Electric Vehicles - 138M electric motorcycles and scooters projected worldwide by 2017

Quite an outlook from Pike Research on the two wheeled electric vehicle market, they project 138 milion electric motor cycles and electric scooters to be on the road worldwide by 2017. 

I'm not sure how many there are at the moment, but there is a fortune to be made selling electric two wheelers for sure!

They are clean, sustainable, produce less noise and provide excellent mobility in urban areas. With their acceleration they should also appeal to the sportier drivers out there. Who can I get one?
