There are two types of green vehicle fans in this world: Those who wish you to know they've picked the latest green vehicle, and those that don't.

Anyone who chooses Austrian firm Johammer's electric motorcycle will peg themselves firmly in the former category.

It is, by quite a margin, the weirdest two-wheeler we've ever clapped eyes on.

Cost and efficiency is what it comes down to for many.

If the economics make sense people well buy.

I have been putting money back for one of those, hoping it will actually make it to market.
Retro concept although they had better styling fifty years ago.

It’s got a range of 125 miles and a price tag of 35K.I personally have a hard time trying to make economic sense of that.Plus,it’s ugly.

I like the Elio. I hope to buy one at some point. Not because they’re green just because they have a great concept. Built from parts you can get off the shelf, projected five star crash rating and cheap to buy and run.

I’d highly recommend you do not ride this with winds in excess of 20 mph. Those crosswinds would be a bummer on that thing.

Love it. Gas-sipping three-wheeled cars make a great second or third car.

All it needs now are clubman bars, a bumstop, get rid of all the plastic, replace the frame with a Norton featherbed frame, drop in a Vincent twin engine, replace the wheels with wire spokes, top it off with a handmade alloy tank and you’ve got yourself a bike. Maybe throw in some rearsets, too.

It’s almost like they styled it to offend.We all know what a cycle is supposed to look like,and that ain’t even close.

If it doesn’t run 100% on gasoline I won’t have anything to do with it!!!

I totally reject anything even close to green!

That’s the bike he built for the Geat Biker Build Off.

I believe it won First Place. It’s highly functional as well as cool looking. He rode it to the Finals.

Every once in a long while they replay that series.
