Bionix is a pretty sophisticated system, and has a huge gadget fator. To me, no different than a StokeMonkey on an Xtracycle if put to good use.

Before I was commuting regularly, I used to dream up full blown velomobiles (recumbent trikes with full fairing) with electric assist, which is how I learned about the Bionix. As I started riding daily, I stopped thinking about them. I chalk that up to the difference between attraction to the machine vs. the spirit of cycling. Motorcycles started out this way, too, and evolved into something very different.
