After looking at the some of the top brand companies, I can see that spending high cost dollars was not for me. Since I work about 30 miles away and the average speed limit is 35 to 45 but everyone does 50 so I needed a scooter that would have about 35 mile range at speeds around 50 and one that allowed me to carry a charger on board. I contacted a guy at Environment Friendly Store http://www.environmentfriendlystore.com/ who happened to also be the owner because this company only carries the ZEV machines. He did not hesitate but to refer me to ZEV Corp and suggest the ZEV 4100 would best suit my needs which was also in my price range. I read some info in the forums about ZEV and this is what was said. “Our company is a spinoff of our engineering business. We get hired to solve the problems of other companies and to design EV.” After doing some more reading, I found ZEV is a group of hard core aerospace and mechanical engineers and business people that banded together to prove they could outflank, out design, and outperform everyone else in the alternative fuel vehicle market. High performance and sophisticated engineering is spoken here. Then after talking to the ZEV Chief Engineer, he also suggested the ZEV 4100 either in Lithium or Lead batteries and then with a second conversation with EF Store, I choose the 4100LA. I decided to make the purchase through Environment Friendly Store, hence, I had double tech and customer support from both companies and ZEV’s two year warranty! I can say that I would classify my 4100 as an electric motorcycle and so far this EV is giving me the performance that I was looking for and then some. And both companies are top notch and their tech and customer support is remarkable! This is one solid machine and I don’t expect any problems but I am not worried because any warranty issues will be handled in a professional manner. I know this review is about the 7000 and I can only imagine the speed and endurance it must have. I can tell you this, my 4100 will go fast enough to get tickets and by the way, my 4100 is yellow too just like the one shown in this article!

Also there is always the option to use clean renewable electricity.Electric motor: 90% efficient. Petrol Motor: 30% efficient.Electric wins hands down...

I want one badly . matthew.rings April 20, 2010 09:55 PM This would be a huge hit in Japan, where I\'m at. Tons of little scooters spewing tons of pollutants... this would help take a bite out of that, and also save a lot on the noise, which can get loud with a \"gang\" of scooters which all sneak up to the front of the cars at the stop lights. It\'s a bit humorous as they all anticipate the green light and roar off as a huge pack like some racing event.... fastpart May 19, 2010 03:25 PM i saw this article and tracked down zev to see and if possible ride thier scooters. they don\'t look fast sitting there but WOW was it. it had instant torque and great acceleration. i met the owner of the company at his testing track and he and i rode the scooters for a few hours. he says they will do over 70 so i had to test it. i got as far back on his test strip i could got down as low as i could under the wind screen and punched it i pushed it all the way to the last minute before i ran out of strip to run on i hit 81mph and had it was still trying to pull. i was very impressed. i am looking for a drive train for the egrand prix and i found what i am looking for. with some new stuff he is working on and some stuff im working on i think we can make a good race bike. the bike rides like a dream smooth and quiet. i want one just to back and forth to work on. if your looking for a fun practical comuter bike this is it. Facebook User July 1, 2010 02:02 PM Guys, please stay away from this P**. We have the same motorcycle down here (Brazil), but it\'s called \"Dafra Laser 150\":http://www.daframotos.com.br/site/content/home/I bought one brand new, and it didn\'t last 6 months. Don\'t get me wrong, it is a great bike to ride, but its not reliable. dhz December 13, 2010 02:39 PM The Facebook User in Brazil must not be able to read. The GIZMAG article is about a fully electric bike called a ZEV made in the USA. He refers the reader to a gasoline powered 150 cc Chinese bike that he says he purchased in Brazil, then claims them to be the same. He refers you to a web site showing a gasoline powered bike with a big fat muffler. Clearly and obviously not even remotely the same bike in even the most vague or oblique manner. Checking with ZEV will how that no ZEV has ever been sold in Brazil or to anywhere in S America and no resales of used bikes has yet occured.
