Additional FeaturesThe Comet CVT is from a snowmobile. It gives the bike excellent low speed torque, yet allows for a good top speed. Combination of CVT and secondary gear reduction gives the bike a 9:1 gearing at low speed up to a 3:1 gearing at high speed.

The EZE Sports Bike has a drop in power module and battery box that will fit inside the OEM Honda F4/F4I plastic. No frame modifications required. There is still a lot of testing to be done on this bike as there are many option for single/twin etek, 48 or 96 volt, CVT tuning. The EZE accelerates like my Yamaha 700 Virago and handles like my conventional Honda F4I sports bike. A lot of fun on twisty roads.

A picture of the EZE Sports Bike was published in Cycle World Magazine, April 06 along with a letter to the editor.
