look up CSC city slicker.

but I would get a surron if i need a low power commuter.

Yes controller and battery were upgraded stock Light Bee runs like 21s so what a difference 21 to 17.




Also CSC has a couple small electric like sk8norcal mentioned there is the city slicker that is like a grom, then there is the monterey and the and the wiz. Then there is the Sur Ron if you don't mind cruising in the bike lanes and have the ability to literally ride everywhere. Hopefully where you are going isn't very far you can expect a range around 30-40 miles.




But yeah these lower power and most importantly lower cost electric motorcycles are coming out soon!

Metacycle


Storm Bee I heard is going to be around $7k


Voge ER10 White Ghost, don't know if we'll be getting this one


Kymco F9 I have no idea if this is coming out here either

All of those CSC "motorcycles" are way too slow.

Well the dude asked for Grom like performance, the Grom must be way too slow for you then. I have a Super Cub and it is adequately fast enough to get me around the city, I even take it on the freeway.

Yeah dude the Light Bee loves to get air, this when they sharpened the jumps at Metcalf. You could really send it.

The Zero SR is back in rotation with an 11mm master cylinder now giving 1-finger braking. My loop leaves me with much more mental stamina than the ICE bike Mana, even accounting for the 100 pound difference. I can expect to rejuvenate faster and get something like an extra 6 hours of productivity a day if I ride the electric bike on the same loop, likely at a faster pace.
