I've been lurking on this site for a while and I appreciate all the posts and experience everyone has shared. So now I'm gearing up towards my own purchase. I'm looking at the XM-5000li and comparing it to the Vectrix VX-1, and it seems to me that the X-treme bike beats or meets the Vectrix in every performance spec, but comes in at about $4000 cheaper. I'm fairly young, but I've been around enough to know that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. So what am I missing here? What does the Vectrix provide that is worth the extra $4000? Reliability? Warranty? Local dealer support?
Any insight would be appreciated.
