It's no secret that the electric bike is not quite popular today. One problem is the unavailability of adequate infrastructure and the limited mileage due to battery capacity.
But now comes the electric motorcycle that has mileage reached 380 kilometers on a single charge. Though usually electric motorcycle only has a distance of about 100 to 200 kilometers.

The Storm Pulse mileage is very impressive. The answer lies in the arms batteries. As reported by Visordown, this bike turns carrying 24 batteries that can store the power up to 28.5 kWh.

The question is, by carrying 24 batteries the motorcycle will have a troublesome weight. Reportedly, the weight of this battery vest was 340 kilograms. It has not been added to the weight of the motorcycle minus battery.

But apparently this motorcycle outsmart the weight problem by making a lightweight motorcycle. Reportedly, this bike can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just five seconds. The bike's top speed achieved up to 100 mph.
