The ZEN Samurai is a premium commuter, touring capable, electric bike with Bosch Gen 4 Speed motor capable of 28mph. Offers clean quiet Gates Carbon belt drive, powerful Magura hydraulic disc brakes, and Enviolo continuously variable transmission. Comes stock with a Bosch PowerTube 500 battery pack and 4 amp fast charger. Optional PowerPack 500 doubles range while keeping weight low and center. Four frame sizes, adjustable angle stem, and Ergon touch points ensure comfort. Custom suspension seat post pairs with Manitou air suspension to offer comfort at speed and over long distances. Included SKS fenders, sturdy rear rack, and optimally positioned light offer safety and utility. Weighs a bit more because it comes feature-complete. Pricing starts at $4.6k but rises sharply with optional suspension, brake, and drivetrain upgrades. Battery charge port and downtube cover could be refined.
