    Yeah, it may seem lame, but it's actually practical as short-jaunt transport as you can keep it by the front door for a quick nip down to the shops. Then you can fold it and carry it with you rather than trusting to locks and an absence of arseholes. Also fits in pretty much any boot.

    Also happens to be the only EV I can afford at the present and it costs nothing to charge via the solar.

    Also happens to be a monkey-ton of fun as it will hit 45kph and the brakes actually work (including regen via the motor)



    ...and has all the bling



    ... not my house, I just felt I could add to their Xmas lights.

    My seemingly innate ability for stoppies was reinforced today when I dodged around an NBN pit and hit a patch of soft sand that dug in the front wheel and sent me over the bars. It must have been impressive as the NBN guys ran over to see if I was OK, but I couldn't stop laughing at the absence of pain or damage and my stupidity. I guess I still know how to fall

    Singapore company called Falcon PEV. Their local gear is restricted to 25kph for local laws, but they de-restrict for export. Pretty good to deal with.

    There are 2 models above - Zero 10 at 800 watts, and 10x with dual 800 watt motors - but the weight makes them impractical for what I wanted, they're not really luggable. Also, 70kph on a 10inch wheel scooter is plain nuts More power is always good (for hills) but even the 500 watts can catch you out considering you are standing and really shouldn't be relying on the bars too much to keep you on the deck, so you have to lean forward and backward for throttle and braking - and this will stop faster than your body can in a standing position. Try an e-brake at 45kph...... yeah, nah. It certainly improves your road-craft and awareness

    If you listen carefully you can hear the sound of orthopaedic surgeons rubbing their hands together.

    From memory those figures will attract the attention of the fun Police on the road.
