Ya, it is like the stopped designing at the seat; it looks very chopped with the abrupt end of any style or design at the seat.

What's with that stupid rear fender?
Any crap that the rear tire picks up is carried around and shot straight forward into what appears to be the electronics under the seat!

I love it.
No comments on the girder fork?
John Britten used a girder on his race bike many years ago.
About a quarter down the page for those interested.

I rode a restored Square 4 around the block several times, super smooth.
The cranks are counter rotating and herringbone geared together.
The intake is just an open plenum on top of the very hot head, so compression must be low to avoid detonation.

Considering that was 1970, I'm hoping it comes with her daughter!...or maybe even granddaughter.

That sure is ugly, looks like someone crashed it into a wall and kicked it in the ass.

They are making two models. The ugly chopper thing with a girder front end,and a streetfighter with USD forks.

As far as I was aware there's a base model that is customisable, rather than 2 models.

That is accurate. But the good part is the bike doesn't have to look like it's half finished.
