motoThose from Honda comes with a new eco proposal for a greener urban transport: the zero emission bike, called E-Dream. The electric engine,  20kW EL-1, is one of the most energy efficient from its class and the bike can reach 60 km / h.

The most important aspect is that the bike is fitted with Toshiba SCiB batteries. These lithium-ion batteries take only 5 minutes to charge up to 90%, or you can let them 4 hours for a full charge. Batteries can be charged very simple : by using the prize or the PowerDock system, provided by Honda, to be used in the urban charging stations.

Will be produced three models: the Green Dream, Black Diamond and Pure Dream with little difference between them. Although the bike’s design is very modern and attractive,  but being limitated to recah only 60km / h might discourage the bike fans to adopt an “eco” model.

    Cool concept, but why would it take only 5 minutes to charge 90% yet another 4 hours to charge the batteries the additional 10%? And how far will it go on that one charge?

    If the batteries are charged every day, i guess that these will ensure a lifespan of approximately 10-12 years. If anyone know more details about these batteries please tell me.
