Are these licensed as motorcycles when used on the street or are they off-road only? Their website said off-road but couldn't find the reason why? Maybe no brake or running lights? Uses a 60V power plant with top speed of 40mph. I'm not looking for a highway EV bike, just something around town.
I think Off road only. They would fun in town though.

I wonder if the cyberquad cartel will make Tesla ship them out of state before they can sell them in Texas

Particularly not the Cyberquad which you don’t even need to register (might need to get stickers, but I don’t think that’s as traceable as licensing).
In Arizona everything motorized has a traceable title. If you want to use it off road in public spaces, you get a $25 OHV plate. For street, you then add street registration. A Cyberquad would be easy to make street legal here, and basically impossible in places like CA.

There's a huge list of problems, down to getting DOT approval on the lights, and so much more. Many states allow you to very easily make something legal, but for a federal approval, there's much more involved. And for fed approval, it has to meet the law for all states. So we can register a UTV or quad in AZ, but then it's not legal to ride in CA.

Ask me how I know.

So could I register it in Az and drive it in California the way I can drive other out of state vehicles?

Nope, read my second paragraph. $180 fine.

CA found a way around the federal compact laws that let them keep UTVs and ATVs illegal even if legal in their home state. Kind of like how my legal window tint here is illegal in CA.

The Cyberquad will have a series sticker from the manufacturer and comply with California emissions rules, so it'll be fine to license here. Also California is a massive market.
