The structure of the frame it’s crafted from 6061 T6 aluminum, it maximizes the strength-to-weight ratio. But what really makes this bike tick is the X1 Pro Gen 3 motor from CYC Motors, offering a whopping 250N.m of torque. Power in a compact form? Check. Intuitive torque sensing? Absolutely. It comes with the new X12 controller with dedicated firmware.

  1. This frame design shares the short comings of other bicycle adapted pseudo motorcycle designs in terms of ergonomics. Bad seat, body positioning not ideal for pedaling.
    The reserve price as some pointed out should be its retail price.

    Competing designs from the better variations of this idea do it better. The motor torque and output are decent.
