Although it looks like automatic, it's not, and doesn't feel like one.
It's a constant pull. I don't like automatic but surprisingly like how electric rides.

There's no transmission at all, right? So, it's continuous one speed?

Yes, no wasting time on shifts and speed pickup. It's just goes.
There're also mods to generate different power outputs.

Well, to me these bikes aren't useful just yet, giving short battery distance and long charging time.

Still, need to try and see what the ride is like. Even if batteries last longer, the ride experience will be the same or similar

200 miles per charge isn't bad at all, but 3 hours of charging is terrible. I guess it's ok for short rides, but then at $$25K, it's just super expensive toy. Not practical.
