Juiced Bikes has just announced their newest bike, the Scorpion. They claim it’s “Moped meets e-bike”, it’s a class 3 (28mph) bike that claims a range of 75 miles, using a 750W motor on a 52V system, and can carry up to 275 lbs. All this for as little as $1299.
It features a moped-style seat, removeable battery, motorcycle-style headlamp, hydraulic lockout front suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, a sturdy rear rack and more.
There are two variants of this bike. The Scorpion tops out at 28 MPH, comes with a 13 Ah battery that will get you a claimed 45 miles. The Hyperscorpion comes with a 19.2Ah battery, claims a 75 mile range, a 1000W motor and a 30+ mph top speed, which will only be legal on private land in most states.
To say this has already caught on is an understatement. They shot for $50,000 to fund this, it’s already at over $1 million.
