The rear wheel is interesting.......

They seriously need to do something with all that cabling going to the rear wheel, it makes worse.

Looks like it’d be fun to change the rear tyre :smirk:

The rar wheel is the most interesting/visually appealing part of it. The box frame around the batteries looks like it was made up as a bodge within a morning. I'd rather spend my 30K on something else

I do like it, but to my eyes it looks like the front of the bike was designed by someone different to whoever designed the rear?

It’s the middle that’s the issue to me. Also the view from above is awful

With the recent betterment of range with electric vehicle batteries its a bit of a gamble that your buying something (at a vast premium to a liquid fuelled car/bike) that will be yesterdays expensive vehicle.
At £30k for something so ugly I wouldn't expect their books will be too full.

A much better looking and more reasonable priced (though still expensive) option.

Yes that caught my attention as well. WTF is a 'power tank'. That really annoys me when they use a stupid trade name instead of a proper description.

Plus vat which means an extra 20%

Now almost £36k.:speechless:

Just check it and found I can not read the price. :blush:

Seems to be an additional battery that can be added to the bike.
