2008 Vectrix

Does anyone know if the 2008 Vectrix differs from the 2007 model in any way?

There doesn't seem to be any model-year specific info available on the web. I'll report back, if I find anything, as well.

Cheers

Re: 2008 Vectrix

I saw the model with two front wheels on Jay Leno's garage. That is about the only different thing I have seen.

There is always the lithium battery type or fuel cell model I have heard about.

I would think that Vectrix would keep pretty quiet on new models in favor of selling off the current inventory.

Yeah, the 3 wheeled vectrix is obviously a different Vectrix model than the current MaxiScooter offering.

I actually e-mailed Vectrix sales to get some information about Vectrix in general, and specifically the differences between the 2007 and 2008 MaxiScooter models. Haven't heard back from them, yet. In any case, I'm going to guess there's not much of a difference. Nevertheless, it would have been nice to hear back from Vectrix sales, who are, ostensibly, trying to sell these $10,000 machines. Speaking of which, the Vectrix website does list the following MSRPs, with no mention of any special deals:

2007 North American MSRP — $8795
2008 North American MSRP — $9395

In any case, obfuscation of one's product specs is never a sound business or marketing strategy for high tech devices (not least considering a $600 price differential); neither is ignoring customer inquiries ;)

Has anyone here purchased a 2008 year model Vectrix?

Re: 2008 Vectrix

If I recall all my propaganda, the 2008 production run was only a couple hundred bikes. They made this small amount just so they could have continuous years of production.

So I am thinking that the bikes that come out with a 2008 model year are going to be exactly like the 2007 model year. The people who are waiting for this Fall for their Vectrix are actually going to get 2009 models which I hear are going to be slightly different. New batteries, the 3 wheeled version, the Vectrix lite, etc.
