Chief Designer Dr Wattson Lightvolt suggested in an interview with a European publication that he has long been a fan of the Mighty Flying Brick and that internal design cues crept into his sketches repeatedly until he stopped resisting them and just went with it.

Back in the 2000s I sold parts to a guy down in Berkeley (where else Laughing) who converted a K75 to electric.

He was reluctant to admit to the Moto-press that his design was actually inspired by his microwave oven while it was warming day-old pizza.

The inspiration of the chassis is obviously based on Ducati...
But that's right, the engine is very similar to the electronic ignition box of the K's.
