Let's look at the payback for going with a $39,000 electric superbike versus a bike like a Ninja ZX10R.

First, let's subtract the cost of the Ninja to get the cost of going electric. $39,000 - $15,000 = $24,000.

Now, let's divide that by the cost of a gallon of premium gas @ $3.00 a gallon. That's 8,000 gallons to break even. A Ninja ZX10R averages 35 mpg so 8,000 x 35 = 280,000 miles is the break even mileage just figuring gas.

Now let's look at the practical side.

I ride about 5,000 miles per year. 280,000 divided by 5,000 miles per year = 56 years.

I'm currently 72 years old, so I'd be 128 years old when I break even.
Now that's funny!
