When are the trials guys going to learn to put a small hubby in the front wheel too? In that kind of riding there's no doubt that 2wd can be a benefit, and electric is the only way to accomplish truly useful 2wd with little added weight.
Chain drive rear, geared freewheeling hub on front and a throttle on each handlebar side for independent control. This would also make for great mx racing... Push into corners with rear motor and pull out with front motor. nice!
I'll be launching my first 2wd next weed, just finishing up the wiring and battery mount, something I've wanted to try for years now. I'm not sure about the need for separate throttles, though I can kinda see the need when the front wheel goes airborne, but that should properly be handled by software. 2wd has been the holy grail of ICE moto manufacturers but it's so easy with electric. In my case, solely for street riding, I just want the extra traction, and the extra power afforded by double the cooling. I'm starting with 7kw up front and 17kw rear as the power allocation, and see how it goes.
