Honda EV Cub

In the near term, motorbikes like the Honda EV Cub might be more practical. Taking design cues from the Honda Cub, the best-selling motorcycle in history, the electric version features a two-wheel drive system (a motor for each wheel) that improves handling on difficult surfaces. It could hit dealerships by the end of 2010.
