A bit of body work would do wonders for the looks of the bike. Wonder what the range is?

One issue that will have to be addressed is how the state gets it road use tax money. Currently that comes from gas/diesel taxes. I get the feeling they will tack it onto the yearly renewal fee's if you use an all electric vehicle.
My guess is some kind of GPS tracking and a charge-per-mile. With the current emphasis on high MPG vehicles the feds and states are already losing highway funds as more MPG = less gas purchased = less highway dollars.
The GPS idea has been floated, and Missouri has already passed a law barring the tracking of vehicles by GPS. The feds could override that, as federal law trumps state law. Problem is that if they can track your mileage with GPS they can track where you go and charge depending on where you drove - bigger charge for a crowded city, driving at different times of day, automatic tickets for speeding, etc.
