    Is this an electric motorcycle?

    Personally, I am not so sure. There seems to be something missing.

    If it has bicycle wheels, bicycle brakes, bicycle shocks, bicycle hanlebars, it is a bicycle. If it's not a bicycle because it doesn't have pedals, then it's a scooter. It doesn't look like it would be able to be licensed for road use. And, where I live it won't be an electric bike without the pedals, so you wouldn't be able to ride it on the road at all.

    Now here is one that actually looks like a motorcycle and it is available for "pre-order". I bet they send you a thumb-drive containing computer pictures and specifications of the vehicle when you order one.

    The electric motorcycle concepts just keep on coming.

    How about this one? It had pedals, but lots of motorcycles did back then.

    That that is what I call a moped with a low center of gravity. Nice job for the depths of the Great Depression.

    The Novus is only $39,500! Wow! $3,950 would be a more reasonable price for a little bike like that.

    Makes the Livewire seem like quite a bargain! Buy an overpriced Harley and save ten grand! 😐
