    The Pursang E-Track looks to be a very well designed and developed ADV-style electric motorcycle. Consumer models are being delivered to the Netherlands, but the linked article doesn't say where else it will be marketed or what the retail cost will be: https://electricmotorcycles.news/fir...cture-gallery/

    Lag: I have been following Damon for the past year. They have amazing specifications and technical ideas. But for me, it seems like Damon is having too much spin for a startup that doesn't have any retail dealers yet or, to my knowledge, has sold any motorcycles to actual customers, in spite of some comments to the contrary that they have made recently. The company sounds too much to me like Mission Motors, Lightning, and many others that have come and gone after making big claims but have not been able to deliver vehicles to waiting customers. It is easy to make a one-off, hand built, very expensive, technology prototype and less so to manufacture the bike like that in numbers and at a price that most people are willing to pay. Also, you need to set up a factory, contract with suppliers, develop a retail market, train technicians to work on all of that fancy tech, set up a distribution network for both the bike and replacement parts, and all of the other things needed to make a functioning motorcycle manufacturing company. Even Polaris couldn't hack it with their Victory (formerly Brammo) Electric motorcycle. And now that motorcycle is a complete orphan that their dealers won't touch with an electric cattle prod and parts are no longer available. Anyway, I will believe Damon's claims when I see their motorcycles in a retail showroom being sold at prices that the market can afford.

    And speaking of affording, I just found out that the Pursang E-Track sells for a "starting" price of $14,500 Euros.

    Ya haven't followed Damon much since the fanfare over the prototype, perhaps Covid has slowed them up as well,,. One observation I had was the specs were all ahead of the current offerings by those bike makers that have already come to market,,. Anyway some great ideas, I wish them well but would need to be convinced of a lot before I would take the plunge including the points you have mentioned,,,, around 20,000 USD,,.

    I saw a test review of this Black Forest model, looks nice, fit, finish, style are spot on,,. On paper it has a pretty usable range and would be pretty good for certain purposes however your range can evaporate real fast when you start working it, suddenly you find yourself in the outback somewhere with a dead battery,,. Not bad for commuter bike in urban semi rural locations where there is a power outlet of some sort on every building but not sure it would work for what a lot of folks do,,!!

    Here is an interesting video discussing the rise and fall of Victory Motorcycles. Their electric motorcycle development is mentioned beginning at minute 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4wOkzt4y-o
