I've seen magnetorheological shocks before, but I never expected to see it on a bike. Cool idea!

I am vey uncomfortable with the placement of the touch screen of the bike.

I believe that it should come to the handle of the bike like the instrumental panel of the motor bikes.

It's amazing to see what was once found only in high-end automobiles, such as in Audi's TT and R8 models, incorporated into off-road bicycles.
