    How often do you ride more than 200 miles on a ride?

    My current commute to work, when I go into the office, is about 50 mostly highway miles one way, 60 depending on my route. Round trip that's upwards of 120 miles. I would want a third more capacity to feel confident in not getting stuck without a decent running charge. So 200 miles is my personal metric for any electric bike.

    "...The two electric motorcycles basically represent the two ends of the reasonable-use spectrum for every day driver e-motos..."

    Uh, yeah... but there is this,

    "...Berk reports that the City Slicker has a build quality that defies its low price tag..."

    Nice comparo

    Yes, nice comparison. Something in between would appeal to me. I do not ride on the highway much, but would like to be able to if I had to. But I do need as much as the Zero provides.

    80 mph top end, 100 mile range would be nice. Anybody know of something like that?
