Re: Since the Sur-ron dirt bike was such a success anyone have info on their motorcycle

Hello As the Australian and New Zealand Sur-ron dealer I have been advised that the White Ghost will be available as a sample/demo bike mid year. I have requested to receive a test bike as soon as possible. I have also been advised that the Light Bee is in the process of being EU certified for road ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

In my 5 months of contact with the manufacturer we have not discussed VIN as the bikes have been imported for off-road use only.
I never claimed to be a VIN expert I only informed other members of the number of digits marked on the bike from the factory.
Thanks for your well wishes

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

VIN is an acronym for vehicle identification number no kidding. If the manufacturer assigned a VIN to their product then it is authentic as the number is relevant. Whether it is compatible with registration regulations in your country is irrelevant to the term authentic. there's a difference betwee...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

I should have said headtube which is part of the frame.
I am sure that if you require 17 digits they will add a couple for you.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

In looking at the law in California, it seems like the Sur-Ron might qualify as a moped and be legal to ride on the street, at least in California. California Moped (Motorized Bicycle) Moped Type CVC 406(a) A moped meeting CVC 406(a) requires the operator to have a valid Class M1 or M2 motorcycle l...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

Congratulations!
Good to hear another happy owner with common sense comments, maybe someone should start an owners thread and we can ditch those still talking about re-design/pedal kit etc

I have had quite a few loose spokes so far so this is something to keep an eye on.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

If you can post some pics we can compare to our non-restricted bikes.
I doubt that the speed limiter would be anywhere near the battery pack.
Look for an add on loom from the controller.

Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

I am surprised that people keep talking about pedals for this dirtbike, but they do so this will be the only option I will offer. As previously mentioned I don’t want/like pedals on the Sur-Ron e-moto dirtbike but unfortunately most of the chatter surrounding the bike revolves around the pedal discu...

Re: [AUSTRALIA] Sur-Ron Light Bee / Fire Fly - Mid drive ebike

To those who have to have pedals,I can supply the bike with the factory designed pedal kit, it’s not my cup of tea but obviously what some people want.

I am also going to have gearing options too and spare parts support.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

I will confirm the number of digits in the VIN and advise. The catalogue shows 2 sizes for motor gear and 3 sizes for rear sprockets. I will be ordering all available options and advise once I have them. I have been in communication with the factory for months and was not told about any of these opt...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

The biggest issue for me about this bike not having pedals is I can't even ride it on jeep road and motorcycle trails or anything that is not on a closed course or private property legally. Up until a few years back, Nevada didn't have any title or registration requirements for OHV vehicles. Now we...

I agree with the off topic comment. I personally imported the bikes to Australia and have been riding them like a proper dirtbike for weeks and love them. I have over 20 years experience as a mechanic and auto Electrician and have been around many race car/fabrication work shops. I can confidently s...
