Class 3 Cruisers

Do any of the Big Four Bike Manufacturers make a Class 3 Ebike Cruiser? Why are we limited to Class 1, 2 e bike cruisers? What's up Specialized, Giant, Trek, Scott, Electra?

I put a 1200w, 48V front hub motor (e-bikeling) on a cruiser frame and it was a fun ride, but under-braked with just a rear coaster system. Was going to change the front fork to have a "V", but decided to remove the motor, add a caliper brake and use as a medium trail duty bike. I'm guessing the "majors" won't produce a Class 3 cruiser because they don't feel the market will provide adequate support.
