It'll confuse a lot of potential buyers: just where does the fringe go?

It's not a motorcycle, it's "art!" I'd rather take a happy tree painting and pocket the difference, thank you.

Looks like a wagon-load of horse crap: not the vehicle, the whole presentation.

Hah! Those whacky Germans are at it again. ONLY 281 mph @ 44% power? And "Giant Radio Robots Play Ice Hockey At 300mph!!" (from Bruce McCall's Zany Afternoons - don't get me started again....



But they make it so easy.



Do I smell investment opportunity? After all, don' we need some losses to offset those gains in this "terrible" economy?

I've already seen a similar vehicle on Discovery Channel a long time ago. That one was gas powered though.



The thing I don't like about them is that you sit in it like a car?! What's the point?! If I want to sit and drive it like it's a car, I'll drive a car.

Interesting design exercise. However, it won't probably have as much impact as the Segway (snicker) Remember the internet chatter and prehype about how the Segway was going to be the next revolution in personal travel. Put this one in the 3 wheeled car category.
