The elephant in the room is that bigbird has said nothing about his new light bee. :think: I can't wait to see what it looks like the next time I see it.

I haven't investigated this much but it looks like the charger for the KTM must be plugged into a 50Hz power source and they're saying in the reviews that it takes a special power outlet at home to charge it.
It's surely not 50Hz for use anywhere in the US. It is 240v only. So the "special" outlet is like a dryer/oven/welder connection. Not a typical 120V plug. Most decent sized generators have a 240V outlet to run well pumps or RVs. Standard 50A RV outlets at camgrounds have 240V avail (the smaller 30A ones are 120V only) KTM specs 80% recharge in 75min. IIRC its a 3.6kWh pack. You need the higher power outlet to charge that fast.

Sweet! And then there were three (Granville, myself, and bigbird.) Here is what my LBX looks like now... (need to extend the kickstand to account for the larger wheels/tires.)
