Default Two Empulse TTs just sitting there...

...at the dealership and I've yet to see one out on the road. I expected to see a few here in Silicon Valley. They're just too expensive for the range. With Victory's EV racing development going on, I expect we'll see a new EV product maybe late next year and there will be a fire sale on the TT. Or maybe there will be incentives after this riding season. If they dropped the price, I'd seriously consider trading in my Honda Magna and using the TT as my daily commuter.

Feet forward bikes are the majority sellers in the US, so why are all the mfrs of electric bikes making 'em into crotch rockets? I too would consider an electric if there were one in the more comfortable cruiser format.

Heck my dealer wouldn't even let me sit on it.
Yesterday while out ridding I cam to a pretty good down hill. So I shut off bike and coasted down. Gut up to 50 mph. All you hear is tires and wind. Kind of fun

I was allowed to ride one around the parking lot (in fairness, it is a big parking lot). As with all EVs, it's torquey. It wasn't silent, though, a bit noisy, probably from the drivetrain. I'm not a fan of putting a five-speed transmission on an EV - one of the advantages of an EV is less, not more, complexity. But, I could live with it - for the right price!!!

That would offset the homosexualness of an electric bike a little...
