Americans are resilient people. Despite hard times many Americans remain confident about the future. Consumer confidence is at its highest level since November 2008, according to the Rasmussen Consumer Index
( http://www.polltrack.com/post/812 ). As Americans we value our freedoms and lifestyles. One new product that can help Americans continue to enjoy their freedoms and help out the environment is the X-Treme XM-4000Li.
The XM-4000Li, a certified green vehicle, is an electric moped/motorcycle that travels at a top speed of 50 miles per hour and can operate for 60 miles on a single electrical charge. The XM-4000Li can simply improve your riding enjoyment or it can be used to commute to work. This motorcycle is equipped with 20 lithium batteries. These batteries have a life cycle of 7 - 10 years and can be recharged up to 2000 times. Unlike most electric moped/motorcycles on the road today, the lithium battery does not require daily charging.
Another enticing feature is the affordability of the XM-4000Li. This model is expected to retail around $4,500, which is comparable with the leading gas powered motorcycle models such as Yamaha's Dual Purpose entry level model TW200, Suzuki's standard entry level model TU250X and Honda's Dual Sport entry level model CRF230L. This model also qualifies for the federal tax credit for clean energy vehicles as outlined in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 on February 17. The US Department of Energy summarized this new tax credit on their website: "For businesses and individuals buying electric vehicles, the act simplifies and expands the available tax credits. For electric low-speed vehicles, motorcycles, and three-wheeled vehicles, a 10% tax credit is available through 2011, with a cap of $2,500". For more details, go to the US Department of Energy website using this link: http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/news/news_detail.cfm/news_id=12248. Consult your state or local authorities as this model may qualify for an additional energy rebate.
Although gas prices bottomed out in December 2008, they have steadily increased in 2009. Worldwide greenhouse emissions are still a vital concern, so electric modes of transportation are an affordable alternative to traditional forms of travel. The X-Treme moped XM-4000Li emits zero carbon emissions, resulting in cleaner air quality. It is significantly quieter than gas powered motorcycles.
Weight distribution is an important factor with motorcycles and street bikes. The lithium batteries are located in a low position under the driver's seat. This keeps the bike's center of gravity close to the ground which gives the motorcycle and rider improved stability and control.
The XM-4000Li, features a new controller design not found on any bikes in its category today. The XM-4000Li has a full year warranty and a two year warranty on the batteries. The X-Treme XM-4000Li is street legal in all 50 states. Orders for this new and innovative electric moped/motorcycle are being taken now, and are available for dealer delivery.
