      You have the most (and perhaps the only) in-depth review of this bike thus far,

      Cheers,
      David
      And perhaps the only review so far.!!!!

        I purchased one based off of this review. It was delivered Sunday, 7/18. I'm working on compiling some thoughts and opinions but you're right, this thing is awesome.

          I'm glad you're enjoying it too. I went on another ride last week and I'm still loving it so far.

        Just yesterday I called Natti cycle in New Jersey. The Banshee storm is in stock. Made in China. (Just like my 2020 Surron Light bee,X)
        I told them I live in Western Pa. (Pittsburgh) I was supposed to call them today to see if they will deliver it to my house fully assembled. (about 300 miles)
        I was just in the process of reading the reviews & specs again when I seen Fglo 11 posting here.

          Mine came fully assembled and mostly plastic wrapped, shipped private via USHIP. 500 miles, no issue. Shipped after a week, but Greg communicated with me that that was longer than it should've been, as they were waiting on a shipment of chargers. Arrived 2 days later.

            Have you taken it for a ride yet,??
            Clutch. When you put it in any gear will it stall if you don`t apply throttle.?
            Going up a big hill climb say in 2nd gear. Will it stall out if you don`t downshift to 1st gear.?

              I've gotten a few good rides in around our property (≈8 acres) I haven't don't any torture test style runs yet, just trail riding and some mud. But it's a blast. I know it's a cliché, but I giggled the first time I got on a straight and got to give it some real throttle. I'm not sure if it's really capable of stalling out. Multiple times I've done hard starts from second because I forget to downshift. Being electric, there are times I would've definitely stalled an ICE bike that this thing saved me. Plenty of power left at the bottom end in second.

                Honestly I leave this thing in 2nd almost all the time. I tend to drop to first if I'm going down a steep hill and want more regen braking. Taking off in first is borderline dangerous unless the battery is below 50%.

                  I just picked one of these up a week ago and haven't really taken it for a ride yet. You mentioned an eco mode - do you just mean that red switch on the right handlebar, or is there another button somewhere?
                  also, have you found what brake and clutch levers would work as replacements? Thanks, looking forward to riding it this weekend hopefully.
