    If I was still fighting inner-city traffic every day, I'd be looking into this. On top of everything else, that's just a sleek looking bike.

    Electric car will be the future. It's just a matter of how many years until the internal combustion engine goes away. Personally, I think we'd be hard pressed to find a vehicle that uses gasoline on the road in 20 years.

    Yeah, I mean it basically is just a light weight, low power electric motorcycle. 15.5kg, hydraulic disk brakes, belt drive, 9-speed sequential gearbox with a 568% ratio range, 250Wh battery (optional extra 250Wh "water bottle" battery), 250W pedal assist motor. The only downside to this one is the lack of the newer cadence and torque sensing power delivery (more responsive and easier to modulate the power).

    I think it will be a lot longer then that. People still have 20 year cars on the road now.
