Nice bike (there, I said it):

It's an electric scooter - and for once, someone's come out with electric transport that isn't crippled and hideous. OK, the top speed is 100kph - but it's a scooter; they're usually speed limited to less than that anyway. 0-50 in 3.8 seconds. Range is a little low at 110Km, but for commuting to work or running errands in town it would be ideal.

The video on their website ( ) is quite interesting; the number of parts in the bike is about a tenth of an equivalent petrol powered bike; I've not found anyone willing to divulge a price yet though !
