Some thoughts after just a short ride. It fits, you dont sit on the bike you wear it. I like that. Ergonomics for me is good. Its light and nimble steady on the open road at speed. Screen could be bigger. Engin and gearbox is very smooth. Still have to figure out all the electronics. Its very different than any bike I’ve had. It has a good feel and so far no “o fok wat het ek gedoen nie”

Lekker fiets @Gerard , jy moet hom geniet en veilig ry.
