And then there’s the price. The FZ-09 is right at $8,200, and we can assume since Yamaha has been in business quite a while that it makes a profit building a relatively simple machine. In contrast, the Elio specifications show a fully enclosed body with rollover and side-beam protection, airbags, safety glass windows, two automotive seats and belts, and a five-star automotive crash rating. The luxuries include a stereo, electrically operated windows, heating, and air conditioning. Will this sell for $6,800 and make the company a profit? Only on planet Elio.
