Getting a bang for your buck
Eco Drive Junior is the most affordable 48V Ebike in the market, retailing at $1150 alongside with other 48V models such as the ORCA Ebike, which is going for $1599, the ROGI MAX at $1788, and the ULLMAX MTB24 at $1399. Best to get it soon – the Eco Drive Junior has only approximately 300 limited sets in Singapore!
Eco Drive Junior uses a detachable 48V 11.5Ah LI-ION Battery. It is equipped which 14” Magnesium Sports Rims and dual disc brakes with 4-bulb front LED white lights, flaunting red rear lights as well as braking lights & built-in horn. The exact measurement of the Eco Drive Junior Measures at approximately 120cm (Length) x 103.50cm (Height) x 52cm (Width). When folded, the length of the Junior measures approximately 120cm (Length) x 70 (Height) x 55 (Width).
The junior is said to be able to travel approximately up to 70-80km however during my hands-on review on my new video segment called “Cheap VS Expensive”, I managed to clock 32.9 km on the first battery bar. This means that the junior has the potential to even beat ORCA Ebike in terms of range which was I was not expecting initially because if of it’s smaller battery capacity.
Basic essential features such as front lights, rear lights, braking lights as well as built-in horn are equipped on the Eco Drive Junior, and to be frank there wouldn’t be much to touch on as it is considered an entry-level 48V ebike. Aside from that, it is also the only 48V ebike that comes along with a removeable cushioned seat when you purchase the ebike.
The only downside would be that it’s speed maintains at a consistent speed of 21.9 km/h with a cut-off speed of 23 km/h, which in my opinion could be better as the maximum speed allowed for ebikes is 25 km/h.
Out of 5 stars, I would give the Junior a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, given it’s value for money and distance that it could travel, again potentially beating the 48V ORCA ebike. I would think that this ebike is very much suitable for food delivery jobs! I might score it a couple of points higher if the speed were to be able to reach closer to 25 km/h.
