Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Geez you have some nasty "roads" down there. I thought the stuff I ride was bad, but that was scary just watching the video. Looks like the SurRon handles it pretty well though. Yes we have some nasty roads down here, they have taken out a few of my previous e-bikes, but are no match for ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The 52T is perfect for my riding and terrain, the torque is much more manageable than the 58T and the top speed seemed closer to the 48T I thought just judging by feel. On this trail I wouldn’t have much use for more top speed anyways. I am looking forward to testing the sine wave controller in the ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Had a great ride testing out the 52T rear sprocket from Motomoto last weekend. I believe this is the best budget performance upgrade.
More torque whilst retaining decent top speed, much more managable offroad than the 58T.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

The factory has advised that the version/model X is basically a new version of the Light Bee built for Chinese domestic market. Its main feature is the sine wave controller and a new colour and a few other differences to justify the price increase. And they have advised me that they are out of stoc...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Pretty hard to find any ride reports for this bike in an off-road setting where it’s really getting thrashed pretty hard. Watching the Luna guys trying to pop wheelies in their parking lot, you can tell the bike has quite a bit of power but I have no idea what it would be like to ride on serious te...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Here are the images of the assembly... Seems that is a newer version, has a vehicle number and besides blinkers has everything to become road legal, even a document stating that has speed limit 20km/h I guess that is for registration purposes. 4F3D1693-60DB-4D38-B50D-55480D018D65.jpeg 29D792DF-B627...

Does sur Ron have skid plate?
The bike has a motor bash plate, but not the type you want to land on intentionally and bounce off boulders.
It is probably only 2mm mild steel, you may want to use a thick aluminium plate to do serious trials work.

How will it different from the oset24? Say if I want to buy a e-trial , future Sur Ron or oset ? Any idea? If you are in Australia, or NSW to be exact you can visit the Oset dealer in Woolongong and the Sur-ron dealer in Sydney. I have owned Oset bikes they were my first e-bikes, a 12.5 for my son ...

Unfortunately its not quite that straight-forward. I have tried and got up to the point where they don't ship to the US.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

As someone who is dealing directly with the factory and has been a dealer for 6 months I doubt you will be able to get your hands on this version for months.

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

The bikes can be fitted with the optional 58T rear sprocket which gives much more torque and less top speed similar to a trials bike power delivery. We have a shipment on its way which includes the new sine wave controllers which I’m guessing is the magic ingredient in the new “ X “ version. We were...
