Shooting the bull / Gettysburg Bike Week 2023
Last post by Biketographer - July 21, 2022, 07:03:06 AM
GETTYSBURG, Pa., July 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the premiere motorcycle rallies in the country, Gettysburg Bike Week began its third decade with action packed events for the throngs of folks in attendance. The 21st anniversary rally happened at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, PA, with festivities kicking off Thursday, July 6-9, 2023

"Hard to believe we're into our third decade," said GBW event director Kelly Shue. "The rally feels fresh every year and this year was no exception."

Reveling in a jam-packed slate of motorsports and entertainment events, the packed crowd was thrilled by the Moto Motion Stunt Show, Shinerunner Cornhole Tournament, Battlefield Ride of Chrome, fireworks and much, much more! Lucky contestants won $500 cash prizes for winning the mini-bike race and Ride-In Bike Show best-of-show. Jen Shade debuted as emcee, and the Gin Gypsies did what they do best: sling drinks.

There was music galore, with the Kiltie Band of York, Velveeta and patriotic superstar Dave Bray USA getting things rolling on Thursday night; Redemption Road, Shades of Raven, Small Town Titans and Black Stone Cherry upping the ante on Friday; and Smokin Gunz, Jasmine Cain and Colt Ford bringing the house down Saturday night with rollicking sets.

All of this in addition to one of the biggest vendor villages in the country, an epic swap meet, the Antique Bike Show, two poker runs and some of the best motorcycle terrain in the east had the record crowd in high spirits.

If you missed this year's iconic rally, fear not: Plans for next year's rally, number 22, are already in the works with Ace Frehley as the Friday 2023 headliner.

Shooting the bull / Re: Italy Electric Motorcycle ...
Last post by Biketographer - July 19, 2022, 08:04:33 AM
NEW YORK, July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the market research report published by P&S Intelligence, in 2021, the Italy electric scooter and motorcycle market was valued at $26.7 million, and it will touch a value of $707.1 million by 2035, at a growth rate of about 30% through the period of 2021–2025 and, further, approximately 24% during the period 2026–2035.
P_and_S_Intelligence_Logo.jpg
Li-ion batteries dominate the Italy electric scooter and motorcycle market with over $26-million revenue, which will advance by about 31% in the span of 2021–2025. Maximum electric two-wheeler manufacturers prefer Li-ion batteries because of their low self-discharge rate, no memory effect, and high density of energy. Furthermore, these batteries last longer than sealed lead–acid batteries.

Get the sample pages of this report at: https://www.psmarketresearch.com/market-analysis/italy-electric-scooter-motorcycle-market/report-sample

Electric scooters witness the highest demand in the Italy electric scooter and motorcycle market, and their sales value will grow at a rate of about 23% till 2025. More power is needed by motorcycles, which means a bigger battery and electric motor are required, thus pushing up their acquisition cost. Furthermore, electric scooters are one of the most-cost-effective options for traveling short distances, thereby pushing e-scooter sales in the country.

The growth in the Italy electric scooter and motorcycle market will be the most rapid in vehicles with a battery of 100 V or more, at a growth rate of around 38%, during the years 2026–2035. The improved mileage and performance of these vehicles will propel their sales in the near future. Moreover, with a lack of charging infrastructure in the country, customers are focusing on EV mileage.

Between the years 1990 and 2019, Italy abridged its emissions by approximately 19%. Its efforts to reduce emissions are inseparably associated with the European Union's policies and recommendations. The European Union recently created a new policy related to the European Climate Law, intended at reducing GHG emissions to a minimum of 55% by the year 2030 from the levels 40 years ago. This is a momentous surge over the preceding goal of a 40% decrease established under the Paris Agreement.

Browse detailed report on Italy Electric Scooter and Motorcycle Market Size, Trends, Emerging Opportunities, And Demand Forecast to 2030

Italy has publicized a novel target for the year 2030 as per the ESR, of a 33% reduction in releases from 2005. These initiatives will help in expanding the growth possibility of the Italy electric scooter and motorcycle market in the years to come, by implementing stringent emission regulations on ICE variants and making people more conscious of climate change.
