This should probably be a separate thread, but I have to agree with the Scootervillian on this Electric Maxi. I was prepared to be mild to lukewarm on it but... RIDING IT changed all that. It's truly FUN. A couple of things amaze and amuse you, the first is the "silence" when you take off, then you notice the acceleration curve when you roll on the throttle at 30-40-or-50 mph. It's crispy now (even when riding two-up!) just wait until they get the lithium ion battery.
My favorite discovery with it was rolling the throttle "backwards" when coming to a stop and charging the battery. Before long you never use the brakes at all (they are there for a panic stop only) but you get huge smiles/gallon by hearing the generator stash all that kinetic energy back into more go juice~

Anyone see scooterville on the news last night? Sales from 60 a month to 40 a week? Wonder how many of those are 49cc scooters. What's the price tag on the Vectrix? I seem to remember reading it was a bit on the high side.
