    That's exactly it. In a few years time, I project that price will be 10% less and efficiency will be 25% more or better. So, furthermore, what will that do to the value of what you buy today? More than 50% depreciation in 2-3 years time. And that's an absolute sickening thought after committing to spending 10 grand on something.

    SO this got me thinking...i should look at a used one. After looking at used prices, might as well buy new. With the rebate, some of the 1-2 year old ones they are asking basically the same price. The few 4-5 year old ones i found appear to be about 50% of new price. But also offer less performance.

    Guess i compare to to the sportbike shoot outs of the late 90's- early 2000's when everyone came out with a totally redesigned bike every 2-3 years. Going to guess those depreciated 50% in 4-5 years. I don't think they do as fast now as not as many new models these days, but id on't really pay as much attention anymore either.

      I'm not sure about any of this battery tech crap.....
      I like the idea of electric bikes - like the Brammo Empulse - uh, I mean the Victory Empulse - now defunct.

      Here is an interesting read - about the guy that brought you the Lithium battery - and his last (he's 92) big idea.

                This is interesting: Used Zero dirt bike, needs a battery pack rebuild, $685. One of you guys should snatch that up and get it going.
