Considering that I expect to be wheel chair bound in the not so distant future, I found that quite interesting.
Sorry that they limit it to 250cc. I expect that means they use a cheap Chinese engine and drive unit from some scooter.
I would have been more impressed with 650 to 750cc to be able to negotiate long uphill situations.

I live in Hawi on the big island and the nearest town of size is Waimea about 22 miles away over the Kohala mountain road that passes 3,564 feet altitude on the way. 250cc would be at a crawl for much of the way.
16'000 is much over priced for what it is.
They are counting on the fact that there is little or no competition in the market for this type of vehicle to price it so high.

Here is my current disability vehicle.

You picked a great disability bike Phel! Flatfooting with ease and comfy if ya change the stock seat off...I LOVE my Aero and would rather consider sidecarring it than buying a HD....it's just enough power for me and I don't ride crazy fast since I have to watch my speed anyway..I am a bus driver.........
