Well there willl be no need for oil/air filters & oil changes.  There
will still be need for brake and suspension maintenance though this
will be small.
The big question is about batteries, cost, lifespan and charging
times.
What I have been able to learn on this topic is fairly depressing.

Batteries packs for the scooter I'm looking at are $85.00, hardly a
major expense. With two battery packs the charge times are not much an
issue foe me either, considering I drive less than five miles a day.

Maybe cheaper, but not free. The smaller the vehicle, the cheaper it should
be, if mainstream technology.

Have you considered the extra food you would eat to maintain your body
weight and the medical bills from the extra wear and tear on your body from
exposing yourself to UV and vehicular traffic?

The point is once it's paid for, other than regular maintenance, yes it
is free. No gas, no road tax, batteries charged by existing PV. BTW
battery packs are under $00.00, the equivalent of two tanks of gas in
Canada.

You totally miss the point. They are not free, no matter how far you stick
your head up your ass.

I will not require any more food than driving a car, I'd probably lose
weight because you can't ride a scooter or motorcycle and eat at the
same time like is possible in a car ;~) I ride with leathers, no exposed
skin mate, hence no UV. As for vehicles, I've only ever been in two
accidents both times I was in a car, in 40 years of riding never had an
accident. I was trained how to ride by my father, a former motorcycle
policeman.

disorder...LOL
