Sucks-Less Electric Scooter

Hey, this new (to the US) electric scooter looks pretty sweet to me. Any ST scooter riders know anything about it? Here’s some of what what the Treehugger piece had to say on it:

Early reports are quite positive — apparently the claimed performance (speed and range) are accurate and that the build quality is excellent. The batteries use a silicone chemistry rather lead, nickel, or lithium.

The standard E-Max offers a 1500 Watt sealed brushless motor and a range up to 40 miles depending on rider/cargo weight and terrain. The e-Max has speeds up to 30 mph. It will 80% recharge in approximately 1.5 hours. The suggested retail price for this bike is $1,995.
