Impressive list of features.
My prediction is they will miss the $6800 price target by at least 100% and likely much more.
Compare their component content with the price of an equivalent motorcycle and then add in the body cost.

We will see; they are taking pre-orders at the $6,800 price point right now.

Given the quantities and the fact that this is a mass production of a very specific body type (in 6 colors, I believe); and that the accessories are all made to fit into the chassis (cruise control, AM/FM radio) - it’s an exercise in near static mass-production.

Same body, same frame, same engine, same everything. Accessories easily install, and very few options available.

With a target release date of just ~14 months away, over 95% of their supplies are contractually signed (so prices are locked in) - not a whole lot can go wrong.
