My Vx-1 works perfectly and is really fun. Im very happy with it after 1958 Kms, in 2 months. I have, really, used it every day since then and have done my daily commute with absloutely no reliability or range problems.
The only thing is that it makes too much whine noise and plus that noise is horribly uneven. It simply doesnt sound normal. I thought that it would reduce itself and that the gearbox would have settled and stop the uneveness, but no, both have become worse.
The noise is louder and the uneveness is slightly worse, looking as if its going to become worse.(For the moment Mik was right!)
So, i took it to have a check-up and get comfirmation if the noise comes from the engine or the gearbox.(I know thanks to V that its 90% surely the gearbox)Ive asked them to get it changed.
Now, using my Honda 90cc scooter makes me feel awkward and uncomfortable.Im not going to go into detail of how bad it is to go back to an ICE scooter (vibrations, smoke, noise etc.. etc..) simply i miss my Vectrix and hope that the Vectrix Service dont reply saying that the company has dissapeared from the surface of the earth and that i can go pick up my beautiful electric collectors item and never bring it back!
I really wish Vectrix survives, if this is the first thing they can do i really want to see the rest, but not in a desperate recession climate(Lead Acid,E-max etc..)
