As owner of a gen 2 and gen 4 speed motor, what you get is more torque, better acceleration, less weight, better protection against water incursion, slightly better range and far less resistance when the motor cuts out or when you pedal without it. Plus with the added 30% more torque the performance puts an even bigger grin on your face. It is up to you to decide if these things are work the extra $$$. Gen 2 motors are super durable and quieter.I am seriously considering a full suspension Bulls. For my first foray into a quality bike, should I get the Iconic w Gen 4 or can I save grand and get the Gen 2? What do I get for the extra $1000?
As much as I would love to ride a R and M, I think the Bulls would be a nice upgrade from my other 2 ebikes. (XP and Sport)
Also, is more maintenance required with the Bulls compared to my other 2 ebikes?
