Unlike electric cars with their high prices and large footprints (both geometric and carbon footprints), electric motorcycles represent some of the smallest and most affordable electric vehicles on the planet. That’s why many countries are eschewing popular electric cars in favor of two-wheeled EVs.
While Europeans have embraced motorcycles and scooters as somewhat common alternative forms of transportation, many Asian countries have long relied on two-wheelers as the main transportation method of choice.
Indonesia is one of them, and the country is now making a concerted effort to switch its large ICE-powered motorcycle fleets to electric motorcycles. That includes putting 2 million electric motorcycles on the roads by 2025.
