That bike is a relative beauty when compared to the saddle it's been saddled with :mrgreen:

I don't find it particularly unsightly and yes the seat is out of place but the price is damn ugly. 30K! Seriously? 10% of that would be still OTT.

With the recent animal inspired bikes, here's a shark. The headtube looks like the BT Superbike's.

And they appear not to have grasped how a saddle or bars are positioned. All that money and it's still got three chains externally mounted. I wonder how far the 2200w motor will push you?

There's a review here:

Based on the quoted battery size you might be able to get 50 to 60kms out of a charge.
