Grizzly 52V Dual Motor Ebike

This is a classy product from Grizzly e-bike manufacturers. It is a commercially successful e-bike. The foundation of its success lies in the duality of its features. 

  • Duality of Features

Not only does it have two motors (one for the front and rear wheel each), but it has two batteries and a dual suspension system as well. The motors of this class of Grizzly e-bikes have a power rating of 1000W in routine and an 1850W capacity for peak power supply. 

The two batteries slightly differ in their aspects. The one with 20Ah is mounted on the frame of the bike whereas the other one is placed under the seat post. The one under the seat post has a rating of 15 Ah. So, the combined rating of the two batteries is 35 Ah. 

  • High Mileage

The manufacturer claims that this bike is capable of covering 55-110 miles with a single charge but the riders must actually expect somewhat less than this. As per the information available to us, this range is 75 miles on average.

  • Good Load Carrier

           This e-bike has been designed in such a way that it can carry two persons at a time. There is a seat-like arrangement for this purpose.

  •   Smooth Ride

This e-bike is designed to provide riders with a smooth, bump-free ride. It comes with finely machined rear suspensions for this purpose. 

  • Option for Drive

This bike gives the rider a choice to choose between front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and both wheels drive simultaneously. This is quite an interesting and indigenous feature. I have not seen this feature in any other e-bike as of now (it might be existing though). 

  • The Tyres

It is generally accepted that fat tires provide the bike with a better grip. This e-bike has moderately fat tires and hence the riders experience a good grip on the road. Moreover, the tyres are puncture-proof which makes this bike a suitable option for riding across all kinds of terrains.

  • Lights

This ebike comes with a front headlight as well as a rear light which makes its visibility quite good. Visibility with e-bikes is an issue and providing the lights is a good solution as it counts as a safety measure and reduces the chances of accidents in low visibility conditions such as at night or in the fog.

Conclusion

We have listed 02 Grizzly e-bikes above. These e-bikes have distinct features which make them an ideal choice for different kinds of riders. I like the 52V dual motor ebike more. The reason for my liking is that it comes with the duality of features which has already been explained in the lines above. This is a great benefit for any rider since if one of the motors goes out of order, he may still enjoy the ride while engaging the second one. The same can be said about its batteries as well. However, we urge the readers to explore the market, take reviews from existing users, and then make a well-informed decision before concluding.
