Well tMall and Taobao are afaik strictly asian website, shipping only to asian countries. So I guess for those of you looking into this third party currier service of some sort might be needed and will add to costs. I've used various services like that over the years, both when ordering from US and asia and they do work but they do add to the final price. Be sure you calculate the international shipping costs into your spread sheet, and if you are living in EU/EEA you might even get to pay taxes or VAT also on the international shipping as well as as the shipping to courier, and the product itself. For me that is additional 25% VAT on top of everything + killer handling fees and various bits and bobs. Sweden got 21% VAT on top.FlightService wrote: ↑Nov 27, 2017 8:57 amhttps://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a ... 1016202821
Also I found the company's website on TaoBao.
If you have never ordered from them it can be a little tedious but doable. The Nerf guys have been doing it for years.
Oh geez hopefully someone can chime in with new pricing, every bike on Luna site is way to much $$dirkdiggler wrote: ↑Dec 12, 2017 10:32 amI just got an email saying that Luna cycles is where I need to buy the bike. Anyone else know anything about that?
Could be good news as Luna does a great job. Just crossing my fingers that the price is still reasonable and hopefully even cheaper due to better shipping costs. Denzel's dirt bike is only $500 shipping, where Sur-ron was quoting close to $900. We'll see..
ODAY THIS BIKE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR ACTIVE USERS ON FAST ELECTRIC BIKE FB Page
LUNA is first once again to bring a brilliant product to market
This is the newest version of this bike with a new motor with better heat fins, more power, and significantly quieter than the first prototypes seen online.
For Off Road Use Only!
Not legal in all 50 states.
Suprise! Luna and Sur Ron have partnered to offer an awesome dirt bike to the North American public.
Read one review on the Sur Ron from Ev Nerds here
Check out the review on electricbike-blog.com (coming soon)
We will ship with the speed limited to 20mph which could be argued is street legal but we do not recommend riding it on the street since street riding is dangerous. WE recommend you do not remove the speed limiter because with the speed limiter off the Sur-Ron will do 45mph.
If you do not want your bike shipped with the limiter please specify your bike is for racing in your order notes and you want speed limiter removed
There has been a lot of excitement about the release of the Sur-Ron bike for good reason.
This bike is 50 and even 100cc honda killer... the ultimate little dirt bike perfect for young or inexperienced riders...but also good for just about everyone (great xmas present which you can use yourself)
This electric mini motorcycle is fast, reliable, giant range, and built at a quality that we have never seen before for an EV out of China.
Sur Ron and Luna have secretly been working on developing this product for the North America market and Luna is the exclusive North American Dealer for this product.
Luna will also be announcing some exciting new upgrades which will only be available to people who buy their Sur Ron from us. Also we will support the product from here in the USA getting you any warranty replacement parts you might need shipped direct from California.
This bike is built like a tank and we are confident it will provide years of reliable service.
It has one of the best constructed battery packs ever offered in a small EV....
This bike is easy to customize and upgrade... the performance upgrades are limiteless from the battery to the controller. We think this motor can handle easily 12,000 watts with a fov sine wave controller, and we will be soon offering that as an upgrade kit.
We will be offering an easy to install pedal kit in the next few weeks.
This bike has the capacity to be the ultimate hot rod ebike.
Quick swappable battery pack (we will be offering extra batteries shortly)
Fast 3 hour charging
I am sure Luna will do everything they can. I don't think Sur-ron thinks everything out, like let's say Honda. They designedUSA warranty terms?
