EV-Cub electric motorcycle is one of them, besides EVE-neo electric scooter and its already announced PCX global scooter. The motorcycle offers more stability and traction than its rear-wheel cousins, as touted. It could be a lot more easier to learn too, for riders who are just beginning to get their ropes in driving.
