    I think a lot of people who are just commuters could go down the electric bike path.

    Stealth bomber is nuts and can do up to 80km/hr. How hard really is it really for the gov to make a customised rego plate, some led blinkers and lights for electric bikes. Mount and away ya go.

    Put out some decent paths and hey presto, less congestion, less smog and get fit. You still peddle while doing jumps and wheelies with ease on your way to work!

    By the way when I was at curtin last year I started riding my pushie and would get there in as much time as takin the bus. Curtin has some pretty good lockups for bikes and showers as well. No competition with the motorbike and splitting in regards to time but if I could ride an electric bike at 80km/hr and get a recharge then it would equal out. No more than 70km/hr maximum the whole trip

    Ninety nine percent of the people in this world are fools. The rest of us are in great danger of contagion.

    The auto manufacturers are holding the electric cars back by making them gay as aids in the style and performance front. When they start releasing decent looking cars that out perform the ICE counterparts then the shift will come. Auto makers don't want them because there is not a lot of servicing or repairs needed on them, and as Henry Ford once said "I'd give the cars away for free if you would guarantee me the spare parts trade" now add to that the servicing. It's common knowledge that the workshop is the most profitable part of a dealership

    Nice performance, seems similar in power & weight spec to a ZX10R but with much more torque but again the limiting factor is the range, You could possibly make it from Yanchep to Waroona via the Fwy at cruise speed but then you'd have to wait 1/2 an hour before going home
    The biggest worry would be if you miscalculate on range you're fucked, can't really run to the servo for a can of volts
