Suggestion for a review: Varna Trike, an e-trike that leans into turns

There is a lighter electric trike that looks promising and that actually leans into turns for greater stability/handling:

I could see this being very practical as an errand runner kind of ebike, or for anyone who is intimidated by the way a bicycle can tip over. It can come with front and rear baskets and is not really that heavy for a trike. Without the battery/motor, it only weighs 38 pounds. And the ability to lean into corners is a big plus that very few tricycles offer.

Would love to see a review on here :)

By the way, the person who builds this trike also has built a number of Human Powered Vehicles that at one point held a bunch of speed records, including the fastest single rider bicycle record at the time of over 80 mph!
