LOVE your Ariel.I've posted photos of my other Ariels on here before so now it is the turn of my 1950 NG. This is a single cylinder, 350 cc machine. It certainly won't go up a long, steep hill in fourth gear but puttering around the backroads on it is a lot of fun. Speeds of 50 - 55 mph are comfortable but much more than that makes it feel like the motor is forcing a bit too much for a 72 year old machine. In the background of the photo is my relatively new, 50 year old International tractor.View attachment 751390
Well at least the Big four will have input and agree on a swappable battery architecture that will have a standardized design.It looks like a number of new motorcycles will soon be discontinued, due to compliance issues with European emissions standards.
Today's emission standards call motorcycles to be upgraded with the times, or cut from the roads altogether- and that includes the Big Four.www.webbikeworld.com

I think that is a better and more preferable way of approaching all electric bikes than having the EPA or like EU governmental agency mandate something they themselves are not capable or well versed in with all that is involved.
At least with Yamaha (a leader in high power light motor design) and the other motorcycle manufacturers input it likely will be a well thought out reliable system.
