All over it, followed by a match, but not before heavily insuring it because you realized you just spent $10,000 on something with a 62 mile range that competes with $3000 machines with 200 mile range.

Umm...sweet? I don't get it. Looks like an expensive turd. There's nothing in the stats that makes me say wow besides the price tag.

Good power for electric, actually great range considering the compact size, and a FAST recharge time in comparison to other E-vehicles.

lol.
Bicycles run on tacos and whiskey.
Clean and renewable.
Usually well under 10 grand to get into and don't take three hours to recharge.
And while some know my feelings about bicycles, they are still less stupid than one of these.

10 k for a piece of crap that will only take me 62 lousy miles before I have to sit and twiddle my thumbs for 3 freaking hours before I can continue on my way?

Are you freaking joking? Really?

Get lost and take that over priced pile of garbage with you!

I could see these catching on in metro areas for the young proffesional. Not here but Europe for sure. Especially areas that have restricted motor vehicles use to reduce innercity smog.

Isn't the "fast" charge just a product of limited capacity? Larger capacity equals longer charge times. Which E-vehicles are you comparing it with?

you clearly know nothing about electric vehicles. For people in big cities, only going 10-20 miles a day, this would cost mere cents per day in electricity. It's not a long highway commuter, it's a city commuter. And of CURRENT electric vehicles, it's pretty damn good.

yes electric technology isn't quite there yet, but we have to get something into the market, and this is a great start! It'll sell like nuts in Europe, especially china and to the wealthy of india.

It's not my thing either. But...

The first cars that were trying to replace a horse and buggy probably got the same response. "What? I have to stop every 50 miles and put gas in it? It stinks? It dumps oil and crap everywhere? ... These things will always just be a toy for some rich guys who like the novelty." And, at first, they were right. But as engineers learn from those early-adopters the new tech matures and eventually catches up. It becomes a competitive option and then a superior one.

I'm glad people are buying the Volt, Prius, Tesla, and this thing. They can help work out the technical issues so they'll be ready to use when I'm ready to buy.

Electricity is less polluting than gas? Renewable resource? Not yet. I still lol every time I hear that. Majority of this country gets it's electricity from coal...yeah, that's real clean. Lol.

Which bit of math?
The claim that a 14 3/4hp scooter that is 70% battery and likely a curb weight that reflects that competes on a direct level with a big kid commuter scoot?
Or my way light range estimate for a 14 3/4hp scooter?

You don't need to spend anywhere near ten grand to exceed those criteria.

WTF would you know about my knowledge base? Oh, that's right, you don't know squat. You just decided to make a stupid assumption when i didnt jump for joy over the latest object of your spoiled little fanboi parade. Fact is I've probably already forgotten more than you've even learned.

But hey, this looks like a fun game, so here... lemme try.

You clearly know nothing about living in an actual city. Have you ever even left the city limits of that little dung heap you call a town, where nothing is more that 2 miles away, which is a good thing cause you need to hold your nose to get anywhere cause the stench is so bad? Don't even pretend to speak to me about city commuting. You child, have no fucking idea what a city even is. It's also painfully obvious you know nothing about Europe if you think this pile of shit will sell like nuts. It won't, because small, cheap, efficient gas scooters are practically a dime a dozen. The average European isn't going to spend 10k on this overpriced pile of crap, just because it's electric and has your beloved letters BMW on it's side. Really, you need to stop flapping your lips, because I'm assuming they're incapable of emitting any intelligent sound.
