Scooting around in style

Vectric Electric Maxi-Scooter

Another way to have the date of a lifetime in Rome while saving on gas.

The Vectrix Electric Maxi-Scooter, as the tree huggers at pointed out, will debut this November at the 64th International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan.

The electric scooter, which runs on a rechargeable nickel metal hydride battery, gets 70 miles to the charge, and does a top speed of 63 mph, according to Vectrix specs.

I am sure plenty of urbanites will take to scooter, but who is Vectrix hoping to reach with these marketing photos? The guy in the Saville Row suit looks like he would be more interested in the James Bond playset.
