    • Rank: Charging an electric motorcycle off the house battery

    Hi there,
    Just put a down payment on a new Zero FX electric motorcycle. So excited!
    The dream would be to get solar panels and enough house battery storage to charge the bike off the van overnight.
    Would be great to stay DC to ovoid power loss using an inverter. Anyone tried something like this?
    I’m not very electrically savvy. I think the bike pulls about 8 amps of power. Also would be running a fridge.
    Pipe dream?

    thanks

    I didn’t find the right solution from the internet.
