Super73 R-Sequence e-bikes unveiled with 2,000 W motor and 75 mile vary
When Super73 teased its upcoming electric bicycle announcement last month, I by no means anticipated one thing this epic. However the model who was there at first of the electrical mini-bike craze is again with a brand new (and premium) providing: the Super73 R-Sequence electrical bikes.
Unveiled: Super73 R-Sequence e-bikes
The R-Sequence takes the unique Super73 electrical bike design and cranks it into overdrive.
Meaning a robust motor, larger battery, full suspension, prime quality parts, built-in tech/good options, and an aggressive design.
We’ll begin with the motor. It’s a 750W steady unit, however that’s a nominal 750 watts — as in 750W in title solely. Out of 4 energy modes, the primary three mode enable the motor to peak at 1,200W.
The Super73 R-Sequence ships with an ordinary Class 2 e-bike setup together with a 20 mph (32 km/h) prime pace and a practical hand throttle. However three different experience modes provide Class 1 operation (pedal help restricted 20 mph), Class 3 (pedal help at 28 mph) and Limitless Mode (full 2,000W peak energy and throttle management as much as 28 mph). Super73 explicitly states that Limitless Mode just isn’t for public roads however reasonably to be used on non-public property.
Super73 really lists the highest pace of Limitless Mode as “28mph +,” which means that riders may even be stunned with a good increased prime pace. Considering the “20 mph” Super73 S1 took me up to 25 mph, I wouldn’t be shocked to seek out that the R-Sequence overdelivers on pace as nicely.
The 960 Wh battery on the Super73 R-Sequence is among the largest batteries discovered within the electrical bicycle business. It’s constructed with 21700 Li-ion battery cells and is massive sufficient to offer as much as 40 miles (64 km) of vary beneath throttle-only operation at 20 mph (32 km/h). Add in your personal pedal help and the bike can attain a most vary of 75 miles (120 km).
In contrast to earlier variations of the Super73 e-bike, the R-Sequence provides full suspension. There are two completely different fashions to select from, the R Base Mannequin and the RX Premium Mannequin, and every has a barely completely different suspension setup.
The RX Premium Mannequin consists of an adjustable inverted entrance shock and a coilover piggyback monoshock within the rear. In case you weren’t conscious, we’re speaking practically mild electrical motorcycle-level suspension right here.
Different excessive finish parts embody 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes on outsized rotors, highly effective LED head and tail lights, Super73’s proprietary new 5-inch extensive tires and choices for options like a two-person seat, passenger foot pegs, IoT connectivity for smartphone alerts corresponding to anti-theft warnings, horn, flip alerts, and extra.
In truth, a variety of these choices are literally customary parts on the R-Sequence Premium Mannequin.
All of those new options come at a price, although. Or maybe two prices: value and weight. The R-Sequence weighs between 76-80 lb (35-36 kg). And the value ranges from $2,995 to $3,495, relying on the mannequin.
However if you happen to place a pre-order, you may take an extra $500 off the value, making the beginning value $2,495. That’s not way more than the present high-end Super73 S1 providing, which is a pleasant bike however lacks lots of the additions discovered the within the R-Sequence. That low cost ends on February 28, although, so don’t wait too lengthy. Pre-orders open right this moment, and you may test them out on Super73’s site. Deliveries are anticipated to start this spring.
