My suggestion, probably a year [or more] ago by now, was a Vespa motor scooter converted to a single-wheel trailer. Always in high gear with choke cable throttle control.

As an ICE-powered sort of range-extender for the Arcimoto? Maybe some variation of the Honda Cub could fare better. Well, they even have EFI and some are flexfuel now

Here is some more footage of the roadster. I was looking at what you could buy comparative gas and the Can-am Ryker at $10,000 for the small motor single seat looks to be the closest. If they get this under $15,000 it will be a no brainer, electric will just be icing on the cake. Most reverse trikes are over $25,000 all the way up to $75,000.

Somebody on Reddit captured these screenshots from the webinar. A full cab version, a pickup version, and something that shows the low cost lightweight "platform 2" targets. I think that leaning trike technology is going to that $3000 electric scooter that is the platform 2.

Smart move on their part to go with Corbin seats for the roadster. (Like Recaro is to cars.)

Fascinated to see the stock price dropping as of today - for no legitimate reason. About to start buying it.

I think this guy is on the money with the analysis.

I'm stuck at 24:24 in the Webinar. There appears to be an Admin/Rental center on Blair St. down from their original location next to Tacovore. I should go check that out, I went past the new manufacturing plant on Tuesday.

I told my neighbor with the lime green pedal tricycle, to start saving: $2K, 3kWh, 35Wh/mi. for Version 2.

Well we have been discussing the reason why it's a poor long position to take in the previous pages... and then there's this.

The better question is how did the stock gain 1000% in 1 year, and why has it only corrected slightly recently?

Can this be recharged while driving? The Tesla can't.
