The Sur-Ron Light Bee Is an Electric Bike For On-Road and Off

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.

    Sur Ron

    does have its issues
    but at that price for the performance, in comparison to the cost of the kake kalk and potentially, the Harley prototype ,

    looks like very good value

      I agree with you, Darren. The price is super reasonable for the level of performance you get. It’s far from perfect but looks pretty good.

    This is an affordable toy. If it doesn’t suck, I’m going to buy one. Love this.

    I’ve owned mine for about a year now and it’s amazing. And off-road and on road. It’s the best bike I’ve ever owned

    I have owned and ridden mine since June of 2018 and it’s been a fantastic bike in every aspect. Having raced both motocross, desert and on road courses I’m familiar with motorcycles. This is the most fun bike I’ve ever owned and is Honda in build quality.

      Hey Mark, would you be willing to do a review on this bike for us? This would be a paid gig 🙂
