The video encapsulates the entire making process of the e-bike. Every single component of this bike is customised. This includes designing metallic rods to build the frame for the seat and engine area. The chassis has been developed that supports the entire bike including custom seats developed with sponge/foam to accommodate one person with a specific posture appropriate for driving the one wheel electric motorcycle and the electric motor integrated into the tyre itself. These rods are then spray-painted using the orange colour that immediately oozes out KTM vibes.

The fuel tank area has also been sculpted in such a way that the final product appears to resemble the KTM Duke, though it’s essentially an FZ’s tank that has been done up in KTM livery. In the explanation at the end, the YouTuber mentions that because there were so many similarities with the design of the KTM Duke that he decided to name this the one wheel version of the KTM electric bike. The body graphics are white and orange but there is a carbon fibre black element added to it as well. The alloy wheels have been given a slight tinge of white inserts on the black body.
