I have big problems with the lack of the clutch and rear brake pedal. The lack of a clutch is probably ok for general riding and the far majority of riders who just tool around on quad trails and fire roads. In order to get the pop for the bike launch over 24”+ logs and obstacles, a clutch is needed. Even a 8” log right at the exit of a corner where there is no run up. A clutch is needed. On a steep climb that has many stair step roots, I use the clutch to disengage power delivery to the rear wheel as it climbs over the root and then I let it back out just after the root. Like a 1/10 of a second clutch slip. I don’t think anyone would be able to climb a tricky root filled hill climb without a clutch. I have seen many people try and come on our rides with rekluse clutches and fail miserably. I took an E motion trials bike out for a demo. It was nice but the same clutch issues existed. GasGas is introducing an E bike with a clutch and a transmission. I don’t think the 6 speed transmission is necessary but a couple/few gears would be nice. The next hurdle is the 14k price tag, when a 2 stroke can be purchased for less than half of that. I don’t think the glut of 150 bikes is related to the electric movement, I think it is more the fault of people talking. People like to say “if they build a small bore woods bike, I’d buy it” but when it came time to lay the cash down, people just keep going to the 300s.
