Not the best for my retro eyes, but then groupset have that edgy look and they know how to make an ebike and it needs to look different to last year's.

Bet it rides nicely and easily though.

To me it doesn't look ugly as such, just very overly complex, which means its more likely to fail I'd imagine. That wouldn't bother a pro rider of course.

The name doesn't really grab me "Haibike". hmm. Seems like it should be in Halfords or Argos but then whats in a name....
 

Peachy!

Looks like it’s been designed by the BMW motorbike dept... They invented ugly on two wheels!!!

The bike in the OP looks very industrial and functional. But it's an e-bike, and in my opinion e-bikes never look that great. You can't really beat a diamond frame single speed or fixed wheel road bike for aesthetics and beautiful simplicity.

Does anyone know what that Raleigh is, and how much it would have retailed for as new? I'm just curious as to what kind of buyer/market it was aimed at.
