    Oh I'm definitely not knocking it as a business decision, it's a great way to go for an upstart: perfect the guts and *then* make it pretty for iPhone buyers. Just not a lot of excitement to be stirred right now with a generic-looking maxi-scooter, while the Fido gets play on gadget and design blogs because it's so unique looking... even though it doesn't exist yet.

    Vectrix's timing was also unfortunate, being pretty early entrants into the electric vehicle game and being too early in their lifespan to endure the Great Recession. They apparently had some cool bikes.
