Bottom line

A collaboration between Roland Sands Design and Super73, the RX Malibu all-road e-moped is an updated version of the Super73-RX. The RX Malibu features two main upgrades. The suspension includes an unbranded, moto-style inverted fork with rebound damping and a Fox Float 3 EVOL shock. The other main upgrade is to braking, with 4-piston Magura hydraulic disc brakes providing performance that’s lauded by all reviewers. The battery has been moved to lower the center of gravity. The aggressive GRZLY tires are grippy, but more suited to dirt roads. This is a visually striking and smooth-riding option that is priced higher than much of the competition.

The Best Super73 Ever

They took all the things that they needed to improve on the RX and they put it on this RSD. Better brakes, better suspension. I think it’s worth the money. I wish the seat was more comfortable.

RSD Super73 RX Big Upgrades Out of the Box

The bike rides amazing. It comes with the best setup on the suspension. The stopping power is crazy. I don’t like the seat ‘cause it’s kinda rubbery. The price is a little bit too high, in my opinion.

Super73-RX Malibu

I’ve had it for 250 miles. This thing is bad-ass. I realistically have no complaints about this bike. I could only ask for just a little bit more torque. It tops out at about 32.3 mph. This thing is lit.
