I won't hold my breath waiting for Bike Friday to begin selling e-Tikits. Maybe Power-in-Motion can convince them, but I'm inclined to say you ultimately won't see them sold, but will need to convert a Tikit on your own.
I can't say either way, but having installed a Power in Motion kit on my buddy's Tikit it takes all of 1hr and the only extra part you are buying is the original Tikit front wheel. I'd want that to be able to swap in for non-e-assist rides in any case.

I think all BF has to do is accept the eTikit kit as not affecting the warranty and beyond that it would be cool if they sold the kit, but not really essential.
