As a street machine it can be licensed as either a NEV (Neighborhood Electric Vehicle) or as a full speed motorcycle. The battery mule exchanges seamlessly at speed meaning no more trips to a nasty gas station or waiting for a battery to charge. The body is also optimized for both aerodynamics as well as safety. The average car uses half its energy to overcome wind resistance at 55mph. The TriTrack Street has less than half the wind resistance of the average car.” 05-12
