Java Carbon Fibre Folding Bike

Has this been mentioned before on here, I think it looks quite cool :-

JAVA 20" 1 1/8" Carbon Folding Bike 451 Portable With Force 22 Speed Disc Brake | eBay


No pictures of it folded, and no indication of the weight, ho hum.

I've seen it on display at bike shows and it looks nice in person.
I would guess it's 9kg, but again that's a wild guess.
I have no need for a side folder so haven't looked into it further.
Java has a sweet minivelo called the Freccia but it has rim brakes.
