Velec R48 Video Review – $2.3k Comfortable Step-Thru Ebike with Lights & Fenders

https://electricbikereview.com/velec/r48/ The Velec R48 is a feature rich, step-thru cruiser, with adjustable handlebar, suspension fork, suspension seat post, and extra-large sprung saddle for comfort. Thicker spokes provide wheel strength, the tires have puncture protective lining to reduce flats, and the plastic fenders and chain cover should keep you clean and dry. Priced fairly well considering it comes with lights, has two optional battery capacity upgrades, is available in two frame sizes, three colors, and is supported through dealers with a one year comprehensive warranty. The 8 magnet cadence sensor isn’t as quick to respond as the 12 magnet or torque sensors found on some other products, motor inhibitors cut power instantly and the twist throttle can be shut off.

Seems like a very nice package for the R48 but the higher-end R48M should have true integrated lights, higher end front fork and hydraulic brakes to be in-line with their retail price.
I’m looking to buy two bikes and would appreciate folks reading this to chime in on comparable bikes to the R48M (mid drive model)… step through cruiser, mid drive, integrated battery….
The R48M is so close but the non-hydraulic brakes, manual lights and low end spring fork is a show stopper. Fingers crossed 2019 models improve on these…

3 years on the frame? I’ll stay with my Juicedbikes CrossCurrent S electric bike thank you. Plus $500.00 cheaper too. Bottom line buy a Juicedbikes instead at least the light is connected to the LCD panel and button. In several years I’ll be buying a new electric bike, I would never buy this bike even if my life depended on it.

How has the fee and intro disclaimer affected subs and views?
