    What's up with Roehr Motorcycles?

    The website for Roehr Motorcycles has been offline for a couple of weeks. Anyone know what's up?

    Hello Folks,
    Just want everyone to know that Roehr Motorcycles LLC has officially closed its doors. The most significant factor was the week economy. There was plenty of excitement and interest in the EV field, but unfortunately not enough that actually translated into sales.
    I'm still optimistic about the future of the electric motorcycle, however, unless the economic conditions improve for working class people (the majority of motorcycle owners), and significant improvements in battery cost and power density, it's going to be a while before an EV manufacturer can become sustainable.
    Thanks for everyone's support, I hope to be back one day

    That's a serious bummer Walter. Good luck with your future endeavors.

    BTW, did you get rid of your e-components? I bet some folks here would be willing to pay a fair price for your stuff.

    Very sorry to hear
    it's so true average folks (me included) are just trying to keep the roof over our heads, food on the table and keep the kids in school.
    If you're not selling to the government or the rich on an international level - well its super hard, not impossible but hard.

    good luck Walter, I wish you the best
