    Good looking bike! How does it handle the PNW trails? Going up some of the steep stuff?

    Ok, here's a couple more for the thread. One from the Idaho desert and one from the mountains.

    Hmm... definitely a Sur Ron bike branded as a Segway. Will be curious to see if it will be much different (suspension, motor, controller) than the Luna Sur Ron's or if it will be essentially the same just with different stickers.

    Haha. It is a SurRon. Good find. I keep flipping back and forth between pics. It's identical except for the little frame cutout at the bottom. Segway must be private labeling it. Wonder what cells are in the bigger X260 pack.

    Segway is the largest share holder in Sur Ron. https://electrek.co/2019/11/05/segway-unveils-electric-dirt-bike-sur-ron/

    Interesting. I saw it and thought to myself “that looks a lot like a Sur-Ron” but didn’t take time to compare them.

    I wonder if Segway will capitalize on their “premium” namesake on the model or upscale it at all?

    Segway also lists that it will have 3 speed modes instead of just 2. Doesn't list regen braking like on my X version but that'd be a must have for me with all the hills where I ride.

    info on the Storm Bee from Electrek at EICMA. Time to start saving my money! Speaking of money we still need, it's obviously going to cost more than a Light Bee but hopefully cheaper than a Zero FX or a Cake Kalk or the Altas.

    30HP / 382 lb-ft torques!
    96V 4.6KWH battery
    62 Miles city range so figure somewhere range 40-50miles depending on speed
    4 Ride modes
    ABS
    18" rear / 21" front
    290mm (11.4") suspension travel
    45 deg climbing angle like Light Bee
    260 lbs

    I like what I am assuming is that left hand rear brake setup. I'm in the process of putting together a LHRB for my Alta using a clutch master which requires a custom hydraulic line, using that master would have made my life a bit easier.

    I was up in the mountains yesterday on my Alta and was wishing I had my LHRB installed the whole time, Lol.

    Can't wait for these to hit the trails, very curious how it stacks up to the Alta's.

    Yeah the LHRB is nice it's definitely the bees knees on the Light Bee. Hopefully will be cheaper than the Alta, if the Alta were cheaper I would own one right now.

    I have about 200 hours of riding time on a stock sur ron which I own in italy. and I love it! but now im conflicted. I also live in california. And here in socal, I have to drive 1 hr or +hours to ride Motobikes, so i cant leave the surron bike charging while i eat lunch like in italy. and the riding in socal is generally much more wide open desert type riding vs tech single track in italy.

    so I am torn between the surron X and a KTM 350. I change my mind every day, I cant decide what to buy

    SURRON + cheaper, lower maintenance, less skill required, more fun on tech trails, more fun on downhills
    SURRON - easier to break stuff, brakes suck, throttle cheap and weird, charging, cost with upgrades and batteries can get close to KTM price - 3 batteries and you are at KTM, I am borderline too large for the SURRON (6f2 195 lbs), I assume almost zero resale value, especially for any mods or addons you do

    KTM + more fun in open desert area with lots of sand. Can ride as much as you want, just add gas. hill climbs, established decent resale, stock bike will be better than i can ever ride, zero mods needed
    KTM - motor maintenance, noise, so much heavier, changing gears all the time

    anyone have any thoughts?

    It’s not a first bike, or even a second bike. More like a seventh bike. And just a play one at that. Not really a mini moto imo, a little mx bike would eat the LBX’s lunch. But as a DH MTB with a motor, Two Thumbs Up. Figure about $6K in it to make it more stout, plus maybe a spare batt! That’s not the best value when budget constraints dictate only a few bikes.

    I nixed idea of ASI 4000 controller and 72v batt, I think that is just asking for trouble off-road.

    I can’t figure out why ppl say the brakes suck. I one finger front and rear on dirt from wfo with 60T, about 35mph, down to corner entry speed. Guess heavier riders on street going 50 need more for stop signs?

    SoCal desert on an LBX?!? A 350 is on wimpy side. I’d be on my 500.

    Seems silly to transport an Ebike to only ride an hour or two imo. Better for yard or to ride from house.
