Hydrogen fuel cell motorcycles

One of the obvious applications of hydrogen fuel cells is the motorcycle. Current technology results in a vehicle that is typically noisy, polluting and has limited reliability. A motor cycle powered by a hydrogen fuel cell hybrided with a battery pack and all electric drive provides a vehicle that is silent, simpler, lighter, zero polluting and ultimately cheaper than the old gasoline technology.

Several companies are developing fuel cell powered motorcycles and they will will be produced in the same 2013-2016 time frame of the fuel cell automobiles. Like the cars they are waiting for the availability of sufficient hydrogen fueling stations.
