I’m sure in the next decades this will be the norm. There are a few things I question with this one...... the colored panels below the motor look cosmetic, and the blower in front of the back wheel seems odd....

If you think of this as having ALL of the mass of the bike on the center of the rotational axis..... it's more compact (mass centralized) than pretty much any internal combustion engine could attain; especially when you have to add a transmission.

Whatever the rear suspension layout actually is, that looks extremely compact and 'clean' from a design standpoint. Carbon fiber wheels, frame, front suspension (uppers), triple clamps?

I personally don't like the seat setup, reminds me too much of Confederate's Hellcat, etc. and pretty much any space age attempt at a 'bobber'.

But getting an electric design to handle, brake, and accelerate with the best of ICE designs, AND have a purported 180 mile range on a charge --- never going to be worth $80K to me, and it makes HD's live wire look like a bargain..... but I do think it is more attractive than the Livewire, and should run rings around it. The fact that I could buy a couple of H2 for the price makes it a ludicrous purchase at this particular price point. At least for my wallet. Jay Leno will probably see it another way.

Reminds me of the bike from Death Stranding.


Electric motors are cool and fast, until they are not.
