I see that Arcimoto does not even publish basic specifications, but it does claim that changing the design from steering wheel to handlebars saved 700 lbs. No news about what it did to the precision of steering on a fast, rough road, with the rider being tossed sideways. To paraphrase a popular description of helicopters, this looks like a collection of scrap rolling in loose formation.
There is no excuse for a land vehicle to weigh more than its average payload.
