Gee, I wonder where the weak point will prove to be...hmm, no - it can't be the front axle where it attaches to that stoopid monofork...

Thats when you get artists designing stuff rather then engineers.

Chalo should have some comments on this.

Given that every car and truck in the world uses a similar axle system - I bet they can make it work.

If it can work on four axles for a 5000 lb car, it can work on one for a 250 lb scooter.

I'm surprised it doesn't appear to be a folder -- most people have embraced the "last mile" idea with regard to auto transportation wherein you need "something" to get you through the last mile of your journey. Presumably, such a device would be in your trunk. Perhaps this is smaller than it looks though.

EVs have fewer externalities than ICE vehicles. In the long run, it is the only way forward.

It looks like a folder to me, albeit one with an odd design (which seems to be its reason for existence).
