How do you find the battery life? That would be the biggest question mark for me if it's been sitting in various warehouses for a couple years in unknown climate conditions.

The battery seems fine. I've read that the Yamaha batteries are in a deep sleep mode until they are first charged. I put a lot of effort in (for me) and have done longer rides up to 46 miles that included elevation gain over 3,000 feet starting with 90% charge (I've read that it is best to not fully charge nor discharge the battery) and dropping to ~30%.
