    If I was blind, riding this bike, and God would give me sight. I would beg him/her to take it back.

    I love it. Put a tour pack, fenders, bar risers, and windscreen on it. It would be perfect. I thought it was a BMW when I first saw the pic.

    Fabulous interpretation of what a BMW electric motorcycle should be -- without the crutch of being "retro". I like it a lot.

    While the boxer engine has obviously been a great thing for BMW and a huge part of their history, I’ve always found it cosmetically unappealing. Making something that looks like it when there is no functional reason to do so is a pretty big turn off for me. I realize I may be completely alone here, but lumps sticking a foot or so out each side of a bike just don’t look good to me.

    Seems to me that the Beemer "projections" are an ideal place for cooling the battery, BMS, and/or controller.
    Note that they could use either air or water cooling with this design.
