Not sure how I feel about this but I do like their marketing/Field testing techniques.

They're going to have to put baseball cards in the spokes to make it sound like a real motorcycle.

I really like my bike the way it is but this could be kind of cool if they don't make it look like a scooter or something. if they make it move and handle like a sport bike it could be fun.

I'll let you know what I think next week in NYC after the Demo

Same problems as any other EV when used for serious transportation...

But damn that thing's going to be fast... 100% torque off the line & all...

They are, IIRC, planning to put speakers on it to make some sort of 'motorcycle noise' as a *safety feature* - apparently the bike is so quiet that you can't hear it coming....

In the videos they posted it sounds EXACTLY like the Lightcycles from the original Tron movie! It'd be worth buying just for that!

With a 53 mile range it MIGHT be good for what most hardley ableson riders do. Bar hopping.

More enthused about the 2015 models.

A liquid cooled 500 and 750. They look right out of a Taiwanese factory. I'm pretty sure the "motor company" isn't making them. WAY too much tech in there for them.

750

500

Looks good.
Not sure how well it'll do in the market.
It's gotta be priced right.
