According to the Consejo Nacional de Vialidad (Conavi) – National Road Council, a gasoline-powered motorcycle costs ¢24.69 per kilometer traveled for fuel and ¢66.11 in maintenance, while the electric will spend just ¢ 461 for electricity and ¢28.97 maintenance.

The new “chuzos” can run up to 250 kilometers on a charge.

First Lady, Claudia Dobles, in making the announcement, said she was pleased because the units are environmentally friendly.

“As the national electricity matrix is almost one hundred percent clean, electric motorcycles can be considered to be really zero emissions. This is an action more directed from the Government to improve the quality of our air and the health of the population,” she said

The investment was ¢210 million colones and includes maintenance for 80,000 kilometers, eight charge centers, communication radios, and helmets.
