    Wow! That is a hell of a machine right there, it just looks like brute force. The whole packaging of the bike is awesome and gives you very nice performance numbers. When will it be available to buy? I like building my own too much to buy one, but I can really see people wanting to buy this if it comes in at a reasonable price (edit - $43k canadian from the faq section on their site).

    Also got any videos of it running? You guys should try to make it out to a TTXGP event and show that baby off this summer

    Oh and welcome to El Moto!

    Welcome and nice looking bike. Killer specs... and price. One of the first customers you should go after is Jay Leno. He's one of a handful of collectors with appreciation of EVs that can drop that kind of cash.

    Yes videos please. And pics with the fairings off. I bet Chip Yates would like to see how they crammed 12kWh into the body without the pizza box

    Wow that thing is pretty nuts. 185 miles to a charge huh? I wonder how many cycles those batteries last.

    I like some of the software development you've incorporated. The idea of a system that makes sure you get to your destination by adjusting your riding in real time is pretty appealing.

    I know a bunch of us would love to see 12kwh take a bike 180 miles. Does look great though and I hope you do well.

    Hi! Great looking bike - I like the bobber / street-fighter / cafe thing...it just needs red wheels

    Do you have a working prototype? Everything on your site looks like CAD, just curious.

    podoefsky - Check the gallery. There's a shot of it out on the street.

    BTW - anyone else notice this: "A powerful electric motor and CVT transmission."

    I'm almost sure that picture is Photoshop. The lighting doesn't look right, and there's no shadow from the kickstand.

    Yeah, I noticed the CVT transmission. That along with this:

    Makes me wonder if it is for real or just another web site for a fantasy machine.
