    400 mile vaporware

    An alarming lack of actual info, but the price and range are nice... I wonder what they are planning to use for batteries?

    Yea... no. I am avoiding giving any money to this one. Or adding them to the site. Or, ****, anything in general except maybe pointing and laughing.

    My favourite is 350 lbs curb weight with 21kwh of battery. Is the rest of the bike made out of helium?

    And how much would you pay for 21kWh of battery from any source? Would 7200 Euros (about $7500 USD) cover the cost and leave you enough money for chassis parts? Apparently these claims are directed at an audience who doesn't know anything about EV technology or its current costs - like the typical press reporter.

    Beautiful rendering and great fantasy. Unfortunately the numbers are exaggerated too.
