Saietta Electric Motorcycle A Heartbreaker

Electric motorcycles are becoming increasingly more common these days, but the Agility Saietta (which comes to us via Greenlaunches) isn’t one that’s likely to get lost in the crowd.

The distinctive, aggressively-styled Saietta debuted at the MCN London Motorcycle Show, where it no doubt turned plenty of heads. It features wide handle-bars, a high line-of-sight, a low center of gravity and heightened wheel control for what is called  “a dramatically capable man-machine synergy.”

Both the S and R models are billed as furiously fast (though the R model is more so) and both are powered exclusively by electricity, producing zero emissions from the tail-pipe. Technical specs on these two models are pretty damm impressive, with the S going 0-60 MPH in 5.5 seconds, while the R hits that rate in around 4 seconds. Range on the S is around 50 miles, with the R doubling that.

Of course, “the next generation of urban sports bike,” with all that power and good looks, doesn’t come cheap. The Saietta S is available for around $16,200, the R model for around $22,650.
