Hi all. Just picked up a new Magnum scout. Not a lot of information on these bikes as they are fairly new. Hoping to learn more and get tips on these bike for upgrades

Looks VERY similar to the Himiway Cruiser I just bought for $1100 less. :unsure:

MAGNUM SCOUT ($ 2,599.00 – $ 2,699.00, 1 year warranty)

They do look similar. However, I bought local and did not pay the retail price you had listed. The Magnum scout was in stock at the dealer. I was able to compare the bike with other bikes from different manufacturers the dealer carried at the same time.

When I compared the Himiway to the Magnum, the Magnum had a larger battery (Panasonic 19.5 Ah and frame integrated), cassette style rear shimano gear set, 6 levels of PAS, hydraulic brakes front and rear (unsure what himiway has cable or hydraulic).

But perhaps the biggest part was that my dealer and service / support is 12 miles away.

After reading about others who have a hard time getting factory support from Himiway (https://electricbikereview.com/forums/threads/himiway-parts.41012/), I figured the 2-year warranty was hit or miss.

Other reviews online stated that Himiway does not list the specific brand of parts used. And according to the link posted above, most are having to find parts on Alibaba or elsewhere.

That being said, your bike may last a lifetime. No manufacturer is defect free.

I wanted to buy local, have dealer support, didn't want to wait 2 months to get it, and wanted to "try it, touch it, see it" and see the parts used, construction of the bike. The dealer made sure the size of the bike was right for me, anx he is also doing a 500 mile service and adjustment at no cost.

I'm sure you are pleased with your purchase and I hope the bike serves you well. I know I was happy with my decision.

All sounds good except the price $2599.00 a full $1000 more than Himiway. Sure hope for your sake that the local dealer support brings that much value to you. BTW the specs for the battery on your bike was listed as 17.5 Ah same as Himiway as shown on https://electricbikecentral.com/products/magnum-scout

Perhaps you missed the part where I stated that I did not pay full retail?

The battery on my bike is 19.2 aH.


Again, for my sake, it was. The 1 year extra on warranty means nothing if you cannot get customer service from a company.
