I agree that this is an electric motorcycle. As a motocross racer and a mountain biker I can say that I enjoy the two sports being separate. I mtb because I love it and it also teaches me to carry momentum, thats a main benefit. The argument that this bike gives you the "fitness benifit they'd otherwise miss out on by riding a moto" tells me that you have little to no real experience on a moto track or trail. Motocross is one of the most physically demanding sports in the world, mtb is a warm up comparied to a full out motocross race. I also agree with tnkasper's argument that that the torque produced by this bike will create ruts and excessive trail erosion. Electric motors are known to make tremendous torque. In a time when mtb trails are going extinct from "trail erosion" caused by knobbies and pedals, the last thing we need is a torqued up electric bike tearing up trails even more. I respect the idea, but i would not purchase it and I can not see it helping the sport at this time.

on a sled the back brake gyro is much more noticeable wen u tap it but the landings are so much more brutal than a bike. levi has really good air control. wen paul thacker tried this his nose caught wind n he flipped over.
