The ABC's of E-Bike Batteries: Everything You Need to Know

There seems to be a rumor going around that e-bikes are basically just lean motorcycles.

No, an e-bike is NOT a motorcycle. But a scrambler e-bike is pretty damn close.

If you love the idea of an e-bike but need something with a little more oomph than a typical step-through, a scrambler e-bike may be just the ticket.

Learn all about the scrambler model bike and get a complete rundown of our new take on the style: the Bandit 2.0.

Ok, so if it’s not an e-motorcycle, exactly what is a scrambler e-bike?

So, what exactly is a scrambler? Well, it's not a motorcycle. Or a bike.

Commonly known as a dirt bike, the scrambler is a scrappy xxx built specifically for off-road terrain and comfy cruising.

Originally designed as an ode to the motorcycle outlaw and named after a slightly insane version of moto racing, the scrambler is a unique style of bike.

Typically, a scrambler e-bike:

Rides a little lower to the ground.

Handles both pavement and off-road.

Offers a really comfy riding position.

That's why they make a great all-around e-bike for anyone with flexible riding needs.

This is exactly why we decided to add a scrambler e-bike to the Superhuman lineup…

Fast, comfy, and slick-looking. That's what makes a great e-bike. And the classic scrambler e-bike has all 3 in spades.

It just made sense to create one with a Superhuman flair. And so the original Bandit e-bike was born:

⚙️ Retro pocket bike design.

⚙️ Extra long banana seat for comfort.

⚙️ Twist throttle.

⚙️ Front suspension fork.

⚙️ 20x4" Kenda fat tires.

It's the perfect storm of commuter comfort and adventurer power.

As one of our happy owners says, "This little beast can take you anywhere."

But, it was missing something…

So we upgraded it to the all-new Bandit 2.0!

Same retro vibe. More comfort.

That's what the Bandit 2.0 is all about.

When we revamped our version of the popular scrambler e-bike, it was really important to improve rideability without sacrificing what riders already loved.

So, the Bandit 2.0 still has the original:

  • Retro scrambler e-bike frame.
  • Super comfy, extra long banana seat.
  • Four slick paint color options.
  • High-output 840WH (48v) battery.
  • Convenient handlebar twist throttle.

But we kicked it up a notch and added dual suspension and a built-in headlight.

So now your favorite scrambler e-bike is safer at night AND so much easier to ride.

Here's what dual suspension means for your ride (and your butt):

Just like with vehicles, single axle vs. full suspension can affect how an e-bike handles. Especially for longer rides or on rougher terrain.

When we decided to add dual suspension to the Bandit 2.0, our only goal was to make it twice as much fun.

But we succeeded in making it:

More Durable

Get more out of your ride by reducing the stress on any one part.

More Comfortable

Minimize riding fatigue by reducing impact on the rear wheel, pedals, and handlebars.

More Balanced

Reduce the risk of flying over the handlebars on a tight curve with better balance.

More Stable

Maintain momentum and control of your ride even on bumpy hills.

The only real drawback of a dual suspension is the added weight.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the Bandits:
