The bike seems overpriced for the components, except for the electromechanical parts which are good, but buy it at a discount if you want a decent bike and your trails aren’t too rough or steep.

What bike are you coming from? What type of terrain do you ride? Are you a beginner, intermediate or advance rider?
Over 55 years pedaling, only last 3 mountain and fat. I consider myself an advanced beginner. I might go with a Scott 2018 that was more expansive but a bit cheaper now if the frame can fit me. I did not like the transmission on that Cannondale so i just took it off my list of potentials. I have and had quality bikes buying used but Ebikes used around here allmost do not exist except for poor quality ones. I have bikes so it will happen but it might take me some months. I was more XC but i will go most places except DH. I have a few tests booked next week.
I have HT, now shopping for my first FS. I did a Norco demo, liked the bike but that carbone one is over my budget.

i test drove one and there are better choices out there. i was not impressed by the fork and geometry. the rest is ok, but i would take a haibike or levo everyday instead of this one.

From all i read i just do not trust Shimano. Maybe i will go for a Giant HT because i trust Yamaha. I heard the 2 exclusive distributors of Haibike for North America do not plan to distribute them in Canada this year. I have not found an unsold in my size with a normal dicount. Since mid Nov. i just enjoy my fat on snow/ice probably till mid april. Happy trails.

What do you not trust about Shimano?

The engine needs to be replaced way to often. It seems some engeneers focussed about a light engine so they could brag about but forgot the reliability. Some say they are happy to get a third motor for free. I would be totally pissed having to climb back out of the woods i would sue them in smalls claims court for 10,000$. Nobody pays over 4,000$ to have repeats problems unless they believe the Kool-Aid from fake reviews. People are busy and buy without checking. Just like the Brose/Specialized bragging about a belt low noise that is just not ready for market. Failures after failures. I can pedal if i choose an Ebike it has to be one worth my $$.
They just use an endless list of excuses.
I am not paying for excuses.
