I could only find a topic about 2013 Zero bikes, and that seemed a bit too specific, so here's a topic for all electric motorcycles and road-capable scooters. I started, back in 2002, with an Oxygen Lepton electric scooter. They were overpriced when new, and limited to 28MPH (indicated, 25 actual) but they turned out to be fine little Italian (not Chinese!) scooters. I sold mine about 10 years later, still with the original AGM batteries, because I had acquired a Chinese XM-3000 that would do 45mph! It also arrived damaged, and died for good after about 3 fairly fun seasons. I replaced that with what should have been a great bike: a ZEV 5000LA scooter/motorcycle that would nudge just past 60MPH, was full-sized, and had a real suspension. Alas, that bike arrived badly damaged in shipping, and I foolishly allowed the "manufacturer" (it's actually one guy and a helper who assembles imported parts in an old hangar) to refurbish it with the insurance settlement. The bike was never perfect, it was plagues with a shaky front end, and I just unloaded it, not running, for $800, having paid $4k for it just a few years ago.
Now for the good news, I hope! I just put a deposit on a 2015 Zero SR demo bike. I'll be biting my nails down to the wrist while it's in transit across the country...

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
