Walking into the line of fire here...I’m the designer for Spark Cycleworks in CT. We are working on our 2nd gen emoped. As someone that also rides gas, I’m constantly torn. I love the sound, smell, and work that it takes to keep my older mopeds going. There’s a sense of pride there. However, I love electric because I can just jump on and go. No maintenance and I get about 40 miles on a charge. My gas moped has gotten love through caring for its motor. Whereas my electric has gotten love through customization. Take it for what you will, but I end up riding my electric more than my gas motorcycle and moped combined because it’s never broken down. I’m happy I stumbled on this thread, if there’s anyone that lives in CT and wants to talk design, I’m all ears.
