What is claimed is:

1. A saddle-type vehicle comprising:

a saddle-type vehicle chassis;

a front fork connected to the saddle-type vehicle chassis;

a front wheel connected to the front fork;

a rear wheel connected to the saddle-type vehicle chassis;

an electric motor connected to the rear wheel, wherein the electric motor is powered by a rechargeable energy storage system, and

a braking system including:

a friction brake providing a first braking force to the front wheel of the saddle-type vehicle,

a regenerative device coupled to the rear wheel, wherein the regenerative device provides a second braking force to the rear wheel and generates an electric current when the rear wheel is decelerating, and wherein the electric current charges the rechargeable energy storage system,

a brake actuation device configured for movement by an operator, one or more motor controllers coupled to the brake actuation device and the rechargeable energy storage system, wherein when the brake actuation device is actuated, the one or more motor controllers activates the regenerative device to decelerate the rear wheel and create the electric current to charge the rechargeable energy storage system, and

a brake actuation sensor operatively coupled to the brake actuation device, wherein a movement of the brake actuation device causes the brake actuation sensor to communicate data to the one or more motor controllers, wherein the one or more motor controllers use the data to calculate an amount of brake force required by the regenerative device to apply to the rear wheel.

2. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the electric motor includes the regenerative device to provide forward drive for the saddle-type vehicle and also to provide braking force to the rear wheel to decelerate the rear wheel.

3. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the first braking force applied to the front wheel is applied only by the friction brake, and the second braking force applied to the rear wheel is applied only by the regenerative device.

4. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein both the friction brake connected to the front wheel and the regenerative device connected to the rear wheel are activated together through actuation of the brake actuation device, and wherein the brake actuation device is a lever assembly.

5. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 4, wherein the lever assembly is configured to be actuated by a hand of the operator.

6. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 4, wherein the lever assembly is configured to be actuated by a foot of the operator.

7. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the one or more motor controllers adjusts the amount of braking force based on information received from attitude sensors on the saddle-type vehicle.

8. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the one or more motor controllers provides an Anti-Lock Brake function for the rear wheel.

9. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the saddle-type vehicle is a 2- wheeled vehicle.

10. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the saddle-type vehicle is a 3-wheeled vehicle.

11. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the saddle-type vehicle is a four-wheeled vehicle.

12. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein when the friction brake includes an Anti-Lock Brake module, a wheel speed sensor provides data to the Anti-Lock Brake module to

enable the Anti-Lock Brake module to identify events that involve loss of traction, and wherein the wheel speed sensor is part of the electric motor or connected to the rear wheel.

13. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein when power is restricted from the electric motor, the electric motor is restricted from rotating causing the rear wheel to be immobilized.

14. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the brake actuation sensor is a pressure sensor.

15. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the brake actuation sensor is a position sensor.

16. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 1, wherein the brake actuation sensor is a magnetic position sensor.

17. A saddle-type vehicle comprising:

a saddle-type vehicle chassis;

a front fork connected to the saddle-type vehicle chassis;

a front wheel connected to the front fork;

a rear wheel connected to the saddle-type vehicle chassis;

an electric motor connected to the rear wheel, wherein the electric motor is powered by a rechargeable energy storage system and also provides a driving force to the rear wheel, and

a braking system including:

a friction brake providing braking force to the front wheel of the saddle-type vehicle; and

a brake actuation device configured for movement by an operator, wherein when the brake actuation device is actuated, the friction brake applies a first braking force to the front wheel and the electric motor applies a second braking force to the rear wheel causing the rear wheel to decelerate, and wherein when the rear wheel is decelerating, the electric motor generates an electric current that charges the rechargeable energy storage system.

18. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 17, wherein both the friction brake connected to the front wheel and the electric motor connected to the rear wheel are activated together through actuation of the brake actuation device.

19. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 18, wherein the brake actuation device includes a brake actuation sensor, wherein a movement of the brake actuation device causes the brake actuation sensor to communicate data to one or more motor controllers, wherein the one or more motor controllers use the data to calculate an amount of the second braking force to apply to the rear wheel.

20. The saddle-type vehicle of claim 17, wherein the brake actuation device is a single lever assembly that is configured to be actuated by a hand of the operator.
