Summary Review: Lectric XP
There are plenty of different bikes, and brands in the ebike space, but not all of them have been as successful as Lectric has with their first bike, the XP. The $900 price point, mixed with a top speed of 28 mph definitely caught our eye, and the team at Electric Bike Report was super excited to try out the XP.
Throughout our testing we realized what a cool bike the XP truly is, and we believe that Lectric did a phenomenal job with their first bike. The Lectric XP exceeded our expectations and we believe this bike could be life changing for some consumers.
The Lectric XP e-bike is a budget-friendly folding bike currently priced at less than a thousand dollars. This ebike is equipped with burly 4” wide tires, a twist throttle, and an adjustable top speed of 28mph. You can get the Lectric XP in white, or glossy black which includes matching fenders, a rear rack and padded saddle. This is Lectrics standard version of the XP, it’s also available the Lectric XP Step-Thru version for the same price.
The XP also has integrated front and rear lights for safety and visibility, and a handlebar mounted LCD display that shows battery level, current speed, pedal assist level, and trip distance. On top of that, the 500W hub motor and LG battery are extremely strong and offer a solid range of 25-45 miles. The XP also folds in half, and the handlebars fold down so you can throw it in a car trunk or on a bus. Our team was thoroughly impressed with the XP, the features you get for the price you pay is hard to beat.
Our bottom line Lectric XP review: Overall, we feel that Lectric has created a stellar ebike for those who can’t normally afford one, the versatility and functionality of this bike makes it fun to ride, and convenient to store away. Those running low on space, those looking for an efficient form of transportation, and those looking for a bike to explore, and adventure on are going to love the XP.
