As part of the government’s drive for us to go green, you can get £1500 back in the form of a grant (20% of the cost of the vehicle up to a maximum £1500) on an electric motorcycle. Electric bikes pay no road tax and the motor and battery require no servicing (the Energica needs its motor’s oil level checking). In fact, Zero claim their battery will last the bike’s lifetime of nearly 350,000 miles! Aside from swapping fluids and the basics such as tyres, chain (or belt on the Zero) and brake pads, that’s about it. A full recharge costs between £1 and £2 depending on the price of your electricity.
