Endurance numbers?

The rushing woooosh of electric superbikes. "I think I hear the chain", says Kirk. "No, Kirk, they're cutting the grass in turn 4", replies Ken.

The Superbike is $26 large. Hope the Supersport is a bit more reasonable.

They're showing $16k, which isn't necessarily that bad but the components seem to be budget oriented. I might consider it at that price, but not with lousy brakes and suspension. Then again, they may work very well but just don't need to be as beefy with the significantly reduced weight of the sport model.

Made in America ain't cheap, apparently. The chassis of the Roehrs is borrowed from the Hyosung GT250. Not a bad chassis, but definitely not Bimota!

Roehr says about 100 miles riding around town. Highway travel saps juice, down to about 40 miles of range at highway speeds.

No way. My aircar that folds into a briefcase will be here next week.
