  1. @regisiam I ride a busettii Big 50 Mile Bike and I have had it for 3 months and it is great. My friends have other e-bikes but they are way slower and wimpier than my Busettii. I can get up to 60 miles on one charge and the top speed is about 27 MPH but they are selling at just $1700 now. BECAUSE OF THE BIKE paths and the right shoulder of the road I can go faster than cars across town. I want to try Busettii’s new VORTEX mountain bike soon ! It goes 85 miles on one charge. ciao

  2. Yes, I ride a busettii Big 50 Mile Bike ! I have had it for 3 months and it is great. My friends have other e-bikes but they are way slower and wimpier than my Busettii.

  3. looks hot ,but overpriced.
    Where is the saving when you pay 3000$ cash and you have to change the battery after each 500 recharges. The battery cost is 700$. The minimum cost will be 3000$ and 700$ / year. The bike also is a great prey for theft because only the wheel cost around 500. At 1000$ + lithium phosphate batteries (last longer) = Ultra motor become Microsoft of motors. If the price stays high other brands will take the market share for sure.i stick to my scooter for now lol

  4. @ScooterNews The music sucked and was even more annoying given the fact that you were talking to the ground.

  5. That was terrible. The video was aweful, the music annoying and I can’t hear a word you are saying. The running footage looks like bad Blair Witch outakes. On top of that, your facts are wrong. I have owned this bike for almost a year and can say that you have had no more than a day’s experience with it.

  6. i own one. most of my experiences have been favorable. but if you buy one, replace the standard tires with 16″ moped tires (16″ moped tires fit on a 20″ bicycle rim) the standard kenda kraze tires are weak, punter prone and the moped tires handle 100% better.

  7. @kuiintin The battery holds until the charge is over (empty)
    To recharge it you need some knowledge of how to plug the adapter.
    When you crash the bike nothing happens in the worst case scenario the black box can always be recovered. The best part is that this bike saves you money because it cost only 3000$ its less expansive than a brand new car or a brand new small plane. i hope i answered your questions . Thanks

  8. hi ive got some question !?

    how Long Hold’s Batery !?
    How To Recharg it !?
    if you crash this bike with something would be destroyet
    it is expensive to buy !?

    Thats all thnx 😛

  9. what about moisture getting into the starter switch and what would happen to the baterries if you got caught in the rain?

  10. The real question is: How long will the batteries last? How many cycles? I have yet to find a review on that.

  11. way to expensive for that bike, the price will drop though, which is good and when it does it will take off, but for the moment it will be niche

  12. j’ai essayé le Metro A2B d’Ultra Motor. Avantage premier son look qui interpelle par la discrétion des batteries.

  13. @wayfarin I think in most countries they can. My statement was oriented at North America. It’s just ignorant ones like US and Canada, who are based on a car culture, and consider a motorcycle nothing more than a toy that are going to nail anything like this. Motorcycles aren’t even allowed to use HOV lanes in many cases, let alone lane split. Bicycles can do whatever they want of course. That’s the grey area that makes this appealing; but too many of them will draw attention.

  14. well actually these are not so fast and they have really weak batteries. For over $2600 you would expect they would give you a $500 battery but actually its about a $200 battery and they go slow ! 20 mph is not fast and 18–22 miles per charge is also bottom of the bucket. The Busetti 50 mile Bike and the Vortex can go over 27 mph and ride for 55–80 miles on one charge. They give you a REAL battery 48volts 13 ah on a soft pack li-ion battery and both cost under $1800

  15. And the real advantage of electric ‘bicycles’ is that you can lane split through traffic. Just wait until the authorities figure out that this is basically a slow motorcycle.

  16. does it consume alot of electricity? how long does the battery work? can you carry it up an apartment?

  17. Its a really nice bike! its the fastest electric bike on the market at the moment. I’ve got a bright orange one which draws lots of attention! If your looking for one in the UK, you can get one from ww w.smartebike. co.uk based in North London!

  18. This thing is very cheap too only 3000$ ! if you want to save money than you need to pay more.
    My new gas scooter aprilia cost me 2400$ only 5$ a month for gaz and will smoke this bicycle in any condition . I think 3000$ for this bike is really a bargain the company should at least place a minimum price tag of at least 5000$ so that everybody can afford and save money .
