Some design irregularities showing up.
Not specifically the wheelbase but the rear wheel is too far back no doubt because of the motor placement and the use of a standard "swingarm" that is not designed to morph around the motor and bring the rear wheel forward.
This stretched limo concept will destroy the weight distribution and overload the front wheel in corners causing a lot of front wash crashes, low sides.
All these demo rides they are doing are suspiciously slow especially in corners.
Maybe thats because they not able to use tire warmers.

Front page on MotoGP website shows a MotoE bike with tank cover off and showing what looks like a Rinehart PM100.
The wheelbase problem I picked out seems to have been addressed, the bike looks shorter in the rear.
Mick Doohans right ankle is fused solid (I believe) and the brake pedal was removed to prevent him accidentally applying the brake.
