A Promising-Looking Electric Bike
There’s a lot to love about new and upcoming electric motorcycles. The technology is genuinely exciting and although the vast majority of the electric bikes out there lack the range, power, and short charge times that people are looking for, they’re quickly getting closer to being at the point where they make sense.
Recently, I came across another good entrant into the electric bike arena. It’s called the Sur Ron Light Bee and it comes from Luna Cycles. The electric motorcycle comes in two different configurations. There’s a designated off-road model and a street model. The guys over at MoreBikes were able to test the motorcycles. I’ve included that video below.
So, sound pretty cool right? I admit that 60 miles at 20 mph and a top speed of 40 mph isn’t exactly going to change your life or many people’s mind about electric motorcycles, but it’s not bad. The bike makes more sense as an off-roader to me. I could see loading one of these up in my pickup and going for a nice ride at an off-road park.
It would honestly work pretty well for me as far as a commuter bike or a grocery getter. However, for me, those are short trips. This bike won’t work for many people but it comes with a low price tag of around $3,900. Luna actually has them on sale right now. You can pick up an off-road version for a mere $3,300. Not bad. Unfortunately, I’m out of space in my shed for more motorcycles.
