WHAT IS THE TOP SPEED OF A CROWNCRUSER?

It is a street-legal Electrically PoweredAssisted Cycle (EPAC), with several riding modes. You can also buy the Off-Road Experience (ORE) that includes a throttle for private land use only.

HOW CAN I OPTIMISE THE PERFORMANCE OF MY CROWNCRUISER USING RIDE MODES?

CAN I PRESSURE WASH MY CROWNCRUISER?
We would strongly advise against pressure washing your CrownCruiser. A sponge, water and some bike-appropriate cleaning soap will be enough to keep your CrownCruiser looking fresh.
HOW IS THE CROWNCRUISER POWERED?
By a Bafung hub motor.
WHY USE A HUB MOTOR?
A hub motor means that the power is delivered directly to the rear wheel and provides strong propulsion – enough to transport loads. This provides great torque and immediate power delivery, while also massively simplifies servicing.
WHAT FACTORS CAN AFFECT THE RANGE OF MY CROWNCRUISER?
Wheel pressure, temperature, incline and the weight of the rider all factor into the range that your CrownCruiser will be capable of delivering.

HOW DO I INSERT THE BATTERY INTO THE CROWNCRUISER?
You simply slot it in. Unlike other manufacturers, we’ve designed the CrownCruiser battery to be extremely simple to use – you don’t need to connect a cable once the battery is inserted, you just need to drop it in and press the power button for 5 seconds – and the battery will automatically connect.
HOW DO I CHARGE THE CROWNCRUISER BATTERY?
There are two ways to charge – with the dock, or without. If you’d like to use the dock, you can clip the charging terminal into the dock, drop the battery in, and wait for charging to complete. If you want to use the charger without the dock, you simply attach the charging terminal to the battery. The terminal is angled so that you can store the battery upright and drop the battery ‘on’ to the charging terminal, even without a dock fitted.
HOW CAN I KEEP THE CROWNCRUISER BATTERY OPTIMISED?
Try and keep your battery as full as possible. Deep-cycling (frequently and consistently taking the battery from 100% to 0%) affects the life of the battery – better to top it up when you can. If you’re not going to be using your battery for a while, we suggest storing it indoors.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE THE CROWNCRUISER BATTERY?
In normal conditions, the CrownCruiser battery charges from 0-100% in under 4 hours. To go from 50-100% is 2 hours, and 20-80% is just over 2 hours.

BATTERY PERCENTAGE AND CHARGING STATUS UPDATE
If you unplug the charger while your CrownCruiser is turned off, then the app might advertise the status as "charging". As soon as you turn your bike on then the status will be corrected. The percentage of the battery and the charging status may be different when the Bluetooth is connected and when it is not connected as without bluetooth connection the information is sent from the bike to your app via GSM, which might not update instantly but in some minutes, whereas Bluetooth updates information instantly.
