Looks like fun even though not very polished. What's surprising is the price. I expected it to be much more, $2000 plus $300 shipping.

'02 Honda 919 - She's the only one for me!

That's for placing the order while they ramp manufacturing. $7,450

On a quiet dirt bike you would see a lot more wildlife!

Hmmm. Guess I didn't read very well.

I believe in cash on the barrel transactions... It's nearly a hundred pounds lighter than a 250cc bike, very compelling to a light dirt track rider. Electric motor torque curves are so impressive!

Reminds me of a street bike coming out into mass production this coming year.

Zero was designed by a brilliant mountain bike innovator and outperforms enertia. Without road registration, electric bikes are legally analogous to bicycles. It's an inexpensive commute vehicle. Soon many company extension cords will be running to the parking lot.

With no gauge or lights on the Zero, $7400 seems steep.
Just a matter of time before Razor comes out with larger versions of their battery powered minibikes.

Folks with a suspended license could have bought one with their legal fee. The early adopters of nifty technology covers the R&D cost. With a spirited 35MPG on 9r I'm not in a hurry to buy expensive batteries.

It's going to be a loooong wait for razor, since that's not their market. Their top model only goes 14mph with no suspension.
