IMPORTANT NOTE: These bikes are illegal for road use in SA. We are not yet registered with the Department of Transport and the Sur Ron China Factory is not yet ready to embark on the safety requirements. (Please note if you ride on the road it is at your own risk)

At the moment the global demand for this bike exceeds the supply. The factory is producing more of these than some popular motorcycle brands. We are pleased to have a good relationship with the Chinese factory (the new power supplies will have kettle plugs because of our inputs), and we will be supplying these here at the same rate that global supply can be fulfilled. This is the same as the Segway branded X260.

Incredible Battery

On any electric bike, you should take a good look at the battery since it is by far the most expensive part of the bike. Lightweight power dense batteries are not cheap, and if they are cheap they are probably not safe or reliable. The Sur-Ron has a gigantic 60v 40ah pack which is 2400 watt hours (2023 model). To give you an idea how much range to expect it has 4x the capacity as most of today's production bikes.

The battery consists of Panasonic PF cells provided in a well built case that slides in and out of the bike. A microprocessor based battery management system together with a 5000w electric motor provides the tesla electric torque we all want to have for fun.

Awesome Engineering

This is the best electric bike we have seen out of China at any price. Not only is every detail of the bike thought out, it looks awesome as if yamaha or honda built it. Mix that with custom built high performance parts and a casted frame and you can see a lot of thought went into this bike. Sur-ron spent a million dollars in tooling to create this bike and you can see it.

Every detail of this bike is thought out and no expense is spared when needed to make a reliable high performance off road machine.

This medium to large sized bike is based on mountain bike proportions and weights. It's suitable for people from 162cm to 190cm. The low weight enables the powerful electric engine to provide awesome torque. It's a tesla mountain bike. It is the ultimate little dirt bike, as well suited for young or inexperienced riders, but also good for just about everyone. In fact everyone does love it because it is made for fun.

Because it's electric, the maintenance and running costs are totally reduced. You are buying a bike with a big battery which is equivalent to a lifetime of petrol or energy bars.

So, it is fast, and reliable, has a very good range (if you are using it for fun it won't run out before you do), and built with a quality that we have never seen before for an EV out of China. This bike is built like a tank and we are confident it will provide years of reliable service. It has one of the best constructed battery packs ever offered in a small EV. This bike is easy to customize and upgrade, the performance upgrades are limitless from the battery to the controller. This bike has the capacity to be the ultimate hot rod ebike. Quick swappable battery pack (there are now tens of thousands of these batteries and compatibles in global circulation).

Fast 3-4 hour charging with included high quality 10 amp 600 watt charger.


The Sur-Ron is designed for serious off road riding and we have done tests with many drops that confirm the suspension system on the Sur Ron is rock solid.

The Sur-Ron comes with an 8 inch travel DNM back suspension.

Front Suspension is a black DNM Volcano with 8 inches of travel. This is our favorite fork on this bike and now it includes a front fender.


These are solid and proven bikes but like other stuff that comes from China, it’s voetstoets! We can not guarantee anything other than the box we get from China will be delivered to you. We did receive one of our two demo models with a cracked battery cover lid, and the factory has charged us for the replacement part. The tail plastic broke on the first enduro. These are simple to fabricate parts and can be obtained from various suppliers.
