It's time to exit the city! The Smartmotion X-City has been called the Landrover of E-Bikes. It is a seriously capable all-terrain ebike which has a comfortable upright position and an easy-access stepthrough frame. A unique design with so many possibilities thanks to a strong mountain bike wheelset and front forks. The Japanese Dapu mid-drive motor provides plenty of grunt and a generous 15.6Ah battery provides excellent long range riding. Fly into work in your work clothes during the week and head for hills to explore Brisbane State Forest on the weekends.
The Landrover of E-Bikes. SmartMotion have taken their very popular Smartmotion E-City model and amped it up to give a very unique package with the Smartmotion X-City. It is a comfort stepthrough that the E-City is famous for, with a mid-drive motor and all-terrain tyres and wheels with beefy front suspension. This is an ebike you can do anything on, anywhere. Clock up the miles during the week with this as your urban transport and put it through its paces wherever you fancy riding on the weekend. It is designed firstly for comfort, for those who prefer the more upright position, and its all terrain capability expands your riding horizons if you have a hankering for exploring the National Parks and Rail Trails.
This ebike "absolutely nails it in terms of fun, utility and versatility."
NZ Electric Bike Review
The Smartmotion X-City has all the extras that you expect with the E-City - integrated lights, mudguards, chainguard, rear carry rack, kickstand - and its sturdy frame provides good stability. Having the motor mounted in the cranks adds to the handling capability. The 2.35 Nobby Nic tyres give plenty of grip and comfort and having MD35 rims provides plenty of strength. Hydraulic disc brakes will pull you up when it need it most and you will love having a great range of 10 gears when it comes to the hills.
Power and speed when you want it. The Smartmotion X-City is powered by the Japanese-made Dapu motor, a highly respected motor for its outright power and speed. An optional thumb throttle gives you plenty of options but you will love riding the pedal assist. Like the SmartMotion Pacer, you can toggle between the cadence mode and torque mode depending on the ride feel you want.
A generous 15.6Ah battery sits neatly into the rear rack and offers up to 150km range, depending on your riding modes. Superior weather proofing adds to its capability and a handy USB charge port means you can get yourself home again if you need your smartphone navs.
