I would love to see a Pedego/Ford EBike to compete with the Grace One.15:

I hope Rakesh can get the equivalent power from his 1kW Falco motor that A2B does from 2kW. Rakesh's focus is on efficiency. This is an opportunity for him to prove his tech and distinguish himself as a Tier 1 supplier to the industry.

Under California, not federal, law a 1 kW motor is a legal "motorized bicycle" -- not a motorcycle or moped. In California, A 1kW eBike does not require DMV registration, insurance or a license.

I am interested in how low you think the cost can be pushed for an equivalent Grace One.15?
Can a Falco-powered eBike be successfully marketed with Ford as a muscle-eBike? Consumers can relate to that concept as easily as a Sondors Beach Cruiser.
