That is a rather unique bike. Never seen one quite like that or with that buffalo logo.

Hard to believe that is the correct battery pack for that bike. They look more something to power the headlights.

I think it's just a futuristic bike design. Is that a twist shifter on the right handlebar or is it a twist throttle?

There's no visible motor in the front wheel. There's no visible motor in the rear wheel. Doesn't really look like there is a motor driving the crank, unless that cylinder marked manitou is one, Is that a motor or a shcock absorber?

How does the crank feel. Can you spin it freely without feeling the gearing of a mid motor?

yeah thx. I was thinking the same thing today after discussing with a colleague- itís like a city bike- weird bike. Itís not a throttle but a 7 speed shifterÖmy colleague gave it to me saying itís an ebike but maybe itís not. Iím usually riding road bikes so my apologies..that manitou thing is a rear shock

Try the C & V forum. It looks so unique it may be worth something.

Can we get a shot of the center console? And what is that over the rear wheel? I see that the pedals fold. Hmm. Does anything else look like it's hinged?

Dimension is a brand of cyclocross crank arms.

The suspension suggests rough road capability.

Is the frame aluminum or steel?

Some respectful corrections, if I may:

Dimension is a general purpose supplier, on the value end, like Origin 8 or Profile. They make all kinds of things used on bikes. Even cyclocross ones, but not competition level by any stretch.

The suspension suggests rough road capability.
The size of the fork legs and geometry and shock size of the rear suspension, suggests a design focus on comfort, on standard city streets, rather than any kind of rough road capability.

The frame cannot be steel. It might be aluminum. My guess is actually Magnesium, but it isn't quite the right color for Mag Casting.
