Lectric XP Step-Thru 2.0 Review

The Lectric XP 2.0 features numerous improvements that make it even better than the original. It may have the same frame and motor, but the addition of a suspension fork, wider handlebar, and narrower 3-inch wide tires have improved its handling and overall ride quality. This Class 2 and 3 capable bike is quick, comfortable, and comes with loads of great features at what we feel is a very reasonable price.
