It has a 36-volt 9Ah lithium-ion battery delivering power to a 350-watt direct drive rear hub motor. Rider can simply pedal the bike with no assistance; they can go with the motor only, to a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h); or, they can go faster by both pedaling and using the motor. The bike has a motor-only range of 20 to 25 miles (32 to 40 km), with a full charge of the battery taking two to three hours from a regular outlet.
