VOLT 750 Limited Review?

#1
I just recently purchased the colt 750 limited w/2017 upgrades and was wondering anyone has experience with this bikes and their thoughts. I haven't found much only concerning it. I know it closely relates to the original 750.

Anything helps :)

You might be able to glean some info from the forum thread New Voltbike Yukon 750 Spotted. Would like to hear your feedback on the bike. It's my pick for a fat tire bike, but I'm also looking at the E-Glide ST now for something more stealthy on my daily commutes.

I received my Yukon 750 Limited last week. It has all of the upgrades that owners have been asking for. First impressions are WOW this thing is great!
Well I got a chance to ride along with my buddy this weekend. We went twice around a 7km long twisty single track trail through the bush at a local provincial park. I've got to say this bike is NOT designed for this type of riding! There is a bit of lag to get going and a LOT of lag before the motor cuts out after I stop pedaling. I needed to keep cutting the power constantly via the brakes to avoid hitting the trees or careening off the path. The motor is not geared low enough to maintain a slow-controllable pace on a super tight trail. My buddy is a more experienced rider and has a mid-drive and seemed to make out better. That said, I love the bike on the street and it will be just fine on more open trails. I did not buy it with the intention of doing tight trails or winter riding so I am looking forward to better weather so I can really get some use out of it.

How has the Yukon been holding up? Would love to hear an update.

Okay, sorry for the late response. Every thing I have said above is true. Recently I went on a 30km trip through the city with my Buddy who has the KHS fat bike that he put a Bafang mid drive on. He can maintain a much lower speed than me in level 1 assist. He was doing 12-15 kmh at times and I had to keep cutting the power to slow down. I also pedaled a while with no assist. If I keep rotating the pedals as slow as possible, the bike wants to do 18 kmh minimum. When I use the throttle only, it is incremental, and will maintain a very low speed. The power cuts off instantly when the throttle is backed off also. I really have not had much opportunity to ride it yet, but have no complaints other than the cut off lag and a seeming lack of correlation between cadence and motor input.

Thanks for the update. How does it do on paved hills? I've got a 1-mile incline with an average 5% grade (9% for about 2/10 of a mile) that other Yukon riders have said won't be a problem.
