It is defiantly the future, i felt they were on the cusp of having a lot of new customers. Give it some fresh new technology and someone will build a great 1, and soon. I work for a bus company and am currently getting ready to build an all electric bus in a couple weeks, the battery technology has changed every month foe the past 2 years. We will be offering it with 3 different type of battery packages from 3 different manufacturers. And they can charge from 15% to 75% in 15 minutes. Alto will find a buyer/s or get new investors and they better quickly before ktm and yamaha have something rolled out or they will be well, what they are currently

I think if they moved out of the Bay Area and up North they would have cut about 1/3 to 1/2 off their labor costs...
Sad to see them go.. It is the future..

This company seems like a natural fit for Tesla. Electric street bikes to complement its cars, and electric dirt bikes to go in the back of their new pickup trucks.
