    We all love riding superbikes, or at least looking at them zip away. Bikes are all about speed and attitude. Make way for the newest electric superbike by the American motorcycle company, Roehr. Christened as the 1250sc, this bike will be available in both, street as well as racing versions. This is the first bike from this
    motorcycle company who has ensured that they make their debut in the market in an environmentally friendly way. This bike can do everything a normal superbike does; it throws up 180 horsepower using a modified
    supercharged Harley Davidson Revolution engine, 96 hp and 210 pound-feet of torque.

    Powered by a 10kWh lithium iron phosphate battery, this bike can burn up the asphalt and leave the others behind in a cloud of cleaner dust devoid of any CO2 emissions. A second version of this electric bike with 48 hp and a 6kWh battery will also be available. The price of these electric mean machines hasn’t been announced by the company yet. This American electric sports bike is sure to spark the interest of bikers everywhere.
