Lightbulb Shape-Shifting, Self-Healing E-Bikes

Just thought it's interesting and wanted to share

Fifty years from now, the MotoGP grid will be all-electric. Today’s most advanced electric motors are already better than current MotoGP engines in terms of torque delivery, physical size, engine-braking control and reduced gyroscopic/handling impact. In 50 years, it will not even be close.

Where batteries are concerned, charge time will become equal to fill time for gas bikes. Battery energy density may increase two times or even four times in 50 years, but the real breakthrough will be in charging. Carbonized nano-graphite networks, which emulate the structure of bone marrow, will dramatically increase battery surface area and reduce full-charging intervals to minutes, or possibly even seconds.

Bikes will roll on self-healing tires. High frequency, ultrasonic tire warmers will trigger engineered molecules in the rubber to flow from areas of high density to areas of low density. The result will be a tire that can heal itself from cold tears, harsh abuse and uneven wearing to look like new for the next track session.

Aerodynamics will play a more important role as energy consumption will be continually reduced. Fairings that change shape to offer maximum benefit in a variety of conditions will be necessary to maintain performance while reducing consumption.

Finally, Kenny Roberts will still be faster than you on an XR100 around a backyard dirt track!

You have great ideas, but your logic is slightly flawed if you think we will be allowed to drive fast....
in 50 years All vehicles will be electric powered, but they will be low powered.
in the interest of "fuel economy" and "safety" all vehicles will be very slow and will be connected to the government to "monitor you for safety reasons" computers will regulate your acceleration rates and spacing between vehicles.
they will e-mail you a receipt for the huge fine they electronically removed from your savings account if you speed or unplug your speed sensor.
Because your on board computer will "rat you out"

As much as I really, really dig the idea of electric bikes, I think they need to have on-board power generation system rather than batteries to be a viable option. Problem: no on board power generation...solution, fit a small nuclear reactor .... problem solved!

How about small neclear reactor inside the battery, the "infenion" brand battery will NEVER run low or need a recharge.....

this was posted many years ago on a R/C boat racing sight.......

I am not going to be around in fifty years. I am still wondering whether my next bike will be a V twin, an in-line triple, or a V 4. I say "just give it more gas"
