Green Motorcycle?

Go read the article. I don't see any mention of distance. Just that it weighs half as much as a standard scooter and has huge amounts of torque to leave other motorcycles at the light. But a top end speed of 50mph? And an explanation that it can't have gears because it uses a motor?! Sigh.

To me it's a good proof-of-concept vehicle. I'm glad it will be on sale in a few months. It's a short step to powering both wheels to get maximum traction and a computer to keep the wheels from losing that traction. From that point forwards it's the future. Only small refinements like suspensions, efficiency, solar panels, changeable parts, power supplies and adapters, etc..
