While electric bikes have single-mindedly marched toward maximizing battery life, the Zero FX ZF5.7 takes a different, more rambunctious approach. The FX's mosquito-like, postindustrial silhouette tells you everything you need to know about this bad boy: It can travel only 43 miles before needing an outlet, but its ultralight 275 pounds of mass and wheelie-popping 70 foot-pounds of torque ameliorate its practical shortcomings. Hooligans rejoice: Now there's an electric hot rod fully focused on fun. [$11,990; zeromotorcycles.com]
