These people from GreeneMotor brought out a number of motorcycles and scooters that they converted entirely to electric power.  They claim that you can ride 450 miles on a single dollar’s worth of juice — even at California rates.  Thumb your noses at the Prius crowd — you’re really green now.  At least you’d be the first person on your block with an almost totally silent ride.

    NOW you are talking and I just checked their site and they offer LED headlight options. Very cool. How about interviewing some of these guys in a future podcast?

    Those batteries full of lead, cadmium, nickel, and acid … they have absolutely no environmental effect, right? Neither does generating the electricity they consume, I’ll bet. Funny how the “green” camp always likes to ignore these things.

    From their website:
    • Warranty: One year exclude physical damages and the wear and tear items (tires/bulbs,etc.) battery warranty is limited to 5,000 mile or 6 month, whichever occurs earlier.

    Hope that battery lasts a hell of alot longer than 5k or 6months.

    does anyone notice that they only have a 40 mile range? and their specs dont include how long it takes to recharge it? Plus its 40 miles depending on the weight of the rider…so what a 260lb guy would only get 20 miles? or less? seems like a waste to me, props for the idea, but until they can approve the range ill be sticking to gas.

    I could definitely go for this if, as the other comments indicated, they could improve their range. I have a 1 mile commute to work and sometimes walking/biking just isn’t a realistic option. I’ve been considering a vespa, but this gives me a reason to hold out.
