THIS is the Volta BCN City and Sport - two new electric motorcycles form Spanish firm Volta.

They both use the same powerplant - a 3.1kWh lithium-polymer battery, and an elctric motor with a 33bhp (25kW) output.

Both models have a range of around 45 miles between charges and a recharge takes two hours. The cost of each recharge is around 30 pence. After 1500 charges the battery will still have 80% of its capacity, says Volta.

Volta quote a cost of around £6,000 and say they will be available in Summer 2012.

terrible design. They shoudl learn from the Prius. People won't buy electric things until they look non electric. Go for rounded curves you fools, not straight computer like lines.

I, personally, like the design and am glad it doesn't look like it was carved from a block of melting butter.
