Juiced unveils the new Scorpion X2 electric bike and drops prices
San Diego-based e-bike company Juiced is all set to launch its latest electric bike, the Juiced Scorpion X2. This will mark the triumphant return of the popular electric bike.
Earlier this year, we reported on trademark legal battles related to Juiced’s HyperScorpion e-bike line of e-bikes that caused the company to discontinue these models.
And Joycede confirmed at the time that we did not see the last of the Scorpions, but rather they will return better than ever and with a new name.
Now, consonant one and number one later, say hello to the Juiced Scorpion X2!
Of course, there is more to the new models than just the name.
The scooter-style electric bikes come with a frame similar to the original, but now feature an upgraded 1,000-watt motor. That’s 25% more nominal power than the original Juiced Scorpion X when it was unveiled. The 52V, 15Ah battery pack is said to provide up to 55 miles (88 km) of range, though of course that’s with the passenger pedaling as well.
Just like the original, a rack and fender package will be included with the Juiced Scorpion X2 as standard equipment, although now it looks like there’s a new red color offered in addition to the original blue and black options.
All-terrain knobby tires will also be offered, though the move seems a bit odd given most riders use the Juiced Scorpion for urban commuting. This is exactly what I used while reviewing the template.
Pre-orders for the new Scorpion X2 will open next week on September 6, though the price has yet to be announced.
We’re still waiting for some of the other specs to be announced, though it’s very likely that several performance numbers like 28 mph (45 km/h) will return in the Scorpion X2 as well.
The announcement comes as Juiced is currently running some amazing discounted sales on some of its most popular e-bike models.
One of my favorites is the RipRacer, which is a smaller e-bike that packs great power into a maneuverable package. This Class 3 e-bike can reach speeds of up to 28 mph (45 km/h) and has been slashed to just $999 from its MSRP of $1,499.
If you’re looking for something with more power and features, you can actually still get one of Juiced’s last few remaining HyperScorpions, which was normally priced at $2,499, but has now been reduced to just $1,899. Given that this model has been phased out (but of course will still be company-supported), this could be a good opportunity to own a rare e-bike. Who knows, maybe one day it will become a collector’s item!
