Hideous would be an apt description.

Ooh. That description nailed it. 

You know, I expect to see a lot of innovative designs for electric two wheeled machines. Changing the nature and shape of the power plant should lead to changes in overall design. So  :thumbsup: to innovation in general.

But still, I'm a form-follows-function guy (which is why choppers make me go  :rolleyes:) and that telelever looks like it was put there to look cool rather than ride well. That bugs me.

The J1.150 comes with an 8.3 kilowatt hour battery pack, which Johammer claims is good for just over 93 miles. The more expensive J1.200, which weighs 400 pounds, sports a 12.7 kWh pack with a range of 124 miles. Both models have regenerative braking and a single-stage “twist-and-go” gearbox.

The J1.150 is on sale for just under $32,000, and the J1.200 is selling for just under $35,000.

93 - 124 miles in range for $32-35K....no thanks. I'll pass.

The Johammer allows a totally new driving experience through its silent electric motor. Allow others and yourself to hear the birds sing when driving the Johammer.

They clearly don't understand the American chopper culture. But I seriously doubt thoughts of American riders ever came into play when they designed/engineered this atrocity.

Yes. I'd say they have some work to do.

It just doesn't make sense to build something that hideous looking and then put a high price tag on it too. :hurl:

Minus the price tag, lack of HP, and minimal range, I think it's sort of neat. 

They have two sets of pegs for either forward-lean or forward-controls.
