Range: 150 miles per charge (est. EPA drive cycle)
I'd have thought that a target set 25% beyond current (pun) range would be enough, but to triple the reasonable expectations? WOW!
Way to set one's self up for assured 'failure'.
Even at 100 mile range, double almost any other fully electric road vehicle, the result will be failing to reach the insane goal.
I see the purpose of a electric moto being conserving fossil fuel with less impact on environment, sport bikes in general are not particualrly good at neither. I guess I don't understand the reason for designing/creating another "sport" bike with electric motor, the uncomfortable riding position would deter the masses from purchasing. If the performance of the electric motor could be combined with some decent riding comfot, a la scooter style, maybe more people would be into "sport" bikes, or sport type riding.

Something not quite right there . . . first that is a lot of speed for something that small, second there does not seem to be enough space for batteries in that frame to be able to go that many miles, third why is there a hydralic lever on the left AND right sides unless there is a transmission that requires a clutch.
It shouldn't be hard or expensive to convert an existing gas scooter to run alright on batteries, you might lose cargo space but it can't be that bad.
Your typical 150cc scooter makes around 10 horsepower and 8.5hp golf cart motors can be had for under $400 for the most part. You could run that motor direct drive and get rid of that power robbing CVT. Just make sure it's geared well enough to get you up to 55 at the motor's peak hp rpm and give the controller the ability to over-run the motor by a couple hundred rpm for a short time.
