Why does being eco-friendly and emission-free always seem to translate to pastels and girly colors? I don't think the Austrian Johammer J1 electric motorcycle looks that bad in design structure or general aesthetics--no worse than most scooters anyway--but as soon as you tell me it comes in purple any desire I might have had to own one drains out of me and into the 19-year-old chick sitting to my right using her fake nails to text louder than a cap gun. But I mean, I'm still an advocate of you helping to save the planet with a J1 series bike.

In addition to its quiet, gas-free operation, Johammer has furthered the J1's functionality by integrating its electric motor into the rear wheel; they say the E-drive and controller are maintenance-free. The bike's front wheel uses hub-center steering and a double wishbone suspension to balance its aluminum frame and rider weight, plus achieve stability and rider comfort. Mirrors both show 2.4" hi-res digital displays of all pertinent gauges, including speed, battery power, and turn signal activation.

Available in 2 battery pack sizes (and the color purple), the J1 can achieve max speeds of around 75 mph. The J1.150 has a battery range of 90+ miles, and a 2-1/2-hour charge time to 80%. The J1.200 has a 125-mile range and requires an additional hour to reach its 80% charge.
