After the success of the first model Juggernaut, launched on Kickstarter in 2014, Biktrix have now come up with their new model, Stunner on Kickstarter again with a goal of raising $30,000. The campaign has received a steady start and a number of backers have claimed the electric bike at an early bird price of $1350.
Biktrix stunner is being called as the ‘world’s most comfortable’ bike due to its unique and innovative design which allows the rider to sit up in a comfortable position.
The rider can sit with a stretched back avoiding stress to the shoulders and back yet its performance as at par with the best electric bikes available in the market. The five adjustable levels of motor assist provide levels of motor assistance according to the requirement and the ‘Full assist throttle’ gives an instant boost whenever needed.
The bike is equipped with powerful mid drive motor which ensures that the weight of the bike is evenly distributed along the center of the bike, providing better balance. The high power battery makes sure that it lasts for longer duration while giving best performance.
The in-built state-of-the-art Battery Management System (BMS) does not requires much attention while charging since it cuts off the supply itself for individual cells.
With a single charge, the bike can go 25 km on Hilly terrains and 35 km on flat pavement with throttle assist.In case the battery dies, Stunner can be pedaled like a regular bike without any extra drag.
Biktrix Stunner can be used to climb any incline owing to its 500 W rated crank motor which gives an efficiency of more than 80%. The electrical system of Stunner is compatible with 90% of the bikes and with the help of basic bike tools, it can be swapped on to any bike.
Biktrix Stunner has powerful yet light brakes and uses the popular Bafang mid-mount BBS02 motor which is easily available in the market. The bike gives best performance on dry as well as wet rims while the absence of abrasive materials prevents any damage to the rims.
The success of the Indiegogo campaign will ensure the proper development of the Biktrix Stunner and delivering it to the backers on time, which is estimated to start from December 2015
