It's pretty hard to beat the small/medium gas scooters. The Honda Helix (250 cc) will cruise at 60-65 mph, make 75 mph on a good day with a tail wind and get 65-75 mpg on regular unleaded - depending on whether you're wringing it's neck or not. Gas tank holds 3+ gallons, maintenance is minimal and only uses 1 qt. of oil at oil change and has luggage space (trunk). Carries 2 bodies easily. Pretty though to beat. If I had to guess, the e-Beemer will be in the 8K+ range. A good Helix is around 2K or less. I'd think you'd have to be intent on "making a statement" to buy one.
