To build the ultimate modular platform for electric motorcycle design, and to make transportation freedom available to riders through a worldwide community of motorcycle enthusiasts.
Who We Are…
Enthusiasts, tuners, shop owners and newbies. Welders, designers, and travel-free dreamers. Custom builders and highway riders. Back to the road and new to the road, always looking for adventure in whatever comes our way.
Shandoka is a Ute Indian word meaning The Storm Gatherer, for a mountain in southwestern Colorado around which storm clouds gather before a rain or snowfall. We saw the innovation gathering around electric power and knew the day would come when electric-powered vehicles would outperform traditional gas-powered vehicles. That day is here and Shandoka is ready with the Modular Electric Motorcycle. It's built on a design platform that will grow and advance right along with motor designs and energy storage technologies. So you'll never be left in the dustbin of innovation.
Why Join Us…
For recreation or business, electric mobility is ready to go when you are. Cargo options for ski, surf, and groceries mean your Shandoka Cycles motortrike can replace more expensive car trips for many of your errands - and the bonus is an upstoppable grin. Got an old bike that no longer runs? Shandoka modular conversion designs let you transform your old full-size open road and street cruiser ICE cycles into sleek modern machines. We have modular and upgradable power options to fit your riding style and environment.
About Shandoka Cycles
Shandoka models range from compact motorbikes to twin tilting wheel motortrikes. Emanate, our electric cycle conversion system, works with most all ICE motorcycles. That's right. With MN8, you can convert a gas-powered motorcycle into an easy-to-maintain, environmentally friendly electric motorcycle. And, our modular designs mean your bike will always be ready for changes in battery power, recharging, and even in power sources such as solar.
Designed for Upgrades
Battery Tech keeps improving - and so should your motorcycle. With the Shandoka system, you can always upgrade your juicer to the latest innovations. Ultra-capacitors, solid-state batteries, and liquid-cooled systems are on the way. Be ready for the future with Shandoka MN8.
Easy to Operate and Charge
With no gears to shift or clutch to pull, Shandoka motorbikes and motortrikes are easy to learn to ride. Removable battery packs on some models mean easy charging in your office, dorm, or home. For recreation or business, alone or with your favorite passenger, electric mobility is ready to go when you are.

Venture & Explore
Fun to ride and perfect for those short trips. Why stand when you can sit? Plus, these sweet rides can carry two! The Venture has a top speed of 28 mph. Some states do not require a driver's license for vehicles that operate below 30 mph, making the Venture a good first-bike choice.
A compact motortrike that is easy to operate and built for riding with a friend. Twin rear wheels tilt to give you the feel of a motorcycle while offering greater stability. Multiple battery options give you an extended range at higher speeds.
