Electric motorcycles are plug-in electric vehicles with two or three wheels powered by electricity. The electricity is stored on board in a rechargeable battery, which drives one or more electric motors. Electric bikes are an ecofriendly way of transportation. As there is ever growing population and pollution, it is important to control it, hence it is very necessary to GO GREEN using a zero emissive vehicle. Our main objective is to design a vehicle which is ecofriendly (non emission of pollutants) and economic as well. The weight of an electric bike is much less when compared to a commercial bike, plus the amount of toxins released into the atmosphere is completely avoided. The initial cost and the maintenance is also less. The speed of the vehicle depends upon the type of the motor used as well as the amount and the capacity of the battery used. In January 2013, the Indian government announced a plan to provide subsidies for hybrid and electric vehicles. The plan will have subsidies up to 150000 for cars and 50000 on two wheelers. India aims to have seven million electric vehicles on the road by 2020.
