Hmm... Probably gets more mileage than a car I would guess.

I'd only buy one if they looked better than and were faster than the RR bikes on the market today.

If it doesn't go "VROOOM!" fuhgeddaboutit!!! :p
Or to borrow Crocodile Dundee's line, That's not a motorcycle... THIS is a motorcycle:

Well, it's not bad for one of the first, but there is a long way to go.

This is not some replacement for a Harley. Electric bikes that can go highway speeds are highly tuned works of engineering.

I don't doubt the engineering, or the good intentions. But I would not be looking to buy one of these anytime soon. There's more than aesthetics behind my preference for the "VROOM" -- Car drivers often do not see us coming, but sometimes they can hear us -- that can be the difference between life & death. The electro-bike would be nearly silent! I would sooner get an electric car, for the sake of better protection.

If needed put a sound system on it to make the sound.

I can see a use for it: a vehicle for covert-ops troops. Silent travel.

The Next bike for Australian Post!:-? They already have push bikes with electric motors to assist ridders as they travel on their rounds.

Where I live you can't drive a combustion engine vehicle.
Only emergency vehicles and a few lg trucks to haul lg goods from dock.
Electric is the law here. :yep:
