KMX Tornado for hilly roads?

I'm and older guy considering a KMX Tornado for several reasons - I live in south-central Iowa and there are some serious (serious to me, 30% grade 1/2 mile or more) hills and I'm hoping someone can comment as to their experience with this bike in hilly country - Thanks D Brooker

800 feet of climbing in a half mile? I think we need a picture!
