Wow interesting. I'd love to see Honda/Yamaha come out with a good electric scooter. None of this expensive, slow charging, slow, limited range stuff. I've been following electric cars a lot, and there's no reason why they can't come out with a 50cc style electric scooter that goes 150km on a charge with a 1 hr recharge and 70km/hr top speed. They do need the charging stations built though and gas is so cheap for a 50cc that it might be better to focus on bigger scooters that get worse milage like a Silverwing replacement.
