Oh, good. With the winter coming I wouldn't want a bike until January anyway. Thanks for the help, I was just having a bit of fun with you, I have no desire to own a Amego.
Ahh a wise guy here! Good call. This is exactly why it always pays to do your research. Love to see the challenge every now and then. Keeps those guys in check and on their toes. Have fun with your Amego...I mean your Magnum.:p

Hi Mike- Great website and signage. Any word on the Magnum Future (Navigator or Voyager or Payload) with the integrated batteries and the Dapu mid-drives. Will they become available anytime soon in the US or Canada?? The rep at Interbike indicated April 2018. Looks like some nice features with a throttle on a mid-drive. Sweet!

Having watched the September 2018 interbike video on YouTube I felt compelled to check in with Magnum about the 2019 upgrades they spoke of for the cruiser. Particularly the 750 watt motor they referred to since I was on the verge of buying one.

Well their response was kind of a lot of abada abada abada.... we're not sure what changes are going to be implemented so forth and so on. And I noticed that the previous year interbike video showed a lot of things that never came to be in the 2018 lineup.
I'm totally happy with my cruiser at 500 watts but I think a lot of what is put together for the show is in fact there to create Buzz but not necessarily to go into production.

Thanks for the heads up! I kinda had that impression after not seeing anything introduced after the show considering they thought the new models would be released by April of 2018. Creating that kind of buzz is sometimes not very good for business IMO.

Its completely fine i enjoy being questioned about our bikes. We love our bikes and are very passionate about the brand (we do have some new models in the works) but we also pride ourselves on our ability to fix our bikes no matter where in canada you may be. And b.c is a great place to ride. I actually lived in alberta for a number of years the biking in the rockies is amazing.
Hi Mike- Just curious if you agree with Chris Hammond's comment in the thread below regarding class 3 top speed on the Metro?

Magnum Metro top speed

I've never tried out a Magnum Metro but in my experience what Chris says is generally true. Motors are engineered/wound for a certain torque/rpm profile but you can use that to your advantage. For example I have no need or desire to go fast but I want a torque monster for climbing the steep hills were I reside. I don't want to get into band bashing but I was recently reading a thread discussing this subject and found many class 3 bikes come no where near the limit yet others once the top speed is changed on the display easily exceed the limit. I would prefer to buy a bike that can't make 28 mph on the hope it's been set up and geared more for torque than speed. I hope I've explained myself.

Well I think a lot of that is put out there to gauge interest. You don't want to start coming out with a lot of expensive changes if the dealer network doesn't jump up for it. Total Vapor ware I think is something different. and I can only comment on my local dealer here in Denver but they are really great. If Magnum is careful about their dealers and I'm sure they are you will be nothing but happy :)

Hey Mike,

I bought a Magnum Cruiser from your Ottawa Canada distributor. After delivery, I noticed the www.magnumbikes.co.il stencil. That's ok, but the motor is to European specifications @ 250 Watts, not the Canadian and American spec of 500 watts for the Cruiser. I checked against the Das-Kit web site; it is indeed a smaller motor, not just electronically detuned 500 watt.

The local bike tech managed to change the computer to allow for Canadian speed specs. That can't be good for the motor. The motor is now pretty loud and angry @ 30 kmh and above.

Two e-mails to Utah and 2 to my local distributor has resulted in no response. I can provide pictures.

What do you think?
