    This is actually a good alternative to the Taycan Turbo S. At half the price you get most of the tech, you just lose out a little on the torque and horse power.

    Isn't torque the domain of an electric car?

    Yes. this Taycan variant is a tone down version of the Taycan Turbo S, less torque, less speed but it's half the price.

    Wow, entry level electric is really priced at 2.5-3M, huh. Expensive to be an early adopter.

    Don't forget they'll only ride like new for around 2 years ...unless you shell out for new batteries plus costs to change them out...

    It's a normal scooter with a 50km range.

    More than enough for SM North to Ayala Ave commute

    Thank you for the info. Based on that memo, looks like I won't be needing a license or registration for my ebike. Looks like the Drift Motor YPro mentioned above may need a license for the rider & a registration for the emotorbike.

    depends eh. sabi nga nila that AO has many interpretations. Example electric scooter. It looks and falls under "electric kick scooter" but can have a speed that can deo 25-50kph or more.

    medyo dated yun picture and stuff... just my opinion.

    kaya im leaning towards e-bike that has pedal para medyo "safe" sa category.
