ST replacement ???????

1971 CB750K2
1980 XV750
1977 GL1000

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
I believe in the "hereafter", every time I go to the shed I have to think "what am I here after"

Doesn't come close. Sport bike yes but as tourer it's severely lacking.

Yorkie is having a laugh.  At this stage, these electric bikes don't really replace anything- they're a niche of their own, especially with their limited range and relatively slow recharge.  At US$38,000 Leno is also having a laugh- "Oh, just that much, I thought it would be more than that!"
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

The look and performance is pretty impressive, and it's cheaper than a new GoldWing.   :thumb

Should be.  It has only one gear and the top Wing has 7!    :grin

Thanks Yorkie. I really enjoyed watching the video.
Increase the range from 160 km to 600 km (max distance before taking a compulsory break on IBA rides), equip garages with charging stations and I’d buy one for US$38,000. I doubt I have that many riding years left in me before that happens.
