We got the pricing today - a well spec'd US unit will come in around $8800 not bad. Sorry about the cast wheels.

The engine isn't Chinese on this one, production is back in Munich now.

HP quotes. 3hp down on some earlier figures, but this probably runs the heavier stator and gets more charging voltage.

Throttle/Power restriction is ridiculously simple. Just looking at the throttle body cable linkage spool thingy (tech term) on my XChallenge tells all...imagine the cable gets attached at the 3'o clock position instead of the 12 'o clock position. The throttle cable can then only unwind so much opening....simple.

Would be a funny trick to pull on a friend during an oil change.
