So I picked up my Hydra today from Pushkar at his shop in Massachusetts. Rode a bit around my neighborhood. Decided to give a first impressions. Keep in mind that this is my first ebike. Only options I elected was med frame, matte black color, 2300W, 4.8 fat tires, and unrestricted throttle.
First thing I noticed was the bike is big. I am 5'6" but was still able to put both feet on the ground when straddling the bike. Suspension feels good. Ride is comfortable. The torque is insane. Even on eco mode 1 the front tire lifts off the ground a bit. I rode it up a grass incline on eco 1 and it has no issues. I tried it on Sport 5 and the acceleration was crazy. I am not going to be doing a top speed run yet until I get use to the bike more.
