Looks nice, but I wouldn't pay that price.

UK Government moving away from subsidising Electric vehicles- hydrogen gas power is next-potentially explosive news

I had a chance for test ride at a recent e-bike event.  While it looks a bit "different" to many of the other bikes it just didn't feel to have the same build quality/components as some of the other e-bikes at the same price. You are certainly paying for the name and design factor.

I had a ride around Antwerp last year at smarttimes. I was quite impressed but again not sure about the cost. Also I guess I was on a euro spec bike which had 250W motor whereas the UK will have only 200W
