where does discussion on this belong? Electric motorcycles or electric bicycles?
Not sure, but I like it!
Yup. They've got the right idea from a "utility with a touch of nostalgia" perspective. I like it, even if I might be too tall for it.
I've seen a few of their earlier bikes zipping around; haven't heard much about them otherwise though.
Looks a bit like the old Madass, but it had a 49cc or 125cc gas engine.
750W is not enough to move on its own, the seat is too low to effectively pedal, I think it will flop.
750w is plenty enough to go moped speeds (28mph here) on level ground without a headwind - I can do it on less
I don't think the target market is interested in pedaling
It prolly won't be a good hill climber at all though since it will need to be setup to go moped speeds
For how most people use mopeds it's likely fine - Personally, I have zero use for a moped but I know people that it might be appropriate for, they just want to get around locally on the flat streets we have here and just want to sit and ride, not pedal.
When I loan one of my ebikes to friends and it's easy to tell which ones want to pedal and which just want to sit and ride - sadly enough (at least in my mind) most fall into the latter and they don't understand why I always pedal - I think some of them pedal but only when they think I'm looking
Yeah, sure, that's quite limited use case.
I own a Juiced bike but it's a Hyperfat 1100. A nice complement to my old 02' 1150GS on my winter trips into warmer latitudes. I own one of the very first 1100's and have a bit over 1200 miles on it, and I love it. Not too sure about the new Scorpion, but my buddy owns a HyperScrambler and he has a pretty good Time on it. All in all, I'm impressed with the company.
I think the limited case is more specific in the terrains of Seattle, which is minority in comparison to the most parts of urban electric bike usage terrains.
And San Francisco. LA is too big for a good use case of an electric bike. NYC?
