Ah, good point. 60 miles at 3.3kWh is 55Wh/mi--pretty much unheard of at anywhere near 60 mph. Even their conservative 35 mile "economy" range is 95Wh/mi--you'd probably need a streamliner bike at 35 mph to get that number.

A Vectrex VX-1E has a 40 mph top speed and gets 20-30 miles "under normal riding conditions" out of a 3.12kWh pack. Take from that what you will.
