Luna cycle is making much mo' bettah' electric 2 wheelers.  Faster, lighter, cheaper.

https://lunacycle.com/sur-ron-light-bee-mx/ . For example.

The Apex is almost ready for release too.  True kickass.  https://lunacycle.com/luna-apex/

Well, at least he has some legit management people on the team this time. Good luck to him. Again. Maybe for Erik we should just get a rubber stamp that says that.

(I'll have to check out that Luna.)

They spelled the name wrong,
should be Fool not Fuell.   :bigsmile:

I don't know, guess I'm not ready for an electric motorcycle yet. :shrug:
And at my age I probably never will.

I wouldn't call either of these a 'real' motorcycle.
If I had room in my garage, I'd buy a PC800 for as cheap as I could find and convert it to electric.  It'd be great for running errands (I'm retired so no more commuting).

So the count down to the next bankruptcy of a Buell run company begins again? The guy has good ideas about some things, but is clueless about how to make it profitable. Sometimes I wonder if he studied the Indian business model ( pre Polaris) . :headscratch:
