It's actually not bad looking either.

Electric motors are always heavy on torque. Unfortunately they're also just plain heavy. I'm willing to be the two shortcomings on this bike are handling and range.

The only thing missing on an electric bike is the standard transmission. Its just on and off the trottle

I talked to a guy at Fontana, he said that the electric bikes were very heavy. I'm sure that will improve in time.

It's the batteries. Until battery tech improves significantly there is always going to be that weight penalty with electric. It might get better, but it's never going to be light. I guess the one trade-off is that they can put the weight where they want it for the most part, and you don't have the bike dynamics change with full fuel and low fuel.
