    At $1,752 US, it isn't very attractive. In addition, lacking pedals or any provision for non-powered use, it doesn't qualify as a bicycle. It is, in effect, a very limited range electric moped, and in most states here would require registration, a motorcycle license to operate, insurance, etc.

    I don't see anything good about that thing.
