They should be able to imagine a 122mpg trike for $4300 with the advantage of being in an actual unicorn cave.
Still won't have twin motors with the differential in software. And torque vectoring through software updates down the road.

I still miss the Edison2 people.

Software differential? You mean two speed controllers with the same torque request?

That would be fantastic... You could mess with that in so many ways to create the ultimate in traction & yaw control

Ask Vic Valdes how much it would cost to built a new copy of his Vetter Challenge 233 mpg bike. I imagine it would be less than $6000 USD.

Already being done in the new Acura NSX as well as a few other hybrid supercars.

Freebeard probably posted that because the Arcimoto has that for not much more than the Elio's target price.

freebeard is probably lower-case even when it starts a sentence.

Probably off-topic in a loser trike thread. Is the NSX autonomous-ready?

Ouch. Like seeing a beautiful woman and wondering if she can keep herself happy

What purpose would the NSX have except for the pleasure of driving it?

I'm on board for the Minimum Viable Product SRK. I think autonomous-ready is a good compromise. It has a smart-phone cradle in the handlebar. Although I could accept the pocket-prison-cell culture and self-employ delivering people's groceries.

Reason #1 for an autonomous NSX? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghost-riding

As I typed it, I knew it was lower case but my english teacher says I have to capitalize the first letter. I should have said, "That was posted by freebeard because..." as to not constrain the beard.
