The Cyrusher Kommoda looks like the e-bike equivalent of someone who got dressed in the dark. It seems to be wearing a bit of every different type of e-bike on the market. Nothing really matches, but damn if this powerful e-bike doesn’t somehow pull it off in an awesome way!
That dual crown suspension fork looks like it came off of a motorcycle. The full-suspension design screams mountain bike. The fat tires give it that all-terrain flair, yet the tires come in a small 20″ size, which is much more common on electric moped-style e-bikes.
Cyrusher Kommoda Tech Specs • Motor: 750W continuous, 1,000W peak rear hub motor • Top speed: 45 km/h (28 mph) • Range: 40-80 km (25-50 mi) • Battery: 48V 14Ah (672 Wh) • Charge time: 5-7 hours • Max load: 150 kg (330 lb) • Weight: 34 kg (74 lb) • Frame: 6061 aluminum
Cyrusher Kommoda Tech Specs (cont'd) • Suspension: Front dual crown oil/spring fork, rear spring shock • Brakes: Zoom hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm rotors • Extras: 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, color LCD display with speedometer, wattmeter, battery gauge, PAS level indicator, odometer, tripmeter, 250 lumen headlight, tail light, included fenders and rear rack
The included fenders and lights position the bike as a functional street/commuter model. The geometry is practically a cruiser layout with an upright seating geometry.
Trying to step back and take a high-level overview, I’d say it’s pretty much a comfort cruiser e-bike. The laidback ride style and wide tires combine with tall and adjustable handlebars to create a comfortable ride.
If dual suspension wasn’t already enough to give you a nice and cushy ride, those wide tires and the comfortable saddle seal the deal. You can remain in the saddle and still hit bumps without sending a shock up your spine.
Interestingly though, the tires are only 20″ in diameter, which results in a much more nimble ride and a lower center of gravity. When you add in the step-through geometry of the frame, you really get a nice and approachable experience on a bike that is designed to fit a wide range of riders.
On the one hand, pick a direction, Cyrusher! Yet on the other hand, wow this thing is fun just as it is! We live in a “come as you are” world, and the Kommoda fully embraces that belief.
