Ultegra 8070 is 2 years old and Force Etap is not even 2 weeks old. So yes there will be a premium there.
And Di2 has a wired cable, which is more prone to failure. Do I want to wire the entire shifting system, with failure points at each junciton and subject to higher failure during a crash...or a wireless sytem that removes all of that complexity? Ask Sagan recently. And many of the other pros who have experienced this with Di2 and just switch to a different bike from the team. I don't have that.
By the way, the size 44 and 49 looks too slope.
