I want a machine I can't afford and have to make payments on for 10 years. One that is internet connected so I can get emails selling me things based on how far and fast I ride and automatic alerts sent to my insurance company so they can tell me why my rates are going up again. I also want automatic updates like my phone and computer gets so when I want to go out for a ride I find my bike doesn't work anymore. That way I can pull the motor out and re-install hoping that it will work again like new. Then I then will go buy a new bike in two years because I can't get it out of second gear anymore and the engine shuts off every time I pass the dealership.Have NO need for the trick "stand up and follow me" crap. Give me a simple machine that I can afford. I would want metal covers over those batteries to help prevent outside mischief or theft, ventilated as necessary. If that seat includes some kind of "swing arm" suspension in addition to what the rear wheel has, that would be fine too. The designers lost their vision; I hope they get it back.
I absolutely positively agree with you 110%! These vehicles running around with thousand pound lithium batteries make no sense to me whatsoever. My goofy neighbor has a Tesla and every time he backs down his driveway I think the martians have landed. He practically forced me to drive the thing so I did and I absolutely wouldn't have one of those whistle and bell loaded pieces of s&#t.Zero interest in any of this electric crap, car, truck or bike, just political games being played ! Nope !
