This thing has a Vectrix geared hub motor, and 10 kWh of lithium cells, and weights 660 pounds...the weight of a Leaf battery pack. If Zero built something like this, it would sell 100 times better than a bike.

It looks like a modern version of the 1950's Messerschmidt mini-car.

Close, but it is a dead ringer for the prototype Volkswagon 1-liter car.

The production (250 total) version will supposedly sell for $80-90K!

I bet Zero could build one based on the S ZF11.4 for a lot less. :-)
