Treehugger’s report on the new Yamaha electic scooters:

Being hyped as both an Object d’ Art for your home (it folds in half at the press of a button) and zippy commuter (uses an electric ‘smart power’ motor, based on something called the Passol motor unit). Free of petrol and oil apparently. Die-cast aluminium provides the curves and a Lithium-ion battery feeds the “permanent magnet synchronous motor“

Update: Apologies We called these little fellas Honda bikes earlier. Thanks D for spotting that.
