7m 50s -> 8m 20s.
The first bit just lets you see what the bike looks like. The last 10s of that section gave me a chuckle.

9m 50s - bling tank - rippling lights!

It's actually quite a pleasant watch all the way through.

Just because I learned how, here's a link to that timestamp, more or less:
Quack :)

Looks quite nice, not overly 'off'. Although the heat dissipating bits reminiscent of an air cooled engine are far enough back to make me think "eh." So I  would like more ridiculously expensive fairings there please, with Honda VFR-style fancy air directed where it needs to be.

Anyway, range?

100 miles if you don't give a monkeys - 140 if you're gentle. Still a little shy of what a K owner needs.

Having ridden a 1000 miles on an electric mountain bike since March, cars/bikes anything you like it’s only going one way.

Yup, agreed Chris. But currently, for motorbikes anyway, at a cost that's slightly over the value it can give me.
But we're getting closer...

Is adventure style stil the biggest market in bikes? If so then after the expensive first examples like this, which I'll equate to the first tesla roadster and then the S, they'll eventually get to the mass market, i.e the Volkwagen wtf and the 3.
Yaaay. But because everyone and their mother loves PCP they'll still be more expensive.
