    If thats even its name, but did a 5 mile demo on one today.. and Im very very VERY impressed!

    The power is unbelievable, but very smooth and easy to control. The touch screen instrument cluster right on par with todays tech, felt like I was riding a lightning body position wise that is. The regenerative braking isnt all that aggressive, feels just like my buell when engine braking. 90 mile range meh, but a fun bike to ride overall I give it an 8.5/10 I would buy/will if it becomes available and I dislike the concept of electric.

    Good thing there is no clutch lever on that bike because you only have one finger on your left hand. :D

    I kinda like the mirrors on the turn signals. Keeps the handle bars clean.

    Honestly I'd be interested to try it out as its the first electric bike out there I've seen where it looks like they actually tried to put some fit and finish on it instead of just cobbling together parts (I'm looking at you Zero).

    I just find it funny that HD killed off buell to basically build an electric XBS.
