, parking fees), with the practicality of a motor-scooter that can zip along most areas on electric power alone - sounds like an interesting propostion. Only available in Canada though - so lets see how they fare...
Implications - Environmentally friendly products are gaining recognition at a rapid rate and are increasing in popularity in modern society. Companies will benefit from appealing to the wide demographic of people who are interested in leading eco-friendly lifestyles.
