I love the look of this bike. I would totally buy it. I am also partial to the Honda Riding Assist-e as well. I just wish one of these Japanese manufacturers would actually stop playing around a produce one of these concepts that I could actually buy!!

Cute.  But I am not putting any money on Yamaha mass producing and then selling that vehicle to the public.  What I would like to see is Yamaha (or at least one of the big four) displaying and then marketing an actual useful production freeway-legal electric motorcycle.  Right now all I see coming out of Japan are fancy styling and engineering ideas - and of course, Honda's IOM racing machines.  I can only assume that the Japanese feel that the current market for such a machine just isn't there yet, so they just have their engineers and stylists play around with EV concept vehicles to be shown at shows and then stuffed into one of their vehicle museums for posterity.
