500w+ Mid Drive Fatty Hard Tail w/Throttle

#1
Wondering if there exists a really cool looking fat bike with a big motor for climbing big hills and also a throttle and a 28mph+ top speed so I can zip around at breakneck speeds.

Hoping to spend less than $3000. I'd like a low profile battery, possibly part of the frame. Not sure what enforcement exists prohibiting ebikes on trails, but I want to attract as little attention as possible.

I'd like to fly down fire roads. Hoping to spend less than $3000. I'd like a low profile battery, possibly part of the frame. Not sure what enforcement exists prohibiting ebikes on trails, but I want to attract as little attention as possible.

You may have to wrench a little bit but it is powerful to zip around at break neck speed :)

If you find your dream eMoto and ride like that on public lands, your sub-$3k investment may well be confiscated by Rangers or Environmental Police.
This is exactly the attitude that will get ALL ebikes banned from natural surface trails.

Hi Limbo. This will be for Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii which is private land and famous for mountain biking. They do segregate motorcycle from bicycle trails. I won't be flying 50' in the air so hope to stick with the bike trails

Hey Duke, I reacted to the following lines from your post, which I failed to associate with private land use:

"...so I can zip around at breakneck speeds... I'd like to fly down fire roads...
Not sure what enforcement exists prohibiting ebikes on trails, but I want to attract as little attention as possible."
(emphasis mine)

Glad to hear that you don't plan to ride like that on public land. Whatever ebike you get, have phun... just don't break your neck!

PS: Looks like they're renting low-power, true pedelec Haibikes for guided tours at the "private reserve": https://www.kualoa.com/ebike-guided-adventure-tour-of-jurassic-valley/
