OK, after tearing myself away from looking at Catwoman, and using some good photos found on tecnologytell.com, I got back to modelling after the fine weather break and got stuck into some detailing.
I added battery packs, wiring, hoses, exhaust, constructed the round thing at the front whatever it is, and added some general detailing.
I think I've finished (except for a couple of brake lines to be added later) the detailing on the body now so next is adding the wiring and sensor to the handle bars. I'm not looking forward to that as they're quite fragile so drilling into them will have to be a delicate exercise. A test fit with the figure is proving that it'll be impossle to build the Bat-Pod entirely and then fit him onto it. I'm kinda tempted to leave him off altogether as his cape is just going to hide all the details I just added.
Thanks for looking!
PS - Thanks to Dennis and Spud for helping me out for the tubes and rods that I'm using for the details
Not much progress made on this recently but I did manage to finish the control handles last night. A delicate task and a job I was putting on the long finger. Added thumb controls as on the real bike, made some modifications, drilled out the holes for cables and wired everything up. I also added a sensor which was not included in the kit even though quite visible on the box art.
Getting there slowly but surely. Thanks for looking!

All my own additions Spud. I used 0.2mm black coloured copper wire for the cables that I wanted to stand up and have a nice curve. For the cables coming out of the thumb control buttons I used 0.2mm lead wire. This is very soft and shapes well to bend and conform around things. For the cable ties I just used some copper wire out of a bit of twisted core electrical cable. These were then twisted and tightened with a tweezers to hold all the cables onto the bars.
