CSC City Slicker

Post by skyungjae » Jun 08 2018 12:53pm

This bike might be a game changer in the US for EV bikes. I know there has been an electric grom clone that people have been tinkering with for a while, but this one comes with lithium-ion out of the box and is legitimately street legal. It's going to be $1995 plus fees. Shipping will be free in the Continental US like all of their ICE motorcycles.

I've been following their Facebook page and blog, and they are currently testing 3 of them in the US.

I've been curious about these since I've seen them pop up on their website. I recently plated my most recent clonebix, but this bike seems like it has a lot more to offer for commuting for its price.

I'll try to get my hands on one when they become available to the public. It helps that their store is only about 20 miles from me.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Looks pretty great! Seen anything about kw output?

How do they do they make it for that price? I've been looking at building and ebike and just the kit is over $1500. No bike, no labor.

Seems like not enough power. Also, any idea why it's 216 pounds? It seems like less power than the Sur Ron and twice the weight. Same battery capacity

Got more info from CSC Motorcycles:
Yes it does weigh 216lbs, the battery itself weighs 35lbs, yes it will come with a C.O.O. and VIN and it is legal in all 50 states. The introductory price will be $1995, 55 doc fees, and $345 for Assembly/Inspection/Ocean Transport. The crating and shipping will be no charge in the lower 48 states. We will be taking $500 deposits in about 2 weeks.
Still can't figure out how it weighs so much. The battery should be between 18 -24 lbs, they are saying 35 lbs. Maybe some cheap Li-Ion cells, not 3500 mAh?

The Sur Ron seems similar, but weighs 110 lbs? Just don't know where the extra 100 lbs comes from...

Can see more detail here, like an on-board charger...

More info:
rate power 1500w
peak power 3200w
range:90km @ 30 km/h

Power seems kind of low for a 216 lb bike. How does it get up to 46 MPH?

Hopes and dreams? :lol:

It looks like they postponed their release until Fall of this year. I wonder if they'll abandon it altogether if it doesn't perform to expectations.
