Electric motorcycle from Yamaha

Why, oh why, isn't Yamaha importing these to the U.S.?

EC-02, the little electric motorcycle by Yamaha

Well, okay, one reason would be the speed. At 30 km/h speed this thing isn't compatible with most of America's roads. And I would have a hard time calling it anything but a Moped. I have an electric moped, whose max speed is 30 mph, and want something faster because it's not quite compatible with the typical 35 mph speed (which people routinely ignore) on city streets.
