I'd like to know the range of that thing. Looks like the snowhawk. Those specs sound too good to be true, if the range is there, you can kiss the gas powered sled goodbye

looks great....the only limiting factor will be the price, It looks kinda dangerous for the inexpierienced rider, how much does it weigh?  For a battery that can make a machine go 120 mph, it's bound to be extremely heavy, or will run out rather fast.

Probably fun for about 20 minutes.  Then the battery runs out.  It can't last that long.  Sound pretty interesting though.

Ok you guys tell me how you interpet this.  Onboard recharging system, never fill up, never plug in, never run out.  Are they trying to say that it recharges itself.  I don't see how that would be possible seems against what i learned in physics.  Or am i just reading it wrong.

ZR500~ The only way that it would have a self recharging power cell is if it had it's own mini nuclear power plant. I'm starting to wonder if it's real or just a joke. Come on, 178 lbs, surround sound and can go to 120 mph, i'll have to see it to believe it

on board charging ,I am sure refers to having the charger hard mounted and wired so all you have to do is plug in and not hook up a charger also.

Ac I would get one but I don't think I could fix a nuclear power plant on the side of the trail.

There is no way this thing can be .... Looks like a motorcycle with a few computer tricks . And 178 lbs   hahahaha   The electric motor will weigh that alone ..... then there is the batttery pack .  I know they are working on fuel cells but they are not that small and lite yet ....

I read all these negative posts here.  Were would the spot be if no one took a chance?  Look at the RX1 look at the Rev and those are just recent ideas.  I hope this snow bike thing works out for these guys.  I’m not sure yet if Id buy one, but with all the options and features it offers Id sure think about it HEAVY!!

So many skeptics  
will see in September hu?
