Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Ryan asks: I was really excited to read about Elio Motors on your site years ago. I love riding my 400cc DualSport motorcycle for its fuel sippyness and its simple maintenance but the weather has other plans over half the year here in the northeast. I currently live in a state that has no mandatory automobile insurance, yet society has somehow not collapsed. However I’m looking to escape winter hell and apparently in the sunshine state there is a motorcycle exception for insurance which I will gladly take advantage of. So I started looking into trikes for those not so sunny days and found a company called Arcimoto out of Oregon that is starting production on a reverse trike with tandem seating that is very well faired and is supposed to get optional doors in the future. Unfortunately this is an electric vehicle which I’m not a fan of. It is reasonably priced and has enough range to be an economical commuter. My question is this: What are your thoughts on Arcimoto and do you think their vehicle is being green lighted for highway use despite its safety deficiency compared to the Elio simply because it fits the EV agenda?
