2 firsts weeks of vectrix

Hi All,

I have been delivered 2 weeks ago .
I've already done 900 km (80 km a day with a smal 30' recharge at the office) and a complete charge every day at home
when I ordered this vectrix I had said to myself , well we will see, in the worst case it will have been an expensive toy with poor range that I will use for shopping in my jammed town center .
I have followed the instructions of the maker as for the 5 first deep discharges .
the result is for the moment far better then what I expected .
My range on my nearly flat urban terrain is 75 km before the bat telltale ligths, for my last deep discharge (once a week asked by the maker) I had to ride an other 10 km before the scooter limited my speed to 25 km .
don't know if it will last long,
given the fact that I will do at least 2000 km per month I will soon know if this scooter is reliable .
for the moment it is a deligth .
the only problem is that it is a human magnetic machine...I spend long periods replying to the dozens of people asking me details about this machine .

regards

Welcome aboard Jean! Glad to see you over here and glad to hear of all your pleasurable experiences (been reading some of your posts over on Yahoo groups).

All those people-magnet discussions that sometimes delay your mission are good PR for the company, and may help to insure that we all will continue to have a "Mothership" for support in the future! Keep smiling and talking!!

We should have T-Shirts when riding our Vectrixs, like RC Helicopter fliers do :D

Hi,
no problem with the magnetic effect, as for vectrix I've normaly already sold 3 vecs...(not me of course)
I have to performe 3 return trips for 3 firends to make sure if the vec does the job for them ...
sure it will do the job but they only belive what they see... Ils sont comme saint Thomas as we say in France , meaning they are like saint thomas a skepticle Saint (((-:
as far as I know in monaco (close to my place) the are selling loads of .
I'have seen a couple of vecs on the road .
it should be a commer├žial success, let's hope that they will survive crises
in addition it is not a normal business, this a true life test on the only serious vehicle of this type on earth, it must be a start up and in my opinion the company value is great and many people will be interrested in investing in this kind of businnes just to get the experienced own.
even if 10 years ago oil companies have killed the electric car, nowday it is not the same, many other companies who don't belong to the oil market are preparing for a near future in long term strategies .
I don't belive that the sales figures are the only condition for this company to survive and for the vectrix to go on,
the vectrix is a test and even if only a dozen of thousand people have it , those personnes are the real tester who will bring the evidence that this scooter is a transportation solution or not .
I am obtimist by nature of course but let's don't participate to the game of the one who are paid to bring alarmist economic new's about this company to kill it .
today many things happend on the internet, and some of the one who speak on forums are professionnals who job is to try to influence the market .
I don't say it is the case on this forum of course , but in other's fields I've had the evidence that some people under fake names were acting to influence the market .
soon all of this will be finished.
In paris the city pays 25% of the electric scooter price... they will sell a lot.
I've recently learn that the town next to mine had bougth 5 for it's police (mairie du cannet if my info are good and I will know rapidly cause I live nearby) .
as corsican say Forza (we will do it)
regards

Re: 2 firsts weeks of vectrix

I have been invited by the Club for Electric Vehicles of Slovenia to have my Vectrix (the only one in Slovenia) shown at the Motor Sport fair in the exhibit of electric vehicles. It's a 3 day event, day 1 for journalists and other 2 for public. My condition was that my Vectrix was not to be touched by the audience. I treat my motorcycles like jewels and I don't like people touching my bike.

I will contact Vectrix in Poland if they agree that I put my Vectrix among other electric vehicles. Who could say no to free promotion :-)

Well, congratulations, you share the world record with Buzby at 85km on one charge!

Buzby got 53 miles (53x1.61= 85.33km), see at: http://visforvoltage.org/forum/4657-vectrix-range-real-world-record#comment-27383

I think the flat terrain is an important factor.

At what speed do you get the 85km range?

And, if you don't mind, what is your weight and height?

This information may be used entirely at your own risk.

There is always a way if there is no other way!

Re: 2 firsts weeks of vectrix

Hi jean, in first place, Welcome and hope you enjoy your bike.
I wanted to ask you about your range of 75km in flat terrain.
Is that with normal or slow driving?
I got 70km maximum in normal 80% and 20% Slow.
By the way do you have any uneven noise whine of the engine, when going between 20km/h and 40km/h??
i have my Vec since the 2nd of Feb.
Thanks
RaDy
