  • Brake Charge System: Depressing the rear brake lever transforms the motor into a generator that is capable of charging the battery. This creates energy whenever the brakes are applied while riding.
  • Auto Mode: In auto mode, the bike automatically adjusts to the environment's riding conditions, whether it be a flat surface, uphill or downhill. Auto Mode allows you to increase your riding distance up to 1.8 times longer.
  • Power-Up Mode: Ride More Comfortably with Powerful Assistance The built-in Power-up mode increases the output ratio of the power assistance motor, allowing you to comfortably ride uphill with very little energy expended pedaling.
  • Two-Wheel Drive: A Smooth Start The unique SANYO drive configuration makes it easy to ride in confidence. The front wheel is motor-driven and the rear wheel depends on pedaling force, which prevents wobbling starts and grips the road.

I see it as a great commuter bike as you won't be too sweaty at work.

If you are looking for an e-bike, you would like to buy the one with best quality lithium-ion battery which SANYO is well known for.

I want to have a cardio workout and power up hills and get that rush of accomplishment, but these hills are steep!

Google this bike (KW= Sanyo Electric Bike) for some very accurate and informative reviews of the product.

An electric engine generates maximum torque at 1RPM. As such, Electric-powered vehicles are subject to sudden starts in direct-drive configurations. This is not that big a deal in large 4-wheeled vehicles like Golf Carts or Prius's. On Bike and Motorcycles though, it can be pretty unpleasant...but not this bike.

Because it is electrically assisted, not electric-only powered, it is a pleasure to ride. I got it for my wife who suffers degenerative rheumatoid arthritis but loves bikes and exercises as the only way to sustainably improve the her life in light of the pathology.

Because it is so effortless for her to ride in the 10--15mph range, I think I am the main exercise beneficiary, huffing and puffing close-behind on my classically Flintstones-era (pre-electric) bike.

Most of the use so far has been my teenaged sons (amateur motocross racers who can wreck ANYTHING with wheels in minutes) and the Sanyo has held up flawlessly to endless sessions of max-speed runs.

Initial impression is that this seems to be a properly executed approach to regenerative-braking, electric power. Nobody's ever gotten the thing below 3 of 5 power-level lights simply because we run out of time for riding long before the battery runs out of juice.

All in all, of the 20-or-so powered 2-wheelers in our crazy household, this thing is by far the most-demanded ride of the family. Now, if they only build one without accomodating a skirt with the step-through design, I'd likely own one for every one in the family.

Do the research, basically this is a uniformly beloved bicycle, one that doesn't whack my wife's rheumatoid (low impact) so it's really quite a discovery.

Enjoy! --DC

I think this is absolutely the best e-bike available in the market. It's like riding a regular bike and the loop charging technology which charges the battery while riding is state-of-the-art. If you are looking for an e-bike, you would like to buy the one with best quality lithium-ion battery which SANYO is well known for. Plus, it's fun, cool and affordable.

You might want to try a test ride at Best Buy.

I've owned my Eneloop for about 6 months now. It's incredibly fun and makes it so easy to bicycle anywhere. I've taken it up for ~15 mile rides without discharging the battery and has become my primary form of transportation and quickly replaced my car for those "little trips" around town to run errands (hint: buy saddle bags that accommodate grocery bags). The rack is extremely sturdy and the frame appears to be as well -- I've hauled around my ~65 lb dog with a bicycle trailer. Note: you aren't going to win any racing trips with this thing, but that's not what it's for. It's a useful urban transport.

By the way, if you are concerned about longevity if you have a longer commute, you can order another battery from Sanyo, it's about 400 bucks.

The 26 X 1/3/8 tires that come on the bike are an oddball size (32-590), hard to find with limited selection available.

They have a Max pressure rating of 55lbs, and aren't suitable for riders over 200Lbs.

To bad they couldn't have put conventional 26" mountain bike wheels and tires on the bike to start with.

Re-building the wheels will be an expensive proposition.

A big downside to an otherwise clever bike design.

The motor assist is wonderful.

So this bike is no longer made and imported into the US market since Sanyo was bought by Panasonic. You will not be able to find anyone who knows how to work on this bike. You will not be able to get a new battery (or at least it will not be easy). Try finding any useful information on the internet about this bike (owners manual, parts list, service manual, dealer list, etc.) an you will see what a PITA it will be if you ever have trouble. It's a shame too as its a pretty good bike.

Also, if anyone ever comes across any manuals for the Eneloop bikes please post a comment here with where to find them as I'm sure there are lots of owners who would love to have this information.

I just took this bike up and down hills of San Francisco today. I am pleased with the performance and power, but keep in mind I am not looking for a ride that will just blindly power me up these here hills (have a motorcycle for those runs). I wanted a bike that would help improve torque, but not replace physical work (as with heavier models). Not too heavy, but sturdy.

I am dealing with knee rehabilitation and my regular bike causes too much strain. So I was looking for a pedal-assist set of wheels that could help me navigate the SF terrain without too much swelling pain after a ride. I want to have a cardio workout and power up hills and get that rush of accomplishment, but these hills are steep!

So far, so good.

The dirty secret in SF is that many spend thousands on regular bikes, take them out once or twice for a steep hill climb, then never do it again. I want to do these hills whenever I want.. without having to climb my inner Mt. Improbable to drive up the willpower to take on The Task.

I feel that if my experience with the Enerloop goes well ... and the hardware/electronics have decent durability.. I will be doing far more biking around SF than many others who do not have pedal-assist. And the exercise is helping rehab my ligaments (damaged from running and a motorcycle accident) so that I can gradually work in more regular bike rides too.

The ride is not smooth though, as it does not have shocks as with my Gary Fisher mountain hybrid. So it is a bit bumpier on rough pavement and I'm not comfortable going at high speeds. I doubt I would take this off road for big trail rides. But for leisure excursions or taking my mobile office round the Bay, absolutely a good choice.

I will try and update this review in a few months after more road experience.

Peace out.
