Perfect to get around and easy to dink
Performs well in all conditions. Night time no issue due to headlights that gives you ample light. Speed not too bad could be slightly faster current 35k should at least make it to 50k. No matter what get one well worth it and fair price.
Purchased in April 2021 at Pain Stop.

Puri Ebike XL
travelled at 35klms per hour with faultless performance plenty of storage at the rear with a large topbox and under the seat storage great for work gear to be carried to and from. the battery range was said to be 100klms on one charge although i did not test its capacity i was never without power it was awesome. i upgraded to a scooter from this Puri beast great commuter transportation.

Not a Power Assisted Pedal Cycle ..beware the importers/dealers claims
I refer to your application ADDEND3898 for 32 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020A and
ADDEND3899 for 17 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020 lodged on 6 September 2016.
Due to a number of enquiries from other jurisdictions, the Department has recently
reviewed the assessment of power assisted pedal cycles, as defined in the Australian
Design Rules (ADR) vehicle categories. For a vehicle to be determined a power
assisted pedal cycle (AB) category vehicle and be eligible for importation under the
Non Road Vehicle import option it must be a pedal cycle to which one or more
auxiliary propulsion motors are attached and must not exceed a 200watt power output.
The only exception to this requirement is for a “Pedalec” which may have a 250watt ...

Puri Ebike, Are they legal?
A great Ebike and great value, but can we ride them? Unfortunately claims by the company that the Ebike does not require a licence or registration is somewhat misleading, as senior traffic police in Victoria clearly disagree, asserting that the Ebike is a motorbike. Police have issued tickets for Puri Ebike Users, for unlicensed, unregistered and fail to wear a motorcycle helmet, on numerous occasions. Puri claim on their website and management will verbally tell you that the Ebikes are legally classified as pushbikes etc. However, when pres...sed they will then tell you that you must peddle at all times when riding in Victoria to be classified as a bicycle. Police however are arguing that the Ebikes cannot be ridden primarily by solely peddling, therefore when being operated, the electric motor is the primary source of power and therefore a motorbike. Again, the courts will tend to accept the police officers assertions that the Ebikes are motorbikes, even though the law is quite ambigious and needs to be challenged in the Supreme Court for legal interpretation and clarification of the legal definition of a bicycle. DON'T BUY THESE BIKES WITHOUT A WRITTEN GUARANTEE that they are legal, etc. from Puri. Most police don't worry about policing the Ebike, the exception is officers from the Victorian State Highway Patrol, previously known as the State Highway Patrol. A WORD OF WARNING!!!! IF YOU ARE EVER INTERCEPTED BY POLICE FOR RIDING AN EBIKE, IMMEDIATELY START RECORDING THE CONVERATION ON YOUR PHONE. EVEN IN 2016, some police officers will lie and perjure themselves to try and sustain a charge/s. Sadly, magistrates still ACCEPT police evidence, when it's only your word versus the police. In NSW, the Puri Ebikes and other similar electric Ebikes are not legal, as the bicycle seat on a bike must be adjustable. DO NOT BUY AN EBIKE TO RIDE ON NSW PUBLIC ROADS. The Puri Ebikes are a great bike, great value and a lot of fun to ride, however don't think you are legally guaranteed to lawfully ride them on a public road in Victoria.
fantstic bike love it
Had my bike delivered a week ago, i am so impressed with the quality of the bike. I did have a problem with the pedals and rang cherry, graeme came out the next day to fix a loose screw. All good now, best service ever. I love riding this bike and i did alot of research before i bought my XL and kept coming back to Puri bikes. Graeme is a great bloke and im so glad i bought from puri.
Use it to commute from Essendon to Docklands furthest trip was Essendon to Brighton return
In the first year returned it 3 times for battery problems. Stranded many times as battery lasted nowhere long enough to return home, they replaced ^faulty^ batteries relunctantly n only bcos I threatened legal action. My bike has been out of action since I called the police after the mechanic assaulted me throwing me out bcos i would not accept another makdshift battery which all have failed leaving me stranded. They only guaratee the battery now for 3 mnths w a replacement costing THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS. Batteries are dreadful expensive and ...fail completely. The company refused to finally give me a battery at all saying they didnt have any. Dreadful dishonest service decord they are a shonky business the bikes look n ride well but lites fail often n getting repairs involves taxis back n forth to outer suburb Heidelberg w no repairs being completed. Do not buy one if you plan to use it more than once a week for max distance of 30km trip it w die on you. Reported them to consmer affairs for bad service and exhorbitant charges etc, if u get a puncture a tyre n tube costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS AUSTRALIAN. No companies stock their tyre wheel sizes in Australia so 18 mnths later i still cannot get a new battery. Do not trust their male mechanic, the manager is lovely n honest but he is a crook n violent n dishonest horrible experience
great for getting about locally..home- work- shopping- home.. but I wouldnt plan a trip around Aus...you'd need a real long extension cord for that..'not an impossible task...but pretty close to it!' When you DO get your 'hog'... go around..check the nuts n bolts...etc..I would buy a decent cover for it..in a bit of a breeze the cover comes off...aside from that...pedaling is a pain in the AR...rear!..it would be easier if it had more that ONE speed!!
Purchased at Puruebikes.
Great service, loved it.
Graeme and Cherry from Puri eBike XL Series, Bulleen, couldn't have done more. I have had mine for 26 months. I ordered and paid for it over the phone on a Wednesday and they delivered it to me in Ballarat on Sunday, all good to go. I had trouble with some of the LED lights, which they came and replaced, no charge. I had a couple of punctures, after taking the bike down to them, they again fixed at no charge. I would advise to put some green goo in your tyres to puncture proof them. I'm currently considering purchasing a new battery, the first ...one is starting to want charging more often than I'd like, still 26 months, not bad. I still get around 30/40 klms between charges, again OK considering the hills around Ballarat. I haven't had any trouble with the bike mechanical wise, runs beautifully. I took out a 3 year additional warranty. A couple of reasons I chose Puri, 1. A bit more protection if involved in a car/bike collision. 2. More visible to other road users, good lights, blinkers, horn. 3. Good storage space for your shi...sorry, stuff. 4. Better protection from road spray. 5. The cost.
Just a few issues.
prior to buying my Puri, I had an Asiko mid engine driving through the crank. Great to be able use the gears going up hill Orin traffic. It died early this year, After lengthy conversation, all very polite. Cherry was the lady at melb Puri warehouse. we discussed it's performance, what sort of helmet I required, I had a bike helmet, that was all It required. we discussed where I! as going to be using it. we discussed the logistics and cost of delivery. N.S.W. Ballina...I loved it, I had been riding it all around town for a good solid...4 months, had been ordered on a number of occasions with no interest at all from the police.. Don't get me wrong , I loved my PURI. BUT THEY. ARE ILLEGAL IN N.S.W. THE BIKE COST JUST UNDER 1500. DELIVERED. THE FINES I Was given , unregistered motor cycle. not wearing the correct helmet, I had my bike helmet on , should have been a motor bike. the full tally of fines exceeded $1650. I'm only receive the disability pension. it costs me $95 per fortnight, my disability prevents me from walking any distance. I'm only 56yrs old and am not ready to be on a mobility bike. ANYWAY,,IF YOUR CONSIDERING A PURI DIG DEEP INTO THE LAWS REGARDING YOUR PARTICULAR STATE.....NOW IM OUT OF POCKET $3140. SHOPPING IS HELL...WALKING IS HELL AND I AM THE VICTIM OF A VERY SMOOTH SALES PITCHES AND MISINFORMATION. SO PLEASE BUYER BE WARE...
Victoria Police Vs "Puri EBIKE"
Dennis xxxxxx xxxxx, xx, of xxxx xxx, South Melbourne, appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court as Defendant on 18th November. 2015 charged by the Informant, Leading Senior Constable PETER BRADLEY HENRY of STATE HIGHWAY PATROL - CENTRAL 1011 Nepean Highway, Moorabbin VICTORIA 3189 with:
1. DRIVE MOTOR VEHICLE WITHOUT PERMIT Act 86/127.18.1.A and
2. USE UNREGISTERED MOTOR VEHICLE - HIGHWAY Act 86/127.7.1.A and
3. RIDER FAIL TO WEAR MOTOR BIKE HELMET Act SR09/94.270.1.A
PLEA : NOT GUILTY TO ALL CHARGES.
The Case was heard by Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg, who dismissed all three charges based on the MERITS OF THE CASE. ...A “bicycle” is defined in the RR dictionary as: a vehicle with two or more wheels that is built to be propelled partly or wholly by human power through a belt, chain or gears (whether or not it has an auxiliary motor), and b. includes a power-assisted pedal cycle within the meaning of vehicle standards, as amended from time to time, determined under section 7 of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 of the Commonwealth;
Perfect for around town and in tandem with V/line
I also found the lady a little/cagey, but I put it down to her limited command of English. When I went to the warehouse she couldn't help me enough in choosing the right bike for my needs. Where I live there are some steep hilly roads as well as flat roads, the hilly roads do require pedalling but with the motor assisting it's easy going considering the mass of the bike and rider.
Appalling Customer Service/advice etc
I wouldn't buy from this company at all, when I went to look at purchasing their bikes, the woman was really cagey about giving me much information, was pretty dismissive/rude and left me feeling no confidence if anything was to go wrong. Other reviews have said that they've had problems with communicating & getting parts. Do your homework people, there are other models out there. I've just been to ME bikes in Port Melbourne - customer service outstanding and I"m already looking at purchasing from them!
