I love the concept of electric bikes, just not the bikes themselves. Or specifically, the bike you get for the money. The Zeros are awesome bikes but I cant spend $10k on a bike that can ONLY be in the city because of a 78 mile range (if youre nice).

Once they get that same range but be more like 5 I would have one, imagine no gas and almost no heat in Atlanta traffic, sign me the fuck up. I couldnt sell either of my current bikes though, the MV is too awesome and I would still need the Guzzi for road trips.
The new Zero can go up to 170 miles...

They are expensive for what you get at the moment. I think Harley would have a lot better luck if it had the range of 120-170 miles, as 50 is going to be tough to justify. A lot of people enjoy rides that go out of town a little ways, poker runs, etc., and 50 miles will not usually get that done.
