My friend Adam who is the founder of AE Bikes in Australia sent me this article about the yet to be released Sur Ron motorcycle. If the build quality and pricing is anything like the Light Bee, it will smash the competitors. Exciting! Thanks Adam!
As a new star of the electric two-wheeler industry, Sur-Ron has been working hard to bring high-end and high-performance electric bikes to the riders worldwide. Since the first bike LIGHT BEE gets into the market, it’s received ecstatic reviews from worldwide, and people really enjoy the riding of LIGHT BEE. Until now, it’s almost 2 years passed, what new surprise Sur-Ron will bring to us?
Recently, a bike lover saw a full-size electric off-road bike with Sur-Ron’s logo is doing test riding in an industrial park in Chongqing. Luckily, this bike lover took some spy shot. From the spy shot, we can see the estimated stroke of the front fork may be about 300mm, and the performance should come up to the professional off-road bike standard.
Also, we can see ABS is mounted on the front and rear brakes. In fact, for off-road bike, not too many will mount the ABS. With ABS, the safety is enormously enhanced during the riding. The headlight looks like it’s LED headlight. Oh, from the spy shot, we also found the License plate bracket, it means this bike may have the road legal version available. We guess this bike may will have a road legal Enduro or Super Motor version for daily communication use.
Most parts of the bike body are covered by the golden & Black camouflage decal. But accord to Sur-Ron’s consistent style, the frame should be aluminum alloy, and it should be forged to ensure the frame has enough strength and rigidity.
The design style of the motor, battery, controller, seems to be similar to LIGHT BEE, battery is mounted inside of the frame horizontally. Compare the proportion of the rider’s body, we can see the size of the new bike’s battery is much bigger than LIGHT BEE’s battery, therefore, guess the range of this new bike will be awesome. And the motor looks similar to LIGHT BEE’s motor, but bigger size, and with gearbox, may like the same as the rumor said that Sur-Ron’s new bike will have very strong power and high performance. The controller is mounted between the battery and motor, with this kind of composition, the centre-of-gravity is in the middle of the bike, this will enable the bike to have a better maneuverability and flexibility.
Until now, just a few manufacturers make full-size high power electric off-road bike. Sur-Ron fearlessly and strongly step into this competition with KTM, ZERO, ALTA, etc. Who will be the winner? How’s the competition in the future? Let’s wait and see!
