Motorcycles don't come with cages. That's a car with a few missing wheels.

give me doughnuts: Other than being a bit more aerodynamic, what's "practical" about a Jag's exterior? You think it looks good because you've been told that it looks good.

It's a mode of trandsportation. Alll it needs to do is get you from point-A to point-B with a minimum of trouble and expense.

It's just food. All it has to do is provide calories at a minimum of trouble and expense. Forget the donuts; here is a tub of wheatpaste.

give me doughnuts: SultanofSchwing: This is why Electric Cars are just bullshiat. They're all designed by asshats. Nobody (well ok maybe some people) wants to drive around in a stupid little pod.

That's because even bigger asshats spend millions on advertising campaigns to convince us we should all be driving BroncMustHemiDakoFuryStangs.

Is it wrong to want something with a bit of practical style to it? Get me an Electric car that looks like a Jaguar XFR and doesn't cost 5x as much as one and I'll buy it today.

Reasons I don't ride a motorcycle: giant cars crushing me to death while their drivers talk on their cell phones. Likelihood that I will screw up and go around a corner too fast

Not reasons I don't ride a motorcycle: it doesn't stay upright at a stoplight

1) That's not an attractive anything.
2) That's not at all reminiscent of Tron.
3) $24,000 is too much for that, even as a novelty.
4) Electric? So it can hit 120mph and go 200 mi on a charge? How far can it go at that claimed 120mph?

It would seem odd to countersteer with a steering wheel.

Besides, where I am going to hookup the drag pipes?
