I've noticed that most EV's either don't use a transmission or they only use a simple 1-2 shifter. I think (aside from the tesla) these all suffer acceleration problems though don't they?

I'm not working on a killa-cycle budget or know-how! I just thought mating a big 9" to a motorcycle manual would allow me gobs of power down low (400:1 ratio in first) but the ability to cruise at 70+mph without much power drain. Does the logic sound solid?
