Who makes this electric bicycle?

Saw this neat electric bicycle while passing through Berkeley, CA today.

It kind of reminds me of my XB-600 without all the plastic and bulk. Not much storage space, but looks like two people could hop on this. I like how it is thin, and looks like a bicycle. I would be comfortable riding this in the bicycle lane. My current XB-600 looks huge by comparison, and I never ride in the bicycle lane even though technically I can.

There was no sticker, brand or model number that I could see. I think a storage compartment is mounted on the front. Any idea what brand/make this is?

This model is made by several chinese manufacturers f.ex. http://nicom.en.alibaba.com/product/206948959-200690552/TDR48K15_Electric_motorcycle.html

I think this is the original design by a taiwanese company: http://www.e-ton.com.tw/products_detail.asp?le=english&fid=8&pid=160

So first the chinese copy their neighbour and then each other :-)

Wow that was fast. Thanks a bunch!

I guess my next question is, any idea who distributes these in the US?

Boy that's nice looking! And it would reduce the "why is your scooter going so slow?" questions on the road...

Some discussion of it at:

With a video (high chicas/wheel ratio, and precious little info.)

Sounds like the E-Road has the usual build quality, but I sure like the "cool geek" styling instead of the XB-600's "Power Ranger" look, and the price is about right...
