47Moto was started by Mike Samarzja, a long time Buell design manager. The design definitely shows the EBR influence. The first bike, the Mosquito looks like an absolute blast! Boasting 90mpg and up to 90mph, adjustable foot pegs, and intelligent EFI.
The site promises future bikes, including the Firefly, a City-X Adventure bike! That definitely sounds (looks) like small version of my favorite bike, the Buell XB12X Ulysses.
This looks like it could be the perfect bike for my needs.
I hope they will be able to offer affordable bikes with great features and not become another failed start up.
