Q: Why don't you call the Flux EM1 a moped or a scooter?
A: We did for quite a long time but have found that term doesn't do the Flux EM1 justice. Gas scooters/mopeds are used very differently than the Flux EM1. They are typically looked at as just a small motorcycle, focused on the individual experience. The Flux EM1 is a vehicle built for communities, great for commuting and getting around town. It’s different.
Q: What about riding in the winter in the northern states?
A: Originally, we were quite concerned with winter operation but years of experience have shown that the impact is quite small. We have found that the greatest concern in winter is snow and road condition, not temperature. We can't recommend riding any two-wheeled vehicle in snow, but with clear roads we have a number of clients that ride twelve months a year.
Q: Can the Flux EM1 be titled and registered?
A: Yes. The Flux EM1 has a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and can be titled and registered in all 50 states.
Q: Can the Flux EM1 be insured?
A: Yes, the Flux EM1 can be insured by all major carriers.
Q: Is the Flux EM1 100% electric?
A: Yes. The Flux EM1 is 100% electric. It is not a hybrid and doesn't use any gasoline.
Q: Do you need a motorcycle's license?
A: No. In most states the Flux EM1 is considered a "moped" and a drivers license is satisfactory. Please check with your state's DOT to confirm.
Q: What is the Flux EM1's maximum speed?
A: The maximum speed is 38 mph. Most state's require that a "moped's" speed be regulated to 30 mph, but each state's laws are different.
Q: Is a passenger allowed to ride behind the rider?
A: The Flux EM1 is built for two people. However, you must first check with your state's DOT as each state's law varies in regards to if a "moped" is allowed to have a rider with a passenger or just one rider.
Q: Can I buy an EM1 if I don't live in Wisconsin?
A: Yes. Flux has sold a number of EM1s out of state. We ship it to you and you are responsible for registering it in your state and paying sales tax.
