The ( Porsche-owned ) Fazua Ride 60 Motor is seamlessly integrated into the Relay’s carbon frame; fuss is kept to a minimum with a simple control unit integrated within the top tube displaying LEDs that, presumably, indicate battery life and/or assist mode. It looks like riders will be able to plug their phone into the control unit, and mount that to the bar/stem in order to see stats about their ride.
