The Sur-Ron Firefly electric motorcycle has turned out to be very popular, so I’m adding links here to a few videos to provide an inside look at some of the details, for those readers who are curious this new product that’s experiencing a lot of buzz…

Sur-Ron Electric MX Front Shock RST vs Fast Ace vs DNM
The main difference between the Super Moto and the MX version is the smooth street tires. They “may be” other minor differences, but that is the most obvious.
We wrote about the Sur-Ron Firefly a few months ago in January (click here to see that article). The Sur-Ron can be found in the Luna Cycles web-catalog here, and…they also have an exclusive 60-tooth sprocket which lowers the top-speed and increases the rear wheel torque. Many riders feel the 60-tooth sprocket is very beneficial when riding off-road. Here is a review of the 60T sprocket by one of my favorite writers, Karl “the wild man” Gesslein.
