>10k for 'green bicycle'
PETALING JAYA: After years of waiting, Malaysians will get to ride on electric motorcycles or "green bikes" once the machines make their debut next year.
JPJ director-general Datuk Solah Mat Hassan said the Road Transport Act 1987 was being amended to exempt the requirement for the machines to have engine numbers before they can be registered.
Among the features of the "green bike" are:
● The lithium battery-powered machine offers the same performance of a 125cc petrol-powered motorcycle.
● It will be priced slightly above RM10,000.
● Modenas says it is ready to launch its electric motorcycle within the new few months.
