Design News Magazine recently ran one of those irritating multipage articles about "Six Electric Motorcycles That You Can Buy In 2019." The six are Zero's SR/F, Harley's butt-ugly Livewire with an MSRP of $29,799, the Italian Energica Ego at $22,565 and 9 dealers spread at the far reaches of continental North America, the $38,888 to $47,000 Lightning LS-218 Superbike, KTM's off-road-only Freeride E-XC ready-to-race at $8,299, and the New Zealand-based Ubco 2018 2x2 a two-wheel-drive scooter/thing with an MSRP of $6,999.
I don't know about you, but the ONLY one of those motorcycles I could afford to consider is the Ubco. With a top speed of 30mph, the Ubco is a moped, not a motorcycle. The Ubco's 75 mile range puts it in moped territory, practically speaking.
