Here in Austin, Texas, one of the big sellers of electric-powered two-wheeled vehicles is Alien Scooters. On the floor of the Austin Alt Car Expo, the shop has a large display area full of two-wheeled EVs. Oh, and inflatable aliens.

We've covered a lot of these vehicles in the past (I smiled when I saw the financing available tag hanging from a Vectrix scooter), but I thought you'd like to look at these bikes and scooters nonetheless. I sure wish I had a some extra money right now to get one or two of these. Not only are they fashionable, but bikes are just so hyper-efficient that adding a bit of battery-power to the frame is just a good idea. Are EV bikes, as the company's slogan indicates, "Out of this world transportation" or just good stuff for us earthlings?
