if you look at the lines of it, you could chop it into a bobber.

now how badass would you feel pulling up to your local hd dealer on an electric bobber?

I was just looking at that, only problem is 50 mile range, every 45 miles or so your bike would have to stop for a little go go juice. :lol: :lol:

You'd have to find a good speaker system and record a real bike running and play it on the speakers riding down the road, that would mess up the crowds!

This is a neat concept. A little pricey but who knows.......with the price of fuel being what it is. :shock:

It's actually not that bad looking. Kinda cool. But 50 miles really limits you a lot. I wonder what the forthcomeing hydrogen fuel cell sector will bring us. Could be interesting. And yeah, $15grand is kind of a high price for a 50 mile limitation.

Did someone say something about they weight 50lbs and can crush anything in less than 3 seconds while going 30MPH?

Not to re-hijack this thread back from the can-masher lady, but.....

"The Enertia's appeal should spread widely since it lacks many of the traits that traditionally steer people away from a two-wheeled, mechanized ride. It requires no gas or oil, and thus smells like neither"

This statement is a bogus bunch of crap from a writer who knows nothing about modern motorcycles. I've been riding since 1966 on forty different bikes, and not one smelled like gas or oil any more than the family sedan did.

(Ok! maybe my 1970 Triumph Bonneville did a bit when you 'tickled' the carbs on cold start-up, but that was a medieval machine anyway, what with genuine leather pushrod gaskets and all).

It has to be a LOT less than $15,000 if they want me to go green. Sorry- I do try to conserve but MY bottom line has to come into play too.

100mpg scooters are available now for a fraction of the cost. If you can't afford gas for that...well what can I say?

I like it! I have a 35 mile round trip to work. It will be interesting to see what type of models will come out in the next few years.

I really like the idea, but the price, range, and top speed would keep it from being ideal for me. I want something that could hold its own on the highway.

Price has got to come way down.
Heck I thought 5 grand for a scooter was high.

But I do like the premise....be cool for going to work and kids to school.
