With 50% more power, the Talaria Sting R MX 4 is a serious competitor
Right off the bat, the Luna Cycle Talaria Sting R MX 4 produces a good 7.39 horsepower. That’s about 50 percent more power than the highly acclaimed Sur-Ron X, the current big bad on the off-road, and its 4.8 horses.
On top of that, the new Talaria comes with 230mm brake rotors and four levels of regenerative braking, an updated IPM motor with magnetic encoder, and an updated 2.7 kWh battery. By the looks of it, there’s a new King in town.
The Luna Cycle Talaria Sting R MX4 uses a gearbox as opposed to a Sur-Ron’s belt-reduction transmission. In a belt-reduction transmission, it eliminates the inconvenience of replacing worn or damaged belts but calls for an oil change every 3,000 miles.
The Talaria Sting R MX4’s unlockable max speed of 52 mph is a significant improvement over the max speed of the Sur-Ron X’s 46 mph. The new Talaria’s improved performance and battery capacity come with a fairly appealing price tag.
It costs only $150 more than the Sur-Ron X at $4,500. With half the more power and 18 percent more battery life, there’s no question which model holds the crown.
As the Luna Cycle Talaria Sting R MX 4‘s performance and speed far surpass the legal limits for electric bikes, it’s important to note that Luna Cycles only sells it as an off-road vehicle. However, in order to make them street legal in numerous states, the bikes are shipped with lesser speeds and power outputs. Luna underlines the need to research laws according to the rider’s location.
