Apparently a UK start-up plans to reveal their 300cc equivalent electric scooter very soon. Sounds like a lot of bull**** but could be worth watching.

Looks like Piaggio are aiming for the BMW approach - £5622 for a 50cc equivalent with a 60 mile range?

Makes me think of sheep. What is it their coats are called? Oh yes, FLEECE.

Why an i300 it's not FI. e300 would be more appropriate.

Sod the bullshit, all I want to know with any electric vehicle is
1) What's the real range
2) How fast
3) How much
Anything else is irrelevant.

Not really. Depreciation is always appalling so I don't bother thinking about it!

A well looked after ICE bike holds it's value quite well. all things considered.

But what's the state of play with battery technology? A while back, batteries were said to last only a given number of charging cycles (and the stated numbers were possibly optimistic). Since the batteries cost a fortune, if they have a limited life, this will seriously affect S/H values! Or has the technology improved so this isn't an issue?
