    Zen Electric Bikes in the News / Media

    It'd be great if there can be some degree of standardization of batteries across different ebikes. So that batteries can be swapped across ebikes. Also good to have common charger , great if we can have USB C type chargers for ebikes batteries. Good to get rid of proprietary form factor...

    Zen Photon - [1000Wh] battery, [500W/120Nm] Torque-sensing motor w/ Throttle, USD 3799 [Pictures and Specifications]

    I am a fan of bafang motors as it is not a proprietary one and can be fixed easily by any one as parts are easily available if needed. I avoid custom motors as being developed by many bike manufacturers.

    My review of the ZEM Samurai

    Thanks' for Taking time to review this ebike. If I buy samurai, I'd keep your inputs in mind. I ride Serial 1 Rush Cty Speed ( have 1000 miles ) and it has been an absolute pleasure to ride this bike with Enviolo AutoMatiq. With AutoMatiq, I don't even need to change any gears which I love...

    Zen Wave - [750Whr] battery, [500W/65Nm] motor, Torque sensor w/throttle, 4-piston brakes, USD 2199 / CAD 2999 [Pictures and specifications]

    Would you be incorporating these innovative battery features across all your models ? Also, curios, if batteries are compatible across different models ? I can se Bosch motor may not take these batteries. I am eyeing your other ebike: Photon for my next purchase.

    Zen Photon - [1000Wh] battery, [500W/120Nm] Torque-sensing motor w/ Throttle, USD 3799 [Pictures and Specifications]

    Congrats to Ravi for such an awesome bike. I use enviolo automatiq and absolutely love it. I think automatic transmission with no maintenance is the future like car. Hope you offer Photon with Automatic transmission, I'd buy one for sure :-). Mid Belt drive with automatic transmission with...

    Costco Next Out of Stock for Current

    I think Priority does not want to sell bikes thru costco for 20%.

    Zen Samurai - Built in Canada - shipping since June 2022

    These bikes look cool. Just curious about the weight of the bikes without second battery: for both Enviolo and Kindernay hub. I read kindernay hub is couple of pounds lighter.

    'Zen Skunkworks' - a new model in the development

    Hi Ravi, I have had bad experiences with derailleurs so a mid drive, IGH with China is good for me. I don't really care much about belt drive but IGH with chain is what I want. ~$3K USD if i buy a cargo ebike.

    'Zen Skunkworks' - a new model in the development

    Hello Ravi, Just curious, why your cargo bikes are not belt drive with IGH ? From my experience, I don't really care much about belt drive but I'd prefer at at least single speed chain or 3 speed IGH with chain. I have had many bad experiences with derailleurs and I don't like them generally...

    'Zen Skunkworks' - a new model in the development

    Thanks Ravi, I saw one of your videos about reducing the ebike battery cost and having standard ways to charge all batteries ( e.g. USB-C ). If batteries are generally interchangeable, and can be charged using standard cable that'd be a great move forward for ebikes.

    'Zen Skunkworks' - a new model in the development

    Ravi, If I want a spare battery for zen ebikes, can I buy it from other sites ? Ideally, I want a bike which uses minimum proprietary parts , can these parts can be sourced from other neutral sources. Thanks,

    Evelo Galaxy Lux vs. ***??????*** HELP!

    I think 26 inches or 27.5 inches tires are much better. vvolt centauri is a good ebike.

    Evelo Galaxy Lux vs. ***??????*** HELP!

    I ride serial 1 rush speed with enviolo automatiq and love the drive train. I have been riding derailleur bikes for last 20 years or so but don't like derailleur. My last ebike had derailleurs and needed frequent adjustment.

    First commuter ebike: Level.2, Prodigy, Vado 3, or another mid-end?

    I have serial 1 rush speed and I like the idea of quiet drive train, no shifting needed, automatiq shifting of enviolo and I commute and easily go above 25mph so class 3 is needed for me. If you can, checkout zen ebikes samurai.

    Anything significantly new/different coming for the 2023 season?

    Keeping macro economic in view, I think prices of all ebikes would fall a lot. A lot of crazy things happened during pandemic due to trillions of dollar printed by FED.
