Super73 recently took the wraps off its new S2 sport-cruiser mini ebike, building on the Southern California brand’s existing S1 model and bridging the gap to the new R-Series models.
Available this spring, the Super73-S2 is built with an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy frame and adjustable air-spring suspension fork. (The S1 has a steel frame and no suspension.)
“Just like the new R-Series, the Super73-S2 is also equipped with the company’s most powerful and technologically advanced Super73 drive system. It features multi-class ride modes and an all-new connected electronics suite compatible with both iOS and Android mobile devices through the new Super73 mobile app,” the company stated in the release.
It also has an Unlimited mode giving the rider to access up to a whopping 2,000 watts of power via the throttle to reach speeds over 28 mph. The Unlimited mode is intended exclusively for riding off public roads and on private property, Super73 emphasizes.
Like the R-Series, the S2’s electronics suite is capable of receiving over-the-air updates to ensure the bike always has the latest firmware and most up-to-date functionality. An optional IoT module enables additional features including remote anti-theft security, geolocation tracking, and crash detection.
While the previous generation of Super73s are powered by 418Wh or 696Wh batteries, the S2 is outfitted with the same large-capacity 960Wh unit found on the new R-Series bikes. The battery gives the S2 an estimated 40-plus miles of range at 20 mph when using throttle-only operation, and an estimated range of 75 miles or more in Eco pedal-assist mode.
The S2 is outfitted with Super73’s new 5-inch-wide BDGR all-terrain fat tires on 20-inch rims. “The BDGR is the first tire to blend motorcycle and bicycle tire construction methods to meet the needs of this revolutionary vehicle. The proprietary Super73 tread pattern has been designed to improve traction, reduce road noise, and increase stability for both on-road and light-duty off-road riding,” Super73 stated.
The ebike’s 120-millimeter-travel dual-crown suspension fork has an air spring and preload, compression, and rebound adjustment. A two-up seat designed to accommodate both a rider and passenger comes standard, with optional passenger footpegs available.
Other features include a 630-lumen, triple-LED halo front light, integrated brake light, full fender set, and two-piston Tektro hydraulic brakes with 180-millimeter rotors.
