I bought this E-Bike to replace my Mountain Bike as my main commuting vehicle as well as a way to cut down on using the local transit. It has so far surpassed my expectations as far as performance goes. I can climb steep hills with the lower gear without killing my battery pack. The batteries are in a plastic case that is held in place by two keylocks. And is removeable so I can charge it at home and at work. Lots of storage spaces. Powerful geared rear hub motor. It also has Electronic Rear Braking which when applied can recover some of the electrical energy lost from braking. I also added a Gorilla Motorcycle Alarm System, seperate 2nd Motion Detection Alarm (for security backup) and a GPS Receiver and a 12V Accessory Power Outlet. The 12V is provided by a seperate 12V 3A SLA Battery I put in the Glove Compartment which I keep charged with a 12V 1watt Solar Panel when the scooter is parked or by a Motor Master 12V 1.5A Smart Float Mode Charger by plugging it into AC power. Also have a Bell wireless bicycle computer so I can keep track of time, speed, distance and temperature as I ride. I also added a FIAMM Freeway Blaster 12V car horn under the headlight fairing to let CAGE drivers know "I am here" when needed. I recently did a shunt mod for more torque, for better from dead stop startup performance. It is about the same size of a Vespa Scooter so you know it's size. It is very comfortable to ride and I feel it is worth every penny I spent on it.
