Racing electric motorcycles is something we seem to be seeing more and more of. The race we're talking about here was a friendly three-lap affair at a track on the edge of Bangkok, Thailand that ended (*spoiler alert) in a win for the gas machine. However, if the Electric GPR-S, piloted by the owner of Electric Motorsport, Todd Kollin, hadn't wiped out half-way through, the result might have been different.

While the race was pretty cool, the exciting news here is the coming of another electric motorcycle to our shores. Using a motorcycle chassis from Thai motorcycle maker Tiger Motorsports and powered by 72 volts of lithium ion, this newest entrant into the market should have a top end of 70 mph and a range between 40 and 60 miles. Look for a price in the neighborhood of $8,000, which isn't too bad considering the competition. Tiger Motorsports has plans to sell the bike in Asia as the E-Boxer.
