Trial run on a Sunday with no traffic on the normal work commute.
Short: 12 miles, 35% battery used, complete success range-wise
Long: Speed still not popping over 40 MPH except on downhills
If you watch, I do narrate a half dozen times, while stopped at lights.
4:44 – Throttle issue, roll off pre-turn, back on full, no pick-up, speed drops
7:01 – 1st hill, maintained 40 MPH, not bad
8:51 – 2nd Hill, 35 MPH max, dropped to 32, admirable considering steepness and length, prob “worst” part of commute lack-of-power wise
11:20 – 3rd Hill – steepest thus far, thankfully “passing lane” – accelerated up to and maintained 33, not bad considering
19:19 – 4th Hill, steepest on commute, accelerated from 21 to 26, not bad considering, will see how traffic deals with me during rush hour, usually congested so may not be problem
26:20 – Downhill in Eco; Accelerated from light up to 35 MPH, then suddenly slows to 28 MPH with full throttle. Makes no sense at all
28:52 – Eco mode again, rolled off for traffic, then back on full throttle at 13 MPH. No response from bike at all, flipped to power mode to avoid being hit from behind
36% battery used for 11.9 miles yields an expected full range of 33 Miles
