Considering the weight, this seems like a "too good to be true" deal. The pit bike reference is also a bit of a turn off.

What is a "sand forged frame"

$3400 and "pit bike" is the turn off?

Remember kids, 45mph is dangerous.

Have you seen the cost of new bikes?

Off and on since I was ten. I have a wr450f currently, but a 120# bike with a 45 mph top speed and 40 mile range is appealing for the trail type riding that i do these days.

I ride tight techy single trail too (although had a break for a bit), and yep, this is the bike for it

Do it

It says it's a Honda 50 and 100 killer. I'm sure it would be fun but I don't think it's meant for adults.

Not to mention, electric is not what I would want in the woods. Running out of gas sucks bad enough. 40 miles is a pretty weak days ride.

Let's throw this out there then...

What if you have a few bikes already. That fulfil all genre's of riding...except for secret silent missions

Maybe along trails where it'd be nice to not be heard

Read between the lines all you want


I want an electric bike as soon as they hit that 'dollar-range-power' ratio sweet spot.

There's a zillion of us waiting, ready to go

PS. @YotaAtieToo. I guarantee we could take you on tracks where the 40 mile ride we took you on couldn't end soon enough you'd be absolutely rooted, and not OntopBear style These tracks are the ones where these sort of bikes would excel.
They're not for open throttle wide terrain, desert racing, hill climbing for hours. Wrong scenarios, they are purpose specific

Well yes, 40 miles of actual tough single track would kill most. Around me (Wilson is local) there is all that much and a lot of it is connected by miles of dirt roads. So you usually rack up the miles on a day's ride.

Fair enough, but...

Make tracks then?

Is it illegal there to make your own single trail?

If it is illegal then you'll be needing a silent bike. Hmmmm. Hey

This was my concern with the pit bike comments. I did not seek out any videos to get an idea of scale. The big companies are starting to work on/ towards electric bikes, it will be the future. I'm not saying this $3500 bike is the future, but the specs seem appealing, unless the scale is just whacked. I see it as a mx/ MTB hybri. If I can get Ashlyn started on the 50, I'll move her to an Osset as soon as the training wheels come off. 40 miles is plenty around Gold lake, where we are that would need to be stretched out to 60-100.

Illegal without certain permissions. Some MTB guys got busted for building extensive trails on public lands close to home. However, there is a trail stewardship in the other area that I mentioned and I have a friend working for them that is building some killer trails.

I would like to see some specs on the suspension. If it is as light as it says, if the suspension has some decent travel that would almost be like a downhill bike with the ability to be the shuttle vehicle and downhill bike. As long as it can support the weight of an adult.

It's got 19s f/r, normal fullsize bike is 19/21. So it doesn't appear to be that small. They mentioned the xr100 so I'm guessing that's what they're trying to complete with.

It's cool at all, but I'd take a crf150f for 1/3 of the price and 5x's the range.

Wtf is an osset?

Heavier, less suspension and braking. Matt's kid has one, it's fine for a 12 yr old. If that is what this is, then it wouldn't be worth it. My wife's ttr125 was pretty similar, i could throw it around but wouldn't want to really ride it

Does it seem strange that they use a USB charger? My wheelchair that has a big battery pack has a much faster charger. (looks like a 12 V car charger) Technically I could charge it with USB but it would take days. Seems strange to me.

Is it a 150 or 100?

Danielle had a 150f with a few minor up grades. It was a total blast, it was small enough to throw around but had just enough power. Much more than a ttr125. I honestly thought about getting rid of my 2 stroke 250 and getting one for myself.

They also make a crf150r which is basically a scaled down crf250.

I noticed, but at 60v assumed there was more to it and didn't become hung up on the language. There was plenty of other errors in the text.

I assumed that it meant it had a USB port to charge stuff off the battery.

There are a few videos on you tube, appears to be roughly mtb sized, a little smaller than a full size mx bike, but larger than a 110.

We bought one for $1200 like 8 years ago and sold it for about the same 3 or 4 years ago. There was a few to choose from at that price range then.
