25 kilos, and its carbon fibre?
FFS, my Bosch powered, steel-framed Cannondale is only 20 kgs.
Do these manufactures forget that when the battery is flat, some poor kicker has got to *pedal* this monstrosity?

Pure already sell this thing, looks like some sort of motorised monkey bike...

I don't really understand this. For £5k I could buy a 4 year old Ford Fiesta - a fairly decent car. Sure the running costs are higher but its also a *car*. I can drive it thousands of miles at speeds of up to 70mph... Why on earth would I buy a non-utility e-bike! I can absolutely see the value in things like the GSD Tern (it's on my 'replace the car' list!) because it's a legitimately useful vehicle, but this just seems a bit silly.

I used to go the Cycle show in Brum and they had lots of Ebikes and normal ones that were built to look like Motorbikes. I just don't see the thought for them. Heavy to ride, as SS mentions, probably handles awfully, no functionality other then fashion. Imagine the state of your back with that rear tyre / mudguard combo.

Black on black pics (again). Why bother. Not clever.

Looks like a truimph of hideous form over function.  Imagine it handles like a pig.
