Opti keeps innovating. I would love to try riding it... I really like the 5 levels of assist. I'm still waiting for a PAS option, a rear integrated tail light and a 7-8k price point.

^^ Hehe... Yah. $13,900 still the "bleeding edge" of product development. :) Watts missing? Volume production (to lover fixed and overhead costs). :wink:
