    I like the description of the Kymco. The use of a traditional clutch and transmission appeals to me.

    I wish design teams would take advantage of the opportunities posed by electric propulsion to address long-standing design limitations of conventional motorcycles. A high priority for me would be designing on-board storage compartments so that panniers or top cases are not routinely required. Especially since many of these electric designs will be used more for local/commuting riding than long-distance touring.

    Honda was able to design their conventionally-powered NC700/750X with a forward trunk (“frunk”) large enough for a helmet. It should be even easier to achieve in an electric design.

    I would also like to see them explore the possible benefits of all-wheel-drive.
