Starting out in 2016 when the market for electric personal transportation was booming, Super73 came out with the brilliant idea of introducing an e-bike with an old-fashioned, yet modern design. Good looks was not the only thing that made these so popular – two famous YouTube vloggers, Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat, were spotted riding their e-bikes. This made the first Super73 e bike skyrocket in sales which made the company dedicate even more towards achieving their goal. The company’s goal to create adventurous community through e-mobility redefined the electric motorbike industry and then new models came along to fit the needs of more individuals around the world.
Super73 SG is the company’s most recognisable model due to its rugged and utilitarian look. The steel frame and army green colour make this 31.75 kg heavy Super 73 a versatile option. The 422 watt-hours battery is removable and the bike comes with 3 different modes – eco, mid and high. The throttle is tuned so that you can ride the bike both off-road and in the city. The seat sits 58 cm high and the single speed gearing allows you to travel 25 km/ h max. The SG has a range of around 50 km, depending on which mode you’re on.
SG1 also has a steel frame but this Super 73 e bike has a 696 watt-hours battery and it comes with three modes that are different than the ones on the SG – eco, tour and sport. The max speed of the SG1 is the same as the one on the SG with the seat height being at 74 cm. This 31.8 kg heavy e-bike has a weight limit of 125 kg and a range of about 80+ km. Charging time takes 3 – 4 hours. The model also has an LCD display and an LED halo headlight alongside the mechanical brakes which come standard on all Super 73 e-bikes.
S2 is Super73’s aluminium alloy version and it comes with a 960 watt-hours battery that provides a whopping 120 km range. Coming in at 33.11 kg, this model is only 2 kgs heavier than the SG and SG1 whilst having a 150 kg weight limit – 25 kg more. The height of the seat is at 78 cm, but you must keep in mind that it can accommodate two people. The S2 comes with 4 modes: eco, tour, sport, and super. The modes can be used at a top speed of 25 km/h. With this model, there is also turn-by-turn navigation, a smart LCD display with Bluetooth connectivity and the option to get OTA (over-the-air) firmware updates.
The ZG Super 73 e bike is a steel frame model with a 313 watt-hours battery and a 125 kg weight limit. This 25.4 kg heavy model has a range of around 45 km and the same top speed as all the above models. The low seat height at 68 cm allows for comfortable rides for riders between 1.4 and 1.8 m tall. The ZG is more of a lighter version that allows you to zip through the city with ease. The battery in this model can be charged anywhere between 6 to 7 hours.
Super 73’s most advanced and powerful e-bike is definitely the RX. The 960 watt hours battery and EPAC 250W motor with peak outputs of 2000 W allow you to overcome any road hurdle with ease and do it for more than 120km. The charge time for this model takes anywhere between 3 to 4 hours whilst there are 4 riding modes and 3 speed levels to choose from.
This makes for a total of 16 different configurations that you can make to customise your riding experience. The RX comes with a unique mode called “Unlimited” which is available on their app allowing users to use the motor’s peak 2000W. The RX also has the same smart features as the S2 including anti-theft security and geolocation which Super73 is making available through an IoT (https://www.iotforall.com/what-is-iot-simple-explanation/) module.
How Long Do Ebike Motors Last?
E-bikes are known to last for a very long time, usually up to around 16,000 km. This, of course, largely depends on how you use the e-bike and the quality of its parts.
How Often Should I Charge My Ebike?
While charging frequency depends on usage and battery capacity, ideally you should charge your e-bike when the battery percentage is between 30% and 60%. You don’t need to always let your e-bike discharge completely.
Can You Use An Electric Bike As A Normal Bike?
While this can vary from model to model, for the most part an e-bike can be used in the same way as a bicycle with the help of features such as zero assistance.
