Practical bike that handles lengthy commutes
Comfortable on long rides
Cool, good-looking bike
Throttle only intermittently works. Headlight same thing. Dies each ride despite 3/4 charge indicated.
Maiden voyage, throttle did not result in speed increase. Minutes later throttle worked. Headlight-intermittently works. Stopped working 1st ride despite having 3/4 of battery left per indicator. 2nd ride-almost made it around the block before motor stopped working. Looks beautiful and is comfortable but not functional. DO NOT PURCHASE.
Purchased in August 2020.

It could be
- Dirty connections on the main battery terminals
- Loose connection in the electrical harness
- Faulty Main Controller
How long does it take for the bike to turn off? is the amount of time always the same?
