and it's amusing to see flat pedals on a 4k prototype bike.

Looks like a CF version of a Gold Rush...Akirasho

The Gold Rush is a fairly popular long wheelbase recumbent.

Perhaps being built under license?

While I honestly can't say from the photos... there appears to be no new ground being broken (there are lots of one off CF tubed (homebuilt) recumbents on the roads).

If it comes to market... it might make a few 'bent makers sweat (their market niche is already tight... and many potential 'bent owners possess that kind of disposable income).

Be the bike.

different front end geometry and steering linkage (probably to reduce the tiller effect)... but still close enuff.

Be the bike.
