- Super73 Launches New Adventure Series Bikes with Rugged Design for Off-Road Riding
- Super73 Introduces K1D Electric Balance Bike for Kids with Regenerative Braking
- Super73 Unveils C1X Electric Motorcycle Concept with 80% Charge in Less than an Hour
Super73 is launching several new electric bicycles, including a kids’ e-bike, and even an electric motorcycle. Their new Adventure Series bikes are created for experienced riders who want rugged bikes and getting in some off-road riding. They feature front suspension across the line, with full suspension available on higher-end models.
They all have more aggressive Super73 GRZLY tires, an extended performance seat with “gripper” vinyl, integrated lighting, and a lower-mounted battery (on the down tube) for a lower center of gravity and better handling.
“At SUPER73, we combine thoughtful design with features riders want on our vehicles. It’s a combination of form and function that sets us apart from the competition and the SUPER73 Adventure Series delivers in spades, so we’re excited to announce the new lineup is available now,” said LeGrand Crewse, SUPER73 CEO. “We are huge proponents of listening to our customer feedback, especially from our Super Squad, while understanding the critical details that take our product to the next level. We’re always evolving our product lineup to reach the widest array of riders possible, showcasing a steadfast commitment to current and new customers.”
There are three different levels in the Adventure Series. The Super73 Z Adventure is the most inexpensive of the three, starting at $2695. Its battery is mounted under the seat, and it features an adjustable suspension fork, front fender, an 8-speed cassette, and hydraulic brakes.
The Super73 S Adventure adds a rear fender, relocated (lower) battery, and extended seat, and starts at $3595. The R Adventure features the same additions as the S model but adds a fully adjustable rear suspension and starts at $3995.
FOR THE KIDS
Super73 has jumped on the powered kids’ balance bike bandwagon with their nicely named K1D, but theirs matches the super-popular mini-bike-style design of the rest of their bikes.
It has no pedals, just adjustable pegs, a direct-drive rear hub motor that offers regenerative braking, and a 60-minute run time. The Lithium Iron Phosphate battery (LiFe PO4) boasts twice the battery life of other li-ion batteries and can fully charge in 45 minutes. If your kid outlasts one battery, you might want to have two to rotate them.
Regenerative braking is a really useful feature, when you roll off the throttle, it comes in and starts slowing down the bike. It aids in braking and truly does save your brake pads.
It has three modes so kids can start riding at slower speeds, then as they learn to modulate the throttle, it can be increased. The lower two speeds can be accessible by the rider, with a locked and secured third “track mode” for more advanced riders on closed courses.
As for styling, there’s a hexagonal pattern on the gum wall tires and the handlebar grips. Riders can choose between Blu-Tang, Sriracha Red, Obsidian, and Prickly Pink color options.
The bikes are available for pre-order for $1295 and will be available to customers in early June 2023.
C1X MOTORCYCLE CONCEPT
Today, April 1, 2023, Super73 is also showing off their electric motorcycle concept, the C1X at an event.
We’re as yet not sure if the concept shown will be rideable, but we know it’s not an April Fools Day joke, as they’ve been taking pre-orders for a while now. Full specs and pricing have not yet been revealed. They’re claiming 80% charge in less than an hour using a standard J1772 plug, range of up to 100 miles and speeds up to 75 mph. Customers can reserve one for $73, and the final bike will start shipping to customers in late 2023.
