FINALLY, the motorbike is finished. Sort of. I'm upgrading the front/rear suspension, and the hydraulic brakes over the winter. I don't feel the common components used on other e-bikes are suitable for the extra weight that this motorcycle is carrying in battery capacity (battery alone weighs 80 lbs). But it's a very comfortable ride, regardless. Not like a typical e-bike. Other minor cosmetic details could be better, as well, but that's a matter of opinion/preference I think. Other than that, I think this bike is great. I love it! Fast enough for highway use, better acceleration than most cars, and more than enough range for the avg person's daily commutes.
