Has nobody yet realised that in the fine print that the range of 62 miles is only acheivable at a speed of 25mph!! Whats the point in that? Thrash it at 60 mph? Where? I&#8217;d be out of juice from J1 M1 before I even saw signs for the M25. Nice looking machine with great perforance but for God&#8217;s sake don&#8217;t go any on it and don&#8217;t go too fast. Very expensive gimic. Think I&#8217;ll pass. Urban electric 30mph scooters are where&#8217;s its at.

It would be interesting to hear the range at 40 or 50 mph, typical speeds in U.S. suburban areas on major streets. My uneducated guess is that the range might might be 35 miles at 40mph or 25 miles at 50mph - still absolutely adequate for most commuting. Especially if one can recharge while at work. The advantage of the speed and acceleration over the 30mph commuter scooter is that one can accelerate and merge with auto traffic much more safely. Cut the price in half and I&#8217;ll buy one.

Finally! An all-electric vehicle with enough range for daily commute, that can keep up with traffic, and is street-legal and available in the US.

Sounds like this thing could beat my hugh gas eater! Great to see alternatives for the motorcycle industry being taken seriously. Granted, we&#8217;re not building them, but glad someone is balancing the scales a bit. Great piece.

Claiming range of 62 miles with small print telling us it is calculated at steady 25mph is just barely short of fraudulent, as far as I&#8217;m concerned. In actual real-world use I would expect a range of some 30 - 35 miles. The other problem with the Vectrix is the cost. Here in Australia it is supposed to cost over 17,000 A$. to put it in perspective, this will buy you a Triumph Tiger (A$15,990), or more to the point, at least two 250cc scooters with similar performance and suffering no issues with their range. In short, I certainly am *not* excited!
