What's with the big hole where the gas tank usually is? Looks stupid if you ask me.

However the pickup truck that is delivering them is cool. :mrgreen:

"There will also be an optional Level 2 charger module available to fill the negative space left in the front of the frame. That would allow riders to charge at public charging stations, likely offering an even faster charge. Other accessories that will be available to fill that cavity include a storage compartment or a 3,000Wh auxiliary battery to extend the bike’s range. Riders can of course leave the space empty to retain that futuristic look." Source: https://electrek.co/2021/11/19/exclusiv ... otorcycle/

I'm not looking forward to the $700 for the "white glove" delivery service...

Arguably for weight distribution you'd want the space filled up top. Since Metacycles are meant for daily town use and not constantly riding your sportbikes it's actually impressive how they've made all options have practical use.
Here's to hoping more cycle riders take to them- a $5K new electric to keep the miles down on say, your CBR can be a big deal.
