Oftentimes, riders want to transport their bikes to new riding areas and travel destinations. To do this safely and securely, there are a few key differences between electric motorbikes and gas-powered ones.
The electric UBCO 2X2, for example, is much lighter than the Yamaha TW200. At just 70kg (53kg when the battery is removed), it's easy to lift and transport in a truck or on the back of a car. The Yamaha TW200, on the other hand, weighs in at a hefty 126kg. This can make it difficult to move around, especially if you're trying to do it by yourself.
When it comes to the actual process of loading and unloading your bike, electric motorbikes have a definite advantage. Since they don't have gas tanks, there's no need to worry about spillage or leaks. You can simply pick up the bike and lay it in the back of your truck or pop it onto a towball mounted bike rack.
Gas-powered bikes, on the other hand, need to be carefully loaded onto a truck or trailer to avoid damaging the engine or fuel tank. This can be tricky for inexperienced riders and is something that should be done by two people if possible.
Being lightweight, UBCO 2X2 is also much easier to manoeuvre, both on and off the road.
In terms of price, the UBCO 2X2 is more expensive than the Yamaha TW200. The UBCO 2X2 ADV sells for £6,250 in the UK, versus the TW200's RRP of £3,430. In the long run though, electric motorbikes are a much more efficient mode of transportation and will save you money in fuel and oil costs and other engine/drivetrain maintenance. Even the annual registration cost is lower, saving you money down the line.
