Maybe everyone's heard of this already...
I've had mine on order since January 19th. Don't know why they take so long to build them. Frustrating. Supposedly I will have it some time in May.
I've got a little electric scooter to play with in the meantime and I gotta say, the power delivery is going to be pretty sweet on this. Even my scooter does wheelies
Yeah, it's pretty 205... and they look like fun, but oh lordy, the price!
I added up the pricing, given the older years (Electricross Drift) parts breakdown and what I've found elsewhere..
PERM132 (zero's upgrade) Motor+controller $1500
CRF seat $100
About $4400, then add the other BS such as foot pegs, bars, throttle, wiring, plastics, final drive.
And of course you need batteries. If you go SLA then it is only maybe $200, if you go Li-Po then it is $3000.
So I would say the bike is overpriced by about $1,000 if you were to buy the pieces for best price and machine and build it. Obviously it's the huge battery price that is the deal breaker.
