Just to prove that it's possible, here's an electric bike 'motorbike' that will only set you back $2000. Unfortunately, it's tiny, somewhat ridiculous looking, and will only take you 40 miles on a full charge. Oh...and the top speed is 18 mph.
So, yeah, that's why they're only selling it in Japan. It certainly wouldn't take off in the states unless we completely re-thought motor-vehicle travel. Basically, it's an all-electric mo-ped. Though, now that I've said it, it kinda makes me want one. At least people would stop and check me out when I "sped" by.
