The Ultimate Electric Bike Made in California


"...it’s the 73’s neo-minibike form that, for a child of the 1970s whose fondest desire in all the world was to own a Honda Z50 Mini Trail, elevates this new e-bike to bona fide object-of-lust status. With fat tyres and a chunky saddle, Lithium’s debut effort is simultaneously pugnacious and whimsical — exactly the virtues that made Honda’s minibike an icon."

- Matthew Phenix on BBC Autos

How is the battery charged? Does it take 220 V?

Just like your cell phone, in a regular wall unit. Plug it in, and it takes 3.5-4 hours to completed charge the battery if it's flat. Don't worry about over-charging, the controller will just stop when it doesn't need charging any more. Yes, the battery charger is 110-240V so it can be used internationally and does not require a converter. You just need the adapted wall plug per your country.

In my country e-bikes are limited to 250 watt motors, can I ride the Super 73?

The Super 73 has a 1000 watt motor but we can limit it via the computer to operate at 250 watts with a reduced speed limit, to suit local regulations. The Super 73 is an e-bike, not a pedelec (Class 3 according to US standards), with pedal assist and throttle activated power.
