However, i would buy a scale down version of one those FX bike for city commuting, like 85 cc since 11.5 hp more than suffice. Weight might drop down to 90 lbs too. Anyone who can mass produce it and sell them for less than 1.5k will be rich. An exotic mountain bike(human powered) can cost 2-3k already.
This pit bike 4 stroke 125cc 7hp only cost 1400 USD retail

weight: 140 lb lead acid, 110 lb Li battery.
low maintenance, cheap to operate. (1 cent per mile), low noise, no pollution
check out their videos, http://www.electricross.com/
comparable to a honda crf 125 -150.
cost 5500 US. If this bike can be mass produced in china, likely ~3k

nah......that isn't my cup of tea cooler. it just look like a bike with a air-con!!!! which is a bit ugly!
don't really care about the noise though. so, i still prefer the one with a traditional touch! like those with a kick start gasoline powered engine.

HK has places for gasoline power motorcross to boot around?

for me, if i got some money. most likely, i will buy a street legal supermoto bike. (motocross bike with street tyres). it looks really sexy to me!

this thing is just motorcross with mountain bike tires...what's the special? my lawn mower has the same HP

- 19 hp vs your lawnmower gas engine is 3.5 to 6 hp, electric mower ~ 1 hp.
- electric means it's street legal (with lights add on) where as it's not with gas powered x-cross.
- i rode a mtn bike before, it's no fun when the rider is tired.
- can u maintain 40 mph on your mtn bike for 20-30 mile?
