Not my taste, but it's not repulsive-looking to me, like most HD bikes.
Energica Ego's start @ $34k and go up to the Limited Edition Ego45 w/ carbon fiber body work & full Ohlins suspension for a mear $68k. Even looks more like a sportbike & does a better task of trying to hide the battery / motor. They also make a... wait for it. A Streetfighter!

The review I read in the UK Bike mag "Fast Bikes" stated that their rubbish for the track. Battery over-heats & bike goes into limp mode. WTF for $68k.

The best memories come from bad ideas done with best friends.

What kind of noise does a potato make?

i think i can speak for a few of us now if i say...
...id like to build electriv bike out of pure fun, mostly because my job is releated to battery and battery tech. there's only one drawback. it's all expencive as fuck and with two kids and two cars and five bikes it's hard to concentrate on several projects at same time. maybe this will be the year i get rc24 fixed the way i like it more(that means respraying the body and reupholster the seat. race bike will be more or less done and VF should be ready to ride until spring(except for girder front end)
Then i would like to start my affair with electric bike, but with one condition, i will ride it when i will charge it myself(that means either solar or wind)

lately i've been snooping around and stumbled upon hybrid motor from honda fleet. honda did hybrid the smart way, motor isnt as a seperate unit, but it's between ICE and gearbox. it makes torque line flat and helps the engine where it needs some help.
i've read up specs too
13 hp (9.7 kW) @ 1500 rpm
58 lb⋅ft (79 N⋅m) @ 1000 rpm
and thats at claimed 84 NiMh batteries, that makes around 100v nominal power.
FFS my VFR makes a bit more torque than this little fucker. and those are quite cheap comparing to other electric motors (~300$ i think)
so the most expencive part there should be controller, seen a few DIY write ups for them too.

anyway electric transportation suck, because IIRC you cant recycle lithium and most of electricity is produced by burning fossil fuels
