Quick Sweet 16EP V2 (2005)

For 2005 the Sweet 16 came out as the V2 version and inline with the EP10 the power train recommendations were reduced to just two with the high voltage and 'learner' setups removed.  This was a fundamental redesign with a completely different frame layout with the basic layout common with the revised EP10 model now called the little Sweetie 10.
