Has anyone heard anything about these --

I am very intrigued by the 80 mile range claim. (One article I read said real world experience should be more like 50 miles but still.) Of course, they aren't sold in the US.

How would this compare to the old 2005 Giant Lite, especially in terms of longevity?
