The Bike

The Moto Electra was originally built in Brian Richardson’s sheep barn in Blue Grass, Virginia. It is powered by an electric motor and lithium-polymer batteries, which results in zero emissions. On average, the street range of the bike is 80 miles.

What’s unique about the Moto Electra is that it’s based on a 1950’s Norton Featherbed chassis.  We’ve found hidden virtue  in the 60 year old design.  The Moto Electra loses nothing to the modern chassis designs through the curves.  In fact, that’s where it shines!

  • AC induction motor
  • 67 hp 120 foot lbs. of torque
