Motiv Electric Bike Cruiser

motiv electric beach cruiserMotiv Electric Bikes are based here in Southern California and it shows in their electric bikes.

Motiv produces laid-back electric beach cruisers in cool, customized colors for easy riding on sunny California days. But don’t be fooled by the relaxed attitude, these are totally serious electric bikes. Twist throttle activated 500 watt geared motors provide impressive power on demand with a choice of 36 or 48 volt Lithium Ion Polymer batteries.

Motiv electric bicycles use a powerful, 500-watt rear hub geared motor that more than handles the power supplied by the 36v or 48v battery. Geared brushless motors offer increased torque and hill climbing powered by the use of a planetary gear inside the motor. Geared hub motors also allow for more efficiency and battery range which extends battery life.
