Introducing the Lineup
Electric Dirt bikes have become increasingly popular in the past few years and for a good reason. These bikes are quiet, light, and powerful. As an avid dirt bike rider myself, these bikes may not be able to replace every type of riding, but there is definitely a place for these bikes to flourish.
Let me spend some time introducing you to these bikes further.
Sur Ron Bikes:
The Sur-Ron can be broken down to 2 primary bikes.
- Sur-Ron Light Bee (AKA Sur-Ron X): This is the base model of the electric dirt bike that everyone has come to love. This bike is easy to ride and is popular for the variety of upgrades you can do to improve the performance and looks of this bike.
- Sur-Ron X-Bike: This is Lunacycle's branded version of the Sur-Ron Light Bee. Lunacycle offers upgrades to belt drive, larger battery, and lights.
- Segway X260: This bike is the Sur-Ron Light Bee with some small color and pricing differences. The noticeable difference is that this version comes with a Segway App that allows you to control and change all of your riding settings like the amount of power and regenerative breaking.
- Sur-Ron Light Bee S: This bike is similar to the Light Bee but smaller, slower, and less range. This bike has not been as popular as its bigger brother, and therefor is difficult to get ahold of.
- Segway X160: This is the Sur-Ron Light Bee S and has the same differences that comes with the X260. Similarly, the Segway App for this bike allows you to control riding settings like power and regenerative breaking.
- Talaria Sting: This bike is similar to the Sur-Ron in a lot of ways but comes stock with some differences that people tend to appreciate. This bike comes in heavier than the Sur-Ron Light Bee, but offers bigger battery, taller seat, and slightly more power among other difference. There tends to be less options to upgrade the Talaria, but this does not matter to some because it comes with noticeable improvements over the Sur Ron.
- FreeRider: This is Kuberg's primary competition against the Telaria and Sur-Ron. Although this bike comes in more expensive than those others, it comes with much more power and is a significantly lighter bike. To reach the same quality of components (brakes, suspension, power, speed, etc.), the Sur Ron and Talaria need significant upgrades that could cost you between $5,000 - $8,000. The primary disadvantage to the Free Rider is its battery size. The battery comes in smaller than the competition and because of the power available, you can run out of battery quicker than a similar sized battery on a Sur Ron or Talaria.
- Ranger: This Kuberg Ranger in unlike any of the competition. It shares the high quality components and power as the FreeRider, but offers a very different riding position that keeps your center of gravity low and allows for a very comfortable but capable ride. Similarly to the Free Rider, for the Sur Ron or Talaria to compete with this bike would require significant upgrades. This bike comes in at a similar weight to the Sur-Ron but, unlike the Free Rider, comes with a much bigger battery.
