The Vectrix electric maxi-scooter was released across the pond a few weeks ago, and Motorcycle News was there for its unveiling. Today, we bring you a video that they were able to grab while in attendance. A maxi-scooter is, as the name implies, larger than the average scooter and is capable of higher speeds, faster acceleration and comfort for longer distances. Speaking of distances, plan on about 70 miles or so based on early reports and depending on speed and the use of regenerative braking. As always, your mileage may vary. But, the good news is, no matter how far you travel, you will be doing so using no petroleum or fossil fuels of any sort (well, depending on what powers your grid).

      I've been riding scooters since 1985 and the Vectrix looks good to me. With a 0-60 time of 6.5 seconds only the most determined drivers in the fastest cars could keep up. My 460cc scooter is much slower and I stay ahead of traffic easily. Be careful going that fast, though. No engine vibration and no engine noise must be nice.

      What's the cost on this thing? It would be a cheap way to get around the neighbordhood or quick, short trips to the store, blockbuster, etc. Interesting, tho I'm sure the motorcycle dangers would make the wife nervous.

      $11 grand, wow. Nevermind.

      I'm glad to hear that the Vectrix unveiling actually happened. I had heard no reports, so I figured they had silently slipped their schedule. Now if they can release it here in the U.S. (California, specifically)...
