If they can really meet those specs I'd consider buying one, when they get here. Although if my math is right their battery is 1/2 the size of a Zero S 7.2 and they are claiming the same range as the Zero in combined city highway driving.


I'm not dropping a 50% deposit to a foreign company with vaporware.

If we're doing skinny little bikes, I'm gonna say Sachs Madass 125. With some cheap suspension upgrades they are a hoot at the kart track. Kinda hard to find.

That's what I want for Christmas - a $6,000.00 motor scooter! A great pit bike for the Porsche 917.

I'm looking for something like this to go with my Derbi GPR -



Aprilia RS 50. There are a ton of hop-ups available for these - big bore, stroker cranks, carbs, pipes.

These guys from the SF area are way into it -

The zero S is 150 lbs more and a top end 30mph faster so I do think the range is doable. That being said I will wait until after they are making delivery or maybe after I get my skully helmet.

There is a rumor floating around that about 2030 all cars and bikes will be electric. I'm wondering where all this electricity is going to be coming from? I think I'll wait until 2031 and get the first nuclear motorcycle. It should be fast and able to go for the rest of my lifetime on a single charge. They are saying it will be able to use roads, go under water, in the air (up to 3.7 miles high), be super quite, and have a half life warranty.

I like everything about it, but the top speed. 30 mph would be dangerous around here.

Britain has banned the sale of gasoline and diesel powered cars and vans after 2040.

As has France

Could be a bonanza for collectors of BSAs, Nortons, Triumphs, Royal Enfields, etc!

I admit to speed-reading the article, but the beginning indicated it was a pledge, not an actual law.

I agree with those predictions. Actually, I think the rest of the world (those polluters) should not be allowed to even have anything but public transportation or bicycles for travel. Even horses, donkeys ,camels, oxen, and elephants pollute when they leave trails of **** (can you say **** on here? If not, I apologize for saying ****.) so they should be excluded for travel purposes. I mean where do these people think they have to go anyway? America (as in North America, between Canada and Mexico) should be the only country to have petrol vehicles owned by private citizens. Even in America (as in North America, between Canada and Mexico) government workers (and politicians who don't actually work) should have to take (and support) public transportation.

Well, we don't all live at the North Pole and run sled dogs. Well, I could put wheels on a sled . . . but I couldn't afford the Vet. bills and dog food.

My reindeer are a bit upset by your quote and ask for you to be put on the "naughty list". All I can say is you have one week to try and regain some "nice" answers to my wonderful posts.
