The only reasonable application for a motor on a mountain bike is for commuting or for general exploring to scope hills for trail building. Other than that they serve NO purpose for us as far as I'm concerned.
I think it's a cool concept, kind of like a hybrid bike. Doesn't throw pedaling out the window but adds a power assist. I just want to know why it has all that sheet metal bolted onto it, they could drop a ton of weight by just leaving the tubes exposed.
