SEP 14 2016 BY MARK KANE 4

In the end, the $34,544 Italian bike was pretty well received with:

  • very strong regen (rare use of brakes in commuting)
  • a nice footbrake
  • smooth acceleration control, favorite throttle, very responsive and intuitive
  • useful display
  • DC fast charging capability (CCS Combo)
  • 75 kW power (but motor is 150 kW)
  • more comfortable position than sporty EGO
