120km range before charging - a waste of a good Rallye chassis ::)

True.

Imaging pushing this thing! :eek:

Sorry but I like the smell of a combustion engine in the morning.

Rally nut. What could possibly go wrong?

The most amazing thing is that the writer managed to write an entire article in one  loooong sentence.

In it's defence, 450's don't have much more range until you add rally tanks and whatnot. This bike needs rally batteries. But then, rally tanks get lighter along the way. Batteries not so much.

Worst.idea.ever  :lol8:

How are you going to "borrow" electricity from your fellow participants when you got lost and did some extra kms?

Looks like someone took an Italian press, release ran it through Google Translate and moved all the commas from where they were, needed and inserted them where they were not needed just like in this sentence,

I'm happy that electric bike technology is coming along, but this bike is butt-ugly.
