Suzuki is bringing an electric mini concept to the 2013 Tokyo MS in a couple weeks. If you're wondering WTF an Extrigger is its a portmanteau or Electric Crossover and Trigger... don't ask me....

Appearance wise the diminutive Suzuki looks quite Grom-ish until you notice its belly, or lack there of. In place is an electric motor stolen from the Suzuki e-Let scooter.

the Extrigger will also show up with wireless connectivity. to get this, allow riders to communicate with each other. I don't know about y'all but when I'm riding two hands are generally required. Texting and riding, nice...

Here's Suzuki's marketing speak:

  • This is an electric motorcycle that was developed to give more people the chance to find out the fun of motorcycling. It is easy to ride and offers new sensations.
  • An electric motor unit of the e-Let’s electric scooter is equipped on a compact frame similar to that of a small bicycle.
  • While it feels like a toy bike, the Extrigger has features that are small but look like the real thing: aluminum frame, inverted front forks, front and rear disc brakes, and so on.
  • Making use of visible light communication technology, the rider can receive information from the motorcycle shop or enjoy communicating with friends.
  • The name Extrigger is coined from EX, which stands for Electric CROSS (X) over, and TRIGGER, which means a chance. Our desire to give people a chance to get interested in motorcycles with this model is put into its name.
They call it a toy....

cool idea but I don't think I'd be getting one.

It must have an insane amount of torque.

Wheelie monster

But no exhaust note? No thank you. Electric motors sound lame

More importantly wonder what the range is? I can see people picking one up to play with but I doubt people will be using it for commuting like some of you use the Grom...
