Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

58 mine.jpg (446.75 KiB) Viewed 194 times Funny we had this conversation two years ago, back on page 86,87 of the thread. I'd love to see that Sur-ron Timbersled Ripper riding in a video. Could be more fun than we think. I know my local motoshop has the older Ripper 93 version for $1k, which would ...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

After recent testing of the Storm bee we have much better knowledge of the product and it’s likely production timeline. There is no point in teasing potential customers unnecessarily My big question is pricing, not too worried about time. If the boom bee ends up being $8500 USD, I will pass. The li...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

Luna states Also we will support the product from here in the USA getting you any warranty replacement parts you might need shipped direct from California Don't know what that actually means, but I didn't get any of the above parts under warranty the first year that they broke. Honestly, didn't expe...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

So, where else can we buy it and get warranty with support? So far no one else has announced anything, not even Luna. As an American buyer, we get absolutely zero warranty anyway. My light bee, had front forks replaced, charger broke and mangled headset in one year. Luna said, oh well, we can sell y...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

Jeisute sells the light bee and I think someone here was going to buy from them. Can't vouch for them either legit or not. Just interesting to finally see a price. I emailed them and will update if I get any response.

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

You beat me on posting this. Need to search for Boom bee, not Storm bee. Found it - $5390 with $1300 shipping to the US. Total of $6690. Looks like 10% discount if bought before January 15, 2020. Sales start in February, don't know if that means will ship by then or what. https://www.alibaba.com/pro...

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

:bigthumb:
Thanks for the post! $7k will be a decent price for this bike, $5k would still be better. This will be hard to ship, are they going to set up a dealer network or how they doing this?
Found this from the above post. Why do people still video in portrait, c'mon?!???

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

If the chart on Surron pro is true, why would they still be using 60v? Especially if it's going to hit 90kph(55mph).
Oh well, something else to wait for. Always something around the corner.

Re: Storm Bee electric dirt bike

I was hoping/wishing for $5-6k USD. Probably not going to happen. Can get used Alta for $7.5 which is still going for a premium for a defunct manufacturer. Wish I could have picked up a bankruptcy edition where I heard the Alta was selling for $5k. If the light bee is $3.5k at a third of the cost, I...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The other thing is smaller 17" wheels with the x160 and single crown fork. Charger, sprocket and chain will also be different. You might want to upgrade everything and have it be cheaper, but you need to compare to the $5k Segway version. They released rehashed info on the Storm bee today, but no pr...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Marketing gimmicks aside, I read 3000$ for the X160 and 4500$ for the X260, and additional discount for preorders. This fact alone will put Luna monopoly in sever danger. I guess Chinese people don't care too much about loyalty: when the big fish shows up asking for 10k+ units, they will be more th...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Also, replaced the headset on my Sur-ron with the Cane Creek version. Much better. Hope it will last a few years. I replaced the headset myself, so who knows about that! Nice to be out riding again.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Saw this over on Electrek. Looks like Segway is selling a rebranded version of the light bee. https://electrek.co/2019/11/05/segway-unveils-electric-dirt-bike-sur-ron/#disqus_thread https://i0.wp.com/electrek.co/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2019/11/segway-dirt-bike-header.jpg?resize=2500%2C0&quality=8...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Yes. It's on the AC side. Yes it's the original Kingpan version charger. I'll probably end up getting another charger at some point, but why throw away one that just needs a five dollar part replaced?
If it's just spark prevention I'm okay with that. My 72v lipo had much scarier sparks!

Woke up to this from my charger. Can I short this to do a quick charge? Can I buy these anywhere and solder them or should I just buy a new charger?

Yeah, wind is great when its blowing. I've wasted years of my life waiting for the wind kiteboarding. Now, I can ride anytime I want. My efoil cost $4500. Probably close to what your board and sails cost. :wink: Hopefully the boards will get cheaper in the future. No way they should cost $12000. Mot...
