Veego 750 Video Review

Power and comfort in one

I already checked out the older version of the Veego 750 a few years ago, but RideScoozy has made some serious upgrades since then. The bike started out great, but new updates make it an ever better deal – and an even better deal.

I’ve seen plenty of comfortable e-bikes and I’ve seen plenty of powerful e-bikes, but rarely do I see them so well combined, and that’s exactly what the Veego 750 delivers.

The true 750W motor really delivers 1400W of peak power thanks to that 52V electrical system and high current controller. This means the bike can unload plenty of power at the twist of the throttle for quick acceleration or more powerful climbing. The motor’s 80Nm of torque makes quick work of both. The bike also reaches up to 28 mph (45 km/h) on pedal assist, making it a Class 3 e-bike – or, you can stick with Class 2 throttle operation at 20mph. As you wish.

But the bike isn’t just a hot rod – it’s also a comfortable cruiser. The Cloud-9 saddle is about as tall as cruiser saddles. Between the soft material, padded sections and springs under the saddle, you’re essentially setting your caboose up in a cloud – then, the front air-sprung fork helps smooth out the front end, and the chunky 4-inch-wide tires soak it all up. the suspension or the saddle are missing.

The tires have plenty of air volume thanks to their fat tire nature, but the 20-inch diameter is still small enough to keep the bike nimble. It also reduces the height of the bike, which means a lower possible saddle height; RideScoozy says it will fit riders 5’4″ to 6’2″. The step-in design makes the bike easy to ride too, especially for smaller riders. But even the tallest will appreciate not needling to throw a long, lanky leg all over the bike.

I also like how the rims use a cast wheel design instead of spoked wheels, which means you never have to deal with spoke maintenance, and in my opinion that has also looks cooler.

The bike doesn’t necessarily fold in the traditional sense, but the handlebars do. This makes the bike shorter, which means you may be able to slip it under a desk or table.

Another note to the bike’s design is the frame-integrated rear rack. It is very sturdy because it is not a bolt-on rack, but rather part of the frame. They say it can hold up to 100lbs (45kg), which means you can easily get a seat in the back to carry kids, or potentially even a very light adult (although it doesn’t). there are no footrests for adult feet).

I hate to keep saying, “But wait, there’s more!”. But there really are.

The list of beautiful pieces continues to grow. There are hydraulic disc brakes for low-maintenance, high-powered stoppers. There are fenders included so it won’t cost you to add fenders to the bike. The LED lights are nice and bright, not just tiny lights that tick the box but don’t cast much beam.

And I haven’t even reached the battery yet! The dang thing is massive at 910 Wh. The 52V system means it has more power than a typical 48V battery (although it’s only about 7-8% more power than a 48V battery – some people might not feel the difference). But the 17.5 Ah is definitely noticeable because it means extra long battery life.

They say 30-50 miles, and that’s totally doable. On throttle-only driving at 20 mph, a big battery like this can easily net you 30 miles of range. If you want to add pedal assist, you can go even further.

At a bike price of $1,999 (currently on sale from MSRP of $2,299), it’s a solid option. Yes, there are cheaper e-bikes. I know someone is going to throw the Lectric XP 2.0 at me in the comments, but I’d say the price of the Veego is worth it thanks to almost twice the power and twice the range, plus high-end parts quality like hydraulic disc brakes and super comfortable saddle. These upgrades give you a better driving experience that lasts longer and is frankly more fun.

It’s not a budget e-bike, and so if you’re looking for value for money, there are more affordable options. But as a high-quality yet still affordable fat tire e-bike, the Veego 750 lands well in just about every metric.

Electric dirt bikes have become a realistic option for kids and their families today with Greenger Powersports’ unveiling of the Greenger x Honda CRF-E2, from a new collaboration with American Honda.

Representing a practical yet exciting gateway to the world of motorsports, the CRF-E2 brings the motorcycling experience to a new group of customers, whose lives are already increasingly powered by electricity. On the one hand, the bike is a fun training tool for young beginner cyclists because it eliminates the need to operate a clutch or shift lever. For kids who already have some two-wheeled experience, the CRF-E2 is a reasonably priced step into real dirt bikes. For both groups, it’s a quiet, environmentally friendly form of motorized recreation that can be enjoyed in more places than traditional mini dirt bikes.

Greenger and Honda CRF-E2 electric dirtbike

Driven by a low-voltage (48-volt) BLDC electric motor with an internal rotor, the CRF-E2 produces a peak output of 3.4 horsepower and 18.4 lb-ft of torque. Its lithium-ion battery has an unrivaled runtime of approximately two hours under ideal conditions on a full charge. The battery can be fully charged in four hours or in two and a half hours with the optional fast charging system. With a spare battery available, it can be replaced in seconds – an exclusive Greenger feature in this class.

The CRF-E2 features high-quality components like a twin-spar aluminum frame, tapered aluminum handlebars, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes with petal-style rotors, adjustable aluminum brake levers and 12-inch aluminum wheels with Kenda Millville K771 knobby tires. Suspension components include a 33mm telescopic hydraulic fork and DNM shock with adjustable preload and rebound damping; front and rear wheel travel is 3.9 and 8.3 inches respectively. With red plastic bodywork and blue and white graphics that mimic Honda Performance dirt bikes like the CRF450R and CRF250R, kids can pretend they’re a Honda HRC team champion.

Greenger and Honda CRF-E2 electric dirtbike

With adjustable hand levers and the ability to change the seat height between 24.8 and 25.5 inches, the CRF-E2 physically accommodates a range of riders weighing 99 pounds or less. Additionally, the maximum output power can be switched between two levels to accommodate different skill and experience levels.

“The CRF-E2 will extend the fun of two-wheeled off-roading to more families,” said Brad Chapman, Sales and Marketing Manager, Greenger Powersports. “The appeal to traditional enthusiasts is obvious, as it’s just a cool little dirtbike. At the same time, it breaks down barriers with people who wouldn’t otherwise consider motorsports, but are already into it. comfortable with the increasingly ubiquitous role of electricity in our society.We can’t wait to see more kids have the chance to experience what dirt biking is all about.

With this new collaboration, the CRF-E2 is available exclusively through American Honda’s nationwide network of participating Powersports dealerships.

“We are thrilled to partner with Greenger Powersports to bring an innovative and accessible electric dirt bike to our customers and dealers,” said Bill Savino, senior director of customer engagement at American Honda. “One of Honda’s mission statements is ‘to ensure the joys of the next generation’, and the CRF-E2 clearly aligns with that goal. We look forward to working with Greenger to develop motorcycling at the to come up.

The MSRP for the CRF-E2 is $2,950.

The CRF-E2 is an officially licensed product of American Honda and is not produced or manufactured by Honda.

The Fiido T1 might not be the most revolutionary e-bike out there, but it still manages to pack a punch in value, making it an interesting addition to the e-utility bike market.

I say it’s not terribly revolutionary because you don’t have to look far to find out what bike it seems to be based on: The RadRunner from Rad Power Bikes.

But despite ostensibly sharing a very similar frame – one we hadn’t really seen on the market until Rad introduced it a few years ago – the Fiido T1 isn’t a direct clone. or even a counterfeit.

These do exist, and many market players are trying to simply eliminate popular e-bikes by producing 1:1 clones.

Instead, Fiido has actually added a number of features and components that increase the usefulness of the bike.

You’ll see what I mean if you watch my video review below. Or keep reading the video below to get all the thoughts in my in-depth review.

Fiido T1 Electric Bike Video Review

Technical specifications of the Fiido T1

  • Motor: 750W rear geared hub motor
  • Top speed: 40 km/h (25 mph)
  • Vary: Claimed 150 km (93 mi) but more like 50% with mixed throttle driving
  • Battery: 48V 20Ah (960Wh)
  • Weight: 36 kg (79 lbs)
  • Brakes: Tektro mechanical disc brakes
  • Price: $1,599
  • Supplements: LED display, front/rear/brake LED lights included, 3 pedal assist settings, thumb throttle, suspension fork, seat suspension and seat post, front basket included, mudguards/rack included.

There really is a lot to love here

There are a number of key components that I really like in the Fiido.

These mag wheels not only look good, they also mean you never have to worry about spokes becoming loose over time or breaking.

The giant headlight mounted on the included front rack gives you a ton of forward visibility and extra storage capacity. I also really like that they don’t charge extra for the front rack. A front basket usually costs at least $50 more at most companies as an additional accessory, and sometimes even more. And while I mention the included accessories, I love that the fenders are also standard. Lights, fenders and baskets as standard equipment…these guys know the way to my heart by not nicking me on every additional component.

The 750W motor is very powerful and allows me to reach speeds of 40 km/h (25 mph) with just the throttle, although I was unable to reach 50 km/h ( 30 mph) promised. If there is a secret unlock mode that takes you beyond level 3 (the highest speed mode available), then I haven’t figured it out yet and no one has been able to share it with me. Even so, 25mph is already a nice increase over the typical 20mph speeds we see in Class 2 e-bikes.

The hydraulic suspension fork helps improve the ride, especially when riding off-road.

The fat 4-inch-wide tires give you that fat bike feel with lots of plush rubber and air under you, but don’t have the same bulk or sluggishness as the fat 26-inch tires.

These are also street-oriented tires, so don’t get too crazy in the mud or you’ll slide like a greased pig.

These tires can handle some dirt and grass shortcuts, but they are optimized for road riding. And that makes sense; it is a utility e-bike after all. It’s meant for racing down bumpy streets, not launching you from the root of the nearest tree.

The giant 48V and 20Ah battery offers 960 Wh of capacity and tons of range.

You’ll never really get the claimed 150km (93 miles) of range unless you go for it suuuuper slow in pedal-assist mode, but you’ll definitely get more range than any other e-bike with a typical 48V 14Ah battery. The Fiido T1 offers almost 50% more battery than these e-bikes, which of course equates to longer range.

The battery is removable by unlocking and flipping the seat, although I found it often snagged on the rail and didn’t release smoothly, even when the key was in the correct unlock setting.

Small issues like these sometimes separate premium e-bikes from good ones, but that’s not really a deal-breaker, in my opinion.

You also get a 7-speed derailleur, which gives you plenty of options to downshift, should you need to. Me? I found myself pretty much leaving it on the smallest cog all the time to ride at higher speeds. If you are in a hilly environment, the higher gears might be more enjoyable for climbing.

I’m not a huge fan of cruise control, so the fact that the Fiido T1 offers it doesn’t really matter to me. I always feel weird when I don’t have sole control of the throttle. I prefer my brain to be the sole decision maker. I don’t want to share speed decisions as part of a committee with the brains of the Fiido T1. But of course just squeezing the brake levers will disengage the cruise control, and I’m sure that would be great for anyone with long, straight sections where they don’t want to keep thumb pressure on the thumb throttle.

The saddle is a little weird, but I found it very comfortable. Between the saddle springs and the sprung suspension seat, there’s a lot of nice stuff under you.

I also really like the rear rack, and the wooden fingerboard is quite nice. The rack isn’t as tall as the RadRunner’s, so it would be a bit more awkward for a passenger’s legs (plus there’s no passenger footrest), but it keeps your load lower and thus lowers your center of gravity. And there’s of course no fancy passenger package with a plush seat available like you can get with the RadRunner.

Disc brakes are fine. They are mechanical, so you will eventually have to adjust the cables as they stretch and break.

But for the $1,599 price tag, it’s hard to complain too much and ask for hydraulic disc brakes.

The price is only $100 above the RadRunner and yet you get so much more like the included basket/fender, 7-speed derailleur, suspension seat and fork, larger battery and higher speed.

Ironically, although the RadRunner has a very basic display with no speedometer, I actually prefer it to the Fiido T1’s display here. The Fiido T1’s screen is abysmal; I can barely read it unless I’m in the perfect lighting conditions. Usually that means the sun is behind me, so I’m casting a shadow on the screen. In direct sunlight, the screen is completely washed out and therefore often unreadable.

Take a look at the video at the top of this review to see what I mean.

Fiido T1 Electric Bike

That’s my only major complaint though. The screen is terrible. Everything else (notwithstanding the battery latch) is actually quite good. And the value here speaks for itself when you compare price and features to the rest of the industry.

I have already reviewed many Fiido bikes. Although I never considered them top of the line, they have always been pretty good, well designed, well packaged and excellent for a mid-priced e-bike.

The Fiido T1 stays true to the company’s positive reputation so far and is a great addition to the utility e-bike market, although it’s definitely inspired by the RadRunner.

These aren’t the Cadillacs of e-bikes (and I’m not even sure the analogy holds truer for Cadillac), but they are great options for value-oriented e-bike buyers who want good performance. without going broke.

Two-minute review

Anyone looking for a great all-around e-bike with a superior power system will find a lot to like in the Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0 (2022). It comes with the 4X You drive system, which means it has plenty of power to harness thanks to the 250W motor and 710Wh battery. Even without power assist, the SRAM 11-speed gear system is a treat to use on its own.

The Turbo Vado 4.0 isn’t designed around the trickiest frames, but that’s a small sacrifice for practicality. It’s one of those e-bikes you can just hop on and off, using the power as you need it.

At the same time, it offers impressive range and hair with plenty of cutting-edge technology, including the brilliant MasterMind bike computer, neat security options and a rock-solid support app. It’s an expensive bike, but the look, feel and riding experience all help reassure you that you made the right choice.

Husqvarna has a long association with Austrian motorcycle manufacturer KTM. In recent years, the Swedish brand has integrated its production process with KTM, and now shares several platforms with the orange company. This has indeed helped Husqvarna roll out exciting new models that stand out from a styling standpoint, while remaining financially viable for the company.

The most popular are undoubtedly the Vitpilen and Svartpilen, based on the KTM Duke platform. For the 2022 model year, Husqvarna has unveiled its international portfolio, which includes the Svartpilen 125, Svartpilen 401 and Vitpilen 401, all of which are redesigned naked motorcycles. Bajaj Auto manufactures the three motorcycles in India, at its factory in Chakan, Maharashtra. The same factory that produces KTM’s 390 line of bikes consisting of the Duke, RC and Adventure.

Starting with the Svartpilen 125, the brand’s entry-level motorcycle, it incorporates components from the KTM 125 range, including the RC 125 and Duke 125. It is driven by the same 125cc single-cylinder engine cooled by liquid that produces 14.3 horsepower and 9 ft-lbs of torque. This engine is mated to a standard six-speed transmission. There’s a trellis frame with inverted forks and a preload-adjustable monoshock in the rear. Front and rear disc brakes, along with a single-channel ABS, handle braking duties. In European markets, the 125cc displacement provides an A1-compliant engine, perfect for young entry-level riders.

The Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen, unlike their Austrian cousins, do away with the sharp, angular styling. Instead, we get a stripped down look with simple body panels. Vitpilen and Svartpilen are essentially identical in appearance. However, there are subtle differences between the two. The handlebars of the Svartpilen, for example, are straight and high. The Vitpilen, on the other hand, gets a clip-on lower handlebar. The Svartpilen is also fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires that can handle light off-road riding.

Husqvarna unveils 2022 Svartpilen and Vitpilen with new colors

For 2022, Husqvarna has revamped the styling of both street bikes. It gave the Svartpilen 125 and 401 a stealthier appearance, with more blacked-out bodywork, as its name, which translates to The Black Arrow, suggests. It also gets a subtle brown stripe under the rear seat. Meanwhile, Vitpilen 401 gets a sleeker color scheme, with white undertones, which more closely matches its name, as Vitpilen literally translates to The White Arrow.

BMW’s mighty R 18 gets a makeover

The Verona Motor Bike Expo was the perfect place to present two bespoke BMW R 18 motorcycles to Italian and European enthusiasts. The product of BMW Motorrad Italy, Italian magazine LowRide commissioned American Dreams to work on the R 18 M project, while the R 18 Aurora – developed by Garage 221 for BMW Motorrad Roma – is the first motorcycle to include a fiber frame of carbon.

BMW R18M

BMW cars are designated by the letter M for sportier variants, but now it is used to designate four-wheeled and two-wheeled vehicles. The brand’s inspiration behind the BMW R 18 M project was the vintage BMW R 18 line. The aim was to give the BMW Cruiser a sleeker and sportier appearance without overdoing it.

Work has focused on the chassis, suspension setup, bodywork and accessories, leaving the mechanics and electronics unchanged like the natural strengths of the R 18. It has also been lightened and has a different driving position .

The R 18 M project was made possible by BMW Italia and the bike’s natural positioning – a powerful, lively cruiser with a big heart and endless torque. With some of the best Italian know-how and companies specialized in this sector, the task of making the sketches was entrusted to designer Oberdan Bezzi. He managed to make the R 18 M an exciting power cruiser without upsetting the essence of the bike. American Dreams took care of the assembly and coordinated the work; Elaboratorio specialized in prototyping and modeling and created the fiberglass tail, tip and windshield from scratch; and Carbon Italy took care of the carbon fiber headgear, intake ducts and other details.

The short exhaust pipe, designed to make the line more compact and allow greater angles of inclination, bears the signature of ER Exhaust Revolution and also gives more prominence to the splendid exposed nickel-plated axis, while the paint has was entrusted to Dox Art Factory.

BMW R 18 Aurora

Garage 221’s idea and desire to create a custom motorcycle based on the R 18 began when it was presented at EICMA 2019. The lines of the new BMW cruiser, innovative and at the same time traditional, deserved “complementary elements and more heritage spirit, from the soft lines of the tank to the characteristic boxer shape,” in the opinion of Pier Francesco Marchio of Garage 221.

The project initially focused on the study of the different sections of the bike, keeping in mind the need to connect new elements in a unique harmony of lines, which is inspired by the cruisers of the 1970s. The BMW R 18 Aurora from Garage 221 highlights the central area of ​​the bike.

The modifications that led to the R 18 Aurora stem from Garage 221’s experience in the BMW world and all the elements used from other BMW Motorrad models. The seat was taken from a 2005 1200 C and the Batwing brackets were made from the indicator brackets of a 1982 R 100 and part of the rear frame of a 1991 K 75. Even for the body color, the code for a 1983 RT 100 is taken as a reference with customization of the graphics in its nuances and intensity. The front and rear fender mounts, saddle mounts and license plate support arms are completely handmade. With help from Leo Vince, the exhausts were designed to make the sound even more full-bodied and alluring. The central component of the R 18 has been designed to give it a muscular and personal look. Natural wood grain was used in the grille of the R 18 Aurora oil cooler as a nod to BMW’s 1960s grille design.

“But the final effect is simply breathtaking,” said Pier Francesco. “Everything is painted to look like a single color, including our oil cooler grille and valve covers. This creates a stark contrast to the cylinder block and bevel gear.”
