Ready for some real power? Upgrade from an e-bike to this electric motorcycle. The 72V motor is rated for 8000 watts continuous output, and 12,000 watts peak. It has loads of torque (max 190 Nm) that generates an acceleration rate of 3 to 6 m/s^2, which is better than most cars. The top speed is approximately 90 mph (120 kph) to make it suitable for highway driving, but it also handles great on the trails. To top it off, the 60Ah/4.2 kWh lithium battery provides a convenient ~62 miles (100 kms) of driving range, per charge, on avg terrain. All of this is mounted to a very strong frame, fabricated with 1″ square, 11 gauge steel tubing.

Do it yourself” (“DIY“) is the method of building, modifying, or repairing things without the direct aid of experts or professionals. Academic research has described DIY as behaviors where “individuals engage raw and semi-raw materials and parts to produce, transform, or reconstruct material possessions, including those drawn from the natural environment (e.g., landscaping)”.[1] DIY behavior can be triggered by various motivations previously categorized as marketplace motivations (economic benefits, lack of product availability, lack of product quality, need for customization), and identity enhancement (craftsmanship, empowerment, community seeking, uniqueness).[2]

The term “do-it-yourself” has been associated with consumers since at least 1912 primarily in the domain of home improvement and maintenance activities.[3] The phrase “do it yourself” had come into common usage (in standard English) by the 1950s,[4] in reference to the emergence of a trend of people undertaking home improvement and various other small craft and construction projects as both a creative-recreational and cost-saving activity.

Subsequently, the term DIY has taken on a broader meaning that covers a wide range of skill sets. DIY has been described as a “self-made-culture”; one of designing, creating, customizing and repairing items or things without any special training. DIY has grown to become a social concept with people sharing ideas, designs, techniques, methods and finished projects with one another either online or in person. WIKI
