The future...

The Electric Superbike described in Snow Crash is almost a reality, it just needs "Smart Wheels" as described in the book. Supposedly, 150mph, 140 mile range.

But what I really want is this "B" as a real life size vehicle. The wheel/prop design is awesome.

So when they come whipping by me lanesplitting at 85MPH faster than I'm driving, I won't hear 'em. Yow.

Zero makes interesting motorcycles, but the range is still the killer for me. I may actually buy a Zero as an around-town commuting vehicle, but if I do so, I'll be very clear on the fact that it's a second bike. Thirty grand for the Mission seems a little steep. The Zero S at fourteen or fifteen grand seems a lot more reasonable, and I can buy one today.
