Biktrix Moto is a new e-bike from Biktrix, a company that markets an extensive line of electric bikes in North America. Biktrix is a company that focuses on making high quality e-bikes, including the Biktrix motorcycle. Biktrix is also active in the wholesale market for e-bikes, which has helped them grow as a company and create a large customer base. At first glance, the Biktrix Moto e-bike looks like a replica of mountain bikes, including the front-wheel drive models and the handlebars. However, the real difference is found in the spec sheet, where the Biktrix e-bike offers many specifications and innovations that are not found on any other model in the company’s lineup.
Starting with the specs, the Biktrix Moto e-bike boasts 750 watts of continuous power from Bafang, a rear hub motor that is very similar to a sportbike. While most of the competition uses twin disc brakes, Biktrix uses single disc brakes, providing better performance and braking response. Riders can opt to have the motor fully limited to only 500 watts and above, or opt to have the unit limited to just 20 watts. The throttle on the Biktrix has a button instead of a dial, and riders have the ability to adjust its sensitivity via a potentiometer. The throttle responds rapidly, with full acceleration achievable in as little as five feet, and the responsive nature of the throttle continues long after the e-bike has passed the speed break point.
Another innovative feature of the Biktrix Moto is the patented “Kawasaki-lin” frame design. This frame allows the motor to sit lower to the ground, improving efficiency and stability while also reducing weight. The Kawasaki-in frame features an optimized weight balance, allowing the rider to enjoy longer rides while also feeling comfortable while maintaining high levels of control. The frame also provides superb off roading capabilities with easy wheel mounting and mud flaps.
One of the biggest features of the Biktrix brand of motorbikes is its suspension system, which uses a three-part suspension system that provides superior off roading performance as well as riding comfort. The three parts of the suspension system include the spring, the shock, and the strainer. The strainer acts as a fifth wheel, relieving pressure off of the suspension, and the spring gives the motor a smooth ride through a precision tuned compression damping system.
Biktrix also features a unique new technology called the pedal assist mode. The pedal assist mode on the Biktrix allows the rider to use both their foot and the throttle for added control, and it lets you ride more aggressively because of the increased power transfer from the motor to the rear wheel. With the throttle acting as your foot’s brake, you can accelerate more aggressively without losing speed thanks to the power of your engine. Bikes with the pedal assist mode can reach up to 35 mph, and has a maximum speed of 25 mph. This is a huge advantage over other electric bikes in today’s fast-paced, competitive motorcycle world.
A popular feature of many new electric bikes such as the Biktrix Moto is the cadence sensor. The cadence sensor makes your motorcycle more efficient by automatically adjusting the throttle and the suspension to keep the bike balanced at all times. Bikes with this feature are known as EPOS bikes, or electronic pedal assist systems. They are available in two different models, the Biktrix 250cc and the Biktrix 650cc.
The Biktrix Moto also has a unique self-cleaning system called the Cruise Control. It is similar to the Cruise Control found in car engines, where the engine is designed to self-clean every time the vehicle is driven over a set number of miles. Because an electric motor is running, the system allows the bike to run more gently and smoothly for extended amounts of time, improving fuel efficiency, and decreasing the amount of excess heat buildup from the engine. This helps moped riders save on fuel by reducing the amount of horsepower that is needed to propel the moped over a set number of miles per gallon. The Cruise Control kicks in when the moped rider begins to accelerate and again kicks off automatically when the moped rider slows down.
One of the most important aspects of the Biktrix Moto’s operation is its lithium ion battery pack. The battery pack helps power all of the system components while also storing energy for use when the rider tires the machine out. The dual battery setup allows riders to swap batteries at any time without having to charge the existing battery. The battery is also designed to be compatible with most mopeds. As these are two very different types of motorbikes, it would be wise to do a little research on the capabilities of these models before committing to a purchase.
