Tern HSD P9 Review

  • MSRP: $3,499
  • MODEL YEAR: 2021

A high-quality midtail electric cargo bike that can stand vertically to save space! Available in three colors but only one frame size. Slack seat tube angle and two telescoping seat post segments provide a range of fit options for short and tall riders alike.

The P9 is the most affordable, uses a weaker motor and smaller battery, and is the second lightest in the group.. Lighter and less expensive than the Tern GSD models, the HSD (which stands for Haul…...
