Electric Bicycle Details


RRP: £ 1599


The new Saxonette Beast. A cruiser styled electric power assisted bicycle blending retro design and state of the art technology. Graced with a huge sculpted top tube and oversized bottom bracket shell, the 6061 aluminium frame is tough and flex free.

Classic lines blended with the latest battery and motor control technology have created a truly exceptional riding experience.

A powerful  hydraulic front disc brake and effective multi condition rear coaster brake provide reliable and consistent braking in all weather conditions.

Dual front LED lights to illuminate roads at night, and a very visible LED rear tail light with a stationary stay on function for additional safety are powered by an independent dynamo unit reducing demands on the battery. The secondary front light is powered directly from the battery and is independently controlled giving extra light when required.

The 24 x 3 inch high volume tyres mounted on quality alloy rims help smooth out rough road surfaces and add stability. An adjustable sprung leather saddle adds further to the comfortable and smooth rolling design of the Beast.

For the ultimate in convenience and performance, a Shimano Nexus 7 speed rear hub takes care of gearing duties. This unit is very low maintenance and also allows gears to be selected when stationary (unlike a derailleur system) which is very handy in town.

No compromises have been made on the motor drive system. A very powerful 36V Lithium Iron Phosphate battery powers the 250 watt brushless planetary geared motor. This design gives the rider consistent and effective power when needed, and has no resistance when pedalling without assistance.

The centrally mounted handlebar LCD display provides speed, total and trip distances, power level, motor output and battery level. A soft blue backlight is provided for reading the display at night. Programmable for maximum assistance levels, the rider has the option of custom settings to suit their requirements.

With 9 modes of assistance, and 7 speeds available, the Beast makes light work of even the steepest gradients and headwinds.

The Beast is available in Cruiser and Step-through versions.
