I think it’s cool that companies like this are starting to take this leap. Reliability would be my biggest concern with a bike like this, however. Additionally the lack of aftermarket parts would not only limit the bike’s potential but make common repairs more difficult.

Regardless, I think the bike looks good and I wish them luck.
