To be fair, most EV motorcycle/scooters are over priced or underwhelming - or both.

From 1971. That's $2266.00 when adjusted for inflation!

Absolutely. I'd say EVs and ET (trucks) are almost equally underwhelming, certainly from a value and convenience view.

For my money electric assist bicycles are the only EV marvels at this point in time.

That electric scooter would be great for riding around my neighborhood.

But all of my scooters that I already own work great too.

I think I will pass.

I'm really glad to see more countries doing what we already knew was inevitable and pushing back their bogus electric-vehicles-only deadlines.

It was no surprise that politicians would believe that they can just snap their fingers and infrastructure would change. These are the guys that tell us a public infrastructure building will take 9 years and then it takes 12 and costs taxpayers three times as much as originally planned (Eglinton LRT in Toronto)...

What's crazy is that average, seemingly normal people, believed (and some still believe) the 2030 claims. Out of their damn minds lol.

Props to the UK and Germany for pushing back their deadlines another five years. I think we will see more countries (quietly) do this.

Shame they had to make these bogus claims in the first place, and that people believe them.

Understood, but we're dealing with unprecedented urgency and we've kicked the can down the road for a good half century. Unfortunately the political and scientific worlds don't work well together.

Oh I'm not saying things shouldn't be done.

I'm saying that the people who created these deadlines and the people who believed them to be realistic are... silly.

No graffiti, camping in public, 💩 on the street or open drug use would greatly improve the environment for humans to thrive

I can buy a stand up electric scooter that goes 60 MPH. Why won't they sell a Vespa type scooter that can do that speed at a reasonable price?

Gracious. A feller could almost get an electric scooter for that price.
