Combine these parts with hours of a Sevcon controller tuning experts time on a motorcycle dyno (thank you Ryan), and you're set.
I took it to lunch today, riding with a friend on his motorcycle. A motorcycle cop had somebody pulled over on the side of the road. I slowed down to 25'ish, and made a show of turning the pedals as we passed by. No trouble.
For around town, I think it's faster than being on a superbike, and WAY more fun to be able to get in the bike lane or sidewalk whenever you like. I really enjoy it. It's just a nice comfortable, quiet, clean, and reliable machine, that has never left me disappointed in the acceleration department. It's fun to ride up stair cases as well, it's just effortless, you can just torque up them as slow or fast as you want, never worry about stalling or something. Nice to get great parking in bike racks too.
I think it's my favorite 2 wheel'd transportation option right now, and this is coming a guy with 4 motorcycles, including the best possible dirt machine and the meanest superbike.
