Yikes. It's the Godzilla of ebikes. Terror on the bike paths. It's coming. I'm out of breath just watching it.

A couple of reliability/safety comments from an old geezer.
-Those folding stems weren't intended for off pavement riding. They have been seen to snap off on another popular brand of folding fat tire bike, Lose the folding shtick and upgrade to some solid BMX bars. In fact, why not a solid frame. Who is going to fold a 116 lb bike and lift it into a car.
-Let's hope Walke has qualified those front forks for durabilty. Horrendous (to me) forces on the dropouts hauling 300 pounds down from 44 feet/second. Not to mention just the motor torque.

Oh what the heck. I don't own Walke stock.If they crash, they crash.

I didn't actually say I wanted it. It's a bloody boat anchor!!! At 110 lbs hauling this thing around would be insane. Can you imagine me attempting to carry up and down my narrow basement stairs? I'd die trying. I only posted this because I find it interesting. The dual motor aspect is quite appealing to me, especially for riding around the beach where I live. There's another dual motor ebike that I do like, and it's a full sized model. It's a cheapo bike, but looks like fun.

The killer app for this is painted olive drab green or flat dark earth or all flat black and used for stealthily inserting troops from far enough away that the helo or V-22 isn't heard. Much further mission radius than a HALO jump and also offers a return ride, unlike a parachute. Cheap by military standards. This is what's known as a COTS purchase, Commercial Off The Shelf, no design, development, production, just buy it.
