    They've been working on this project since 2002. Every year it seems like they come out with a new concept. I really like the 2011 version, the XL1. Hope they finally produce it at an affordable price.

    PS: the L1 had only 8.6hp. I'm not sure I would want to take it out on the highway.

    Very curious what kind of range this could get as an electric with a battery. Even much smaller motorcycles do not get near this MPG ,must be the drag.

    I'm guessing they will keep redesigning it till it gets 20 mpg and sells for $25,000.00
