Nice looking bike, but the 50 mile range seems a little weak for the weight of it.

Isnt that on par with the gas version? Most bikes only hold a gallon or 3 and get rather poor mpg between the aero, the manner they are driven and modifications to the engine.

Pretty sure all Harleys come with a 5 gallon tank and they should get 50/60 MPGs

Some Hondas come with 3.7 gallon tank, but most bikes ( in the range I am looking in ) have bigger tanks.

My 750cc Ural has 5 gal tank with 1 gal reserve.

I didn't see the range estimate in the article. I did pick up that they mentioned that the dimensions or handling are ideal for city riding.
