Production-ready? I don't think so. No adjustments whatsoever for seat or handlebar position (other than fore-aft on the saddle rails). The single-position cowhorn handlebar won't be comfortable for more than a few minutes. Why Dual Control levers when it doesn't even use derailleurs? I don't think Dual Control works with internal gear hubs like Nexus. Like most concept vehicles, it's mostly smoke and mirrors.
Just where would one race this bike? The motors make it illegal. And it looks about as uncomfortable a bike as ever built.
Racing Bike? I don't think so. If performance enhancing drugs are outlawed in bicycle racing I don't think they will look too kindly on electric assist.
