With oil and petrol you are talking wrong side of a quarter ton. 65bhp at crank (claimed) through a drive shaft (rather than chain) means something like 50bhp at back wheel.
5 gears mean no close ratio box here.
So if you have had the misfortune of spending time on this beast (it really is a big lump of a bike) you will note:
a) SLOW bike
b) Big, wide body, seating position too far over rear wheel and handling is top heavy. So you can’t overtake in traffic and you cant overtake on the open road due to low power.
What is the point of this? What purpose does it serve? Under what circumstances would this machine prove advantageous over its rivals? All these questions should have been asked by the designer at the planning stage and then this "concept" would never have made it past the drawing board.
