Summary

A feature-rich electric bike that blends commuting utility and efficiency with cruiser comfort and style, large swept-back handlebar and oversized saddle

Integrated LED lights, reflective Balloon tires, premium bell, and paint-matched fenders and chain cover keep you safe and clean in all types of conditions

Available in two frame styles (slightly different sizes) and three colorways: wavy step-thru in blue and black or rigid high-step in grey and black

The kickstand can get in the way of the left crank arm, the front rack turns with the bike so it's easier to spill (especially when parking), the steel chain protector could rust if scratched

I own two of these, step through for my wife and regular for me. Good luck trying to change the rear tire without destroying the hub. You need the dealer or a reputable bike repair center to do it properly, otherwise a completely enjoyable bike with plenty of power.
