A dirt bike with an engine? The new ONYX LZR

A dirt bike with an engine? The new ONYX LZR

The manufacturer ONYX recently launched its latest e-bike. It is a dirt bike that is commonly used for dirt jumps but is equipped with an electric motor.

Modern and fast at the same time

With the LZR, ONYX created a connection between the classic dirt bike and the electric bike that is so popular at the moment. Thanks to the Smooth Weld Additive Technology, the bike has a particularly smooth surface and, accordingly, looks modern and of high quality. In addition, it has a 100mm adjustable front suspension and BMX dirt jump hubs that give the bike enough sturdiness.

One bike, two different versions

The ONYX LZR is available in two different engine options. One with a 500 W Dark Matter mid-drive with an output of 615 watts and a top speed of 45 km/h, and the other with a 900 W Bafang M600 mid-drive with a whopping 1050 watts and a top speed of over 48 km/h. Both models, LZR and LZR PRO stand for real riding experience, which is why the bikes are equipped with classic pedals. In addition, a 504 Wh battery is integrated into the bikes’ frame; it offers a range of between 48 and 120 km, depending on the support mode.

Matching the launch of the new bikes, ONYX has released an action-packed introductory video :

The ONYX LZR has an MSRP of $2799, and the LZR PRO is $3399. However, there is a discount for the first 100 orders of the respective models – you get one once 700 and the other 600 US dollars cheaper.
