As liquid petroleum fuels deplete, transportation will shift increasingly to electric propulsion technology. One of the main problems with the current generation electric vehicles is limited range because the batteries do not have the energy storage capacity afforded by liquid hydrocarbons. Maximizing the range of electric vehicle requires a reduction in performance or an increase in cost of the system. The goal of this study is to optimize the range and performance of an electric motorcycle. The driving range of the experimental vehicle is justified by the current consumption rate where higher current rate significantly reduces the battery discharge capacity.
