it is interesting how much the geometry of the frame varies for the two bikes. not surprising i suppose since they have different intended purposes, but remember that in many ways they're very similar. same motor, same battery, same wheels, 1x drivetrains, same frame material and basic configuration.
the photos (or renderings?) on the specialized site are quite undistorted, and a quick overlay in photoshop confirms that both are taken/rendered of a size medium bike. measured dimensions are within a half a percent of the predicted values, based on the known 622mm outer diameter of the wheels.
the vado is much longer, and the riding position relative to the front tire is much further back. of course stems and seats can be adjusted to reduce this difference, but fundamentally the frame is balanced around a different riding position. overlaid together, we see that every element of the frame is slightly different, most notably the distance from the crank to the front axle, which then triggers or is caused by different angles of the top and downtube, head tube, etc. it all makes sense given the nature of drop bars and flat bars, long road or gravel rides vs multipurpose riding, etc. one could outfit the vado with a zero offset seatpost, slide the seat forward, get a very long stem, and flip it upside down to start to bring the riding position closer to the creo (or vice versa!) but the fundamental handling characteristics driven by the wheelbase and head tube angles won't be changed by that.
