An awesome styled electric bike with a whopping big battery that's nicely centered behind the seat. The springer forks don't do much but they really fit the style and have custom designed mount for a disk brake! The Ariel Rider W-Class is a beautiful, custom designed cruiser electric bike drawing from vintage motorcycle designs with a springer fork, chopper bars and wider top tube. Powerful 500 watt geared hub motor by Dapu paired with a 556 watt hour battery using Samsung cells for quick acceleration and decent climbing ability, adjustable speed up to 25 mph. Integrated LED lights, color matched fenders and chain guard, comfortable sprung saddle with matching leather grips on the Premium model. The motor produces more noise when starting off, the springer fork doesn't offer much travel, no rack or bottle cage mounting points, some delay on the cadence sensor.
