I think your sister would be super happy owning a busettii bike. Mine will average 22mph on the flats and about 17 to 19mph going up steep hills. Hope this helps.

Stats look great and the price is OK....they say: New VORTEX 38 volt 19 ah soft pack super lithium battery runs 65 miles per charge No Pedaling & 86 miles in pedal mode

1. The rear wheels will fall apart. They come with wrong sized spokes and wrong lace pattern. The rims and spokes are Garbage as well.
2. The axles might spin in the dropouts. When the axles spin they will rip out the harness and split the aluminum dropouts. These bikes don't have proper torque arms.
3. The hub motors will fail. The spragg clutches will start clattering away within a few months.
4. Motor controls and battery chargers will randomly quit.
5. The batteries will go 50-350 cycles.
6. The battery is not a true 48 volt. The batteries were shorted a cell. The Chinese used 13 cells rather than 14. And the battery manufacture (SYL) closed their doors and changed their name.
6. The alloys of the components such as brake levers, brake calipers, stems, handlebars, racks and forks are the worst of the worst. I had a brake lever snap off in my hand and I also had a customer shear a stem. It snapped right at the neck.
7. The Bottom bracket bearings are misaligned.
8. The head sets are missing ball bearings.( A few of the ball bearing rings were even installed upside down)
9. Every bolt was cross threaded. Including the bolts for the motor control boxes, the racks, and clamps.
I replaced and reinforced every failed component until the motor and the batteries started to go, then I gave up. Busetti didn't warranty a single item.

If the motor is drawing reserves from the battery at only a 250 watt rate, isn't the real result that a 500 watt motor has been reduced to a 250 watt motor for the period it is drawing at this rate?
Unless I have misunderstood everything I have tried to learn about this subject over the years, it is not possible to have a 500 watt motor somehow deliver 500 continuous watts while drawing from the batterypack energy at the rate a 250 watt motor would draw.
What am I missing about this marvelous motor that delivers 500 watts while drawing at the rate of a 250 watt motor?
