Suzuki is really getting into electric powered two-wheelers in a big way. :rolleyes:
They are developing an electric scooter. Read about it here:

You can mock, but I bet Suzuki will make more money from such electric two-wheelers than Brammo, Roehr and Zero put together.

Not the police ones though :)

Well, we'll see. I wish Suzuki luck, but I just think they are setting the bar kind of low. That "e-lets" thing reminds me a lot of a Chinese electric scooter. You can't beat the Chinese on price but you can beat them on styling, quality, performance and reliability and I am not seeing much of that in the specifications or looks. I just expected more from Suzuki.

Add "R-e-s-p-e-c-t" to that list, Richard. I mean, riding a scooter is so 1950's... well, at least back then you shifted gears. A two-wheeled ride (electric or otherwise), with autoshift no less, that is for pussies, aaaaarrrhhhh! (isn't today "speak like a pirate day"?)
