I've never owned a Nirve, but I've looked at them long and hard and frankly, I'd tend to agree with that assessment. Another you might try is the Felt cruisers, which seem to take to motors much more readily.

Don't get me wrong, I love the Electra's, but I don't think they are easy to motorize. Aleman's comments are spot on as well about the drop outs and coaster brakes. You'll want better brakes at least, on a motorized bike.
