I've been interested in this bike since the first time i saw it. I am still wondering why they don't produce a faired bike that is more aerodynamic.... Its a very pricey machine as well.

What kind of Wh per mile do most motorcycles see?
Well, my Ninja 250 gets 100mpg. That converts to 366Wh/mile. For 42 miles, it would be 15kWh.

They are claiming it is 5 times more efficient than a toyota prius. If that's true, given the prius gets around 50mpg out of the box with a normal driver, lets say this bike gets an equivalent 250mpg. That coverts to 146Wh/mile. For 42 miles, it should only need about 7kWh.
