The teaser for this motorcycle only includes an image, and since no details were provided we can only judge what we see. The motor will likely be a hub motor, looking at this configuration it’s pretty clear no belt or chain are in use. Other than that we can talk about style, which it really does have, and it’s based on an awesome model, the BMW R71. Iconic without a doubt.
