Sur Ron Storm Bee You don’t stop playing harmonica when you get old you get old when you stop playing harmonica poster
When you hear the name Sur Ron, you’re more likely to think of the Chinese company’s popular Sur Ron Firefly (or Light Bee in some markets) electric trail bike. That 5 kW light electric motorcycle can hit speeds of around 45 mph (72 km/h) and scratches the itch for many e-bike riders that are looking for higher speed and power.
But because the bike isn’t street legal as a motorcycle, it has been largely limited to off-road shenanigans.
The Sur Ron Storm Bee was unveiled in 2019 as Sur Ron’s second model, featuring a more powerful design and the option of a street-legal version in addition to a dedicated dirt bike.
I was able to check out the Storm Bee in person and can confirm that it is a huge upgrade compared to the original hobby-level Sur Ron bike.
It is powered by an air-cooled mid-drive motor with a peak power rating of 22.5 kW (30 hp) that propels the bike up to 68 mph (110 km/h).
That should be enough to appease road riders that need short highway jaunts, yet will also hopefully keep the price below more dedicated electric streetbikes.
RGNT No.1 electric motorcycle
The Swedish company RGNT Motorcycles unveiled the retro-styled RGNT No. 1 in 2019, and I gushed over everything.
Well, almost everything. The one area that stuck out like a sore thumb to me was the battery box – a tricky component for many electric motorcycle designers to incorporate well.
The company must have taken notice, because they returned in 2020 with an updated design that improved upon the battery box and left me without complaints.
