if all goes well test rides will be this saturday 02/26/2011!! weather is looking swell. currently weight 38.2kg (84 lbs) and final weight with chains and cover should be sub 39kg (86 lbs). full suspension, electronic throttle, 2 speed transmission and still, another 11 speed Shimano rear hub (which has ability to skip gears). hydralic brakes, front vented discs, rear solid disc. this thing is… siiiick. if my memory is right ben said the motor is 14,000 kw. it should go 80 km/h no problem. i guess we’ll find out soon.
