$1,250 for a Greenbee Metro 2 Electric Motorcycle ($2,500 Value)
The Greenbee Metro 2 converts electrical juices into 1.5 kilowatts of power, propelling riders at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. The zero-emission vehicle requires no gas or oil, instead collecting electricity from a standard 110-volt outlet for 2.5–4.5 hours before hitting the open road. Riders should check with their local DMV for guidelines about registering their vehicle before taking it for a spin. Customers can pick up motorcycles in pure white, shiny black, golden gray, or transparent red at the store in Livermore, or have them delivered for a flat $350 fee. Customers may test drive prior to purchase or while waiting for their order to process. Test drives are available Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–2 p.m., and Saturday by appointment only.
Greenbee Electric Vehicles Technology
Greenbee Electric Vehicles Technology has dealers up and down the California coast who can point to a way around the colossal carbon skid marks left by gas-guzzling vehicles: zero-emission electric motorcycles designed for inner-city commutes and quiet enough to sneak up on housecats. Two Greenbee models, the Metro and Metro 2, feed on electricity from a standard 110-volt outlet, instead of depending on fossil fuels for their energy. But the petite motorcycles don't sacrifice speed, still zooming along at up to 60 miles per hour without smogging up city skylines. They're equipped with a backseat and a pair of fold-out foot pegs, too, in case drivers need a gunner to man the rear confetti cannon.
