Default Polaris' New e-Bike

I want one.

Polaris jumps into the electric bike market

All Polaris e-bikes use a 450-watt brushless motor and a 29.6-volt lithium ProRide battery. The motor delivers speeds up to 18 mph, and the battery stays live for between 15 to 30 miles of range. Bicycle specs shared by all Polaris e-bikes include a 6061 aluminum frame, SRAM shifters and Suntour front suspension.

To get the most out of the battery, the Arc Regen system captures power lost from braking and when speeds exceed 19 mph and redirects it back to the battery. When regeneration is activated, the motor reverses course and serves as a generator, sending power to the battery.

It's nice looking and I like the specs - should be a hot cake in the tree huger community (if you own a Prius, you have to buy one of these!). However, at $2,500 a piece, I think I will stick with my XR for now.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.
Riding: 2011 Cross Roads & 2016 Springfield
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
