Sure, modern electric motorcycles are cool, but we love ourselves one with vintage looks updated with modern electric equipment. San Fran-based Omega Motors took a bone stock 1975-model Honda CB200 and created the all-electric Omega EV200. The frame was modified, and a 5 kW nominal/10 kW peak Golden Motor electric motor, a Kelly Controls controller, and a 1.6 kWh battery pack, all housed under the seat. There are refurbished front forks, wheels, and brakes from the original bike, as well as original switches and the analog speedometer from the donor bike. The white, orange, and grey livery on the fuel tank pops, along with the brown leather seat that also melds with the tank pad covering the LCD battery screen. In terms of performance, the EV200 tops out at 60 mph and gets a range of 30 miles. While this might only be a one-off for now, Omega is working on a conversion kit for the CB200.
