They cool down electric motors and batteries

I've seen a KTM Freeride with the radiators before.  There they cool down the motor and the controller, not the batteries.  Not sure if you can actually cool the batteries, as the power packs are normally removable. I was more impressed by Honda doing this than incredulous about  the radiators.  Quite a few electric bike manufacturers use simple air cooling.

I hope this gets into production and gets distributed.. sign me up

I think its the way of the future, as population explodes and places to ride get harder and harder to find this is going to be a game changer. The Swiss and nordic countries like Denmark, Sweden etc which have hectic noise laws must be rubbing their hands

For me personally Ill take one no problem but I suspect they not going to be cheap
