    I like the look of that thing - classic and elegant lines. No weird and wonderful design exercise to show everybody how clever and original you are.

    I still would love to see a Honda Ruckus converted to electric.

    I'd buy that to replace my Aprilia scarabeo in a heartbeat.

    This is what we used to drive when I was a teenager... Would love me an electrified version of it!

    Interesting, but is it 62 real miles, or 62 NEDC miles?

    I suspect the latter, or maybe some Chinese standard. thre does not seem to be enough battery on board for that to be EPA miles.

    Considering how many they make in China, it's probably ok.
