Our highly acclaimed Forza now comes in a Step-Thru version in size medium frame. Our V3 Forza just won the Auckland long hill ebike comparison test by an independent agency. Virtually all e-bikes in NZ (including German brands) were tested and the Forza came in top rated. You are indeed getting top performance with either of our Forza models. This has the same top specs and performance as the double diamond (Gents frame) Forza. Don't confuse the Forza with generic Chinese mountain bikes. This powerhouse bike is designed and built at our factory for forest roads, the rail trails and single-track riding, but makes a brilliant commuter. (please see independent video review on this page). This is the same Kinetic V3 hi-torque motor that won the 2015 Sun Trip 7000km Race across Europe. Our 54 year old rider beat the many Bosch (and other brands) ebikes by two whole days! You are getting this same V3 motor and LG battery chosen by six Councils in NZ and now has been chosen by the NZ Transport Agencies in both Wellington and Auckland.

Here is an account from a 65 year old Aussie rider taking a heavily loaded Forza over 5000 km on all sorts of terrain with a total of one puncture for maintenance. http://ezeebike.com/epic-ride-phillip-byme/
There are huge advantages to specifically engineered Kinetic produced motors and the Forza is not a generic e-bike in any way. The battery is available up to 28 amp hour (1010 watt hour) capacity. The Forza controller is self-diagnostic, intuitive delays built in, with throttle over-riding the cruise control function when needed to start on hills or across intersections, or when just puffed. See the independent video review on the video tab of this webpage for Forza particulars. The experts realize the incredible value this ebike represents; perhaps you should too.
