Why did you create two Graffiti models?
With the first Graffiti, we continuously got asked, “why no rear suspension?” We took that to heart, and it got us thinking… what if we split the Graffiti into TWO models?
We could create a bad-ass bike for urban cruisers looking for a more traditional (yet far from traditional) eBike, with a lower price point.
And for the performance junkies, we could create a full suspension Graffiti, and make it faster and more powerful… give them a little something eXtra if you will.
So that’s what we did.
How is the 2023 Graffiti different from the 2022 version?
With the 2023 Graffiti our focus was reliability, fun and style, at a very competitive price point. With that in mind, we made the following updates:
- Changed to a geared hub motor for more low end torque
- Removed regen braking because of the motor change
- Upgraded battery cells from 18650 to 21700 cells, and increased each battery size to 20ah
- Changed to a full twist throttle
- Reduced the overall weight of the bike by 5 lbs
What are the key differences between 2023 Graffiti and the Graffiti X?
- Hardtail (Graffiti) vs. full suspension (Graffiti X)
- 52V (Graffiti) vs. 60V (Graffiti X)
- Road tires (Graffiti) vs. off-road tires (Graffiti X)
- Graffiti X is higher in power, acceleration, and top speed
- Graffiti X comes with a full light package with turn signals on
Which Graffiti is right for me?
This will depend on your use case.
If you’re an urban cruiser planning to mainly ride in the bike lanes, and stick to the legal eBike speed limit (20 mph), and you’re looking for a lower price point, the Graffiti is probably the one for you.
If you are an adrenaline junkie, you live for speed and power, and you want to ride on road and off road, The Graffiti X was made for you!
When will I get the bike?
We are targeting July to begin shipping the new 2023 Graffiti.
What is the top speed?
Top speed is a function of voltage and the parameters of your motor. Watts are overall power, but they do not dictate top speed. The 2023 Graffiti has been designed to deliver more low end torque, and the top speed of the bike, while still fast, is 33+ mph.
How far can I go?
eBikes are much more dependent on the conditions to produce a range estimate than cars are, so the answer depends on how you plan to ride, and the weight of the rider(s) and cargo. The new Graffiti has 2080 watt hours of capacity with the dual battery option, and we changed the cells from 18650 to 21700 cells which have shown better range performance in ebikes.
Our general estimate, considering a 175 pound rider, at an average speed of 15-20 mph with pedal assist, will get you about 70-80 miles with the dual batteries.
How does it handle hills?
We increased the low end torque of the Graffiti to increase the hill climbing capability. With 2300 peak watts in a geared hub you’re not going to find a lot of hills that the Graffiti can’t handle.
How long does the battery take to charge?
The charger provided is a single battery 3 amp charger, and each battery takes 5-6 hours to charge from empty.
How long does the battery last? What if I need to replace it?
Batteries in electric bikes are all rated between 800-1000 cycles. A “cycle” is a full drain and full charge. So if you go for a ride and use 30% of the battery and then charge it again it counts as 0.3 cycles. If someone rides every 2-3 days and uses 50% of their battery, then you can expect a battery to last 8-10 years. Its lifecycle will be shorter if you use it more.
Is the battery removable?
Yes, both batteries on the Graffiti are easily removable and can be taken inside for safe keeping / storage. They come with a key to lock them to the bike while you ride and when unlocked, they simply slide forward off their baseplate so that they can be removed.
What are the wheel and tire sizes? Are the tires puncture resistant?
The Graffiti has 20” bicycle wheels. The tires are 20” x 4.0”, 15-20 PSI, dual terrain CST Big Boat tires, and they have a built-in puncture resistant layer.
What type of throttle does it have?
We had a lot of feedback from people on the throttle choice. Thumb throttle vs. twist throttle is an ongoing debate in the ebike community. In the end we have moved our bikes over to full twist throttles. It also has a throttle cancelation button, which allows you to disable the throttle and use pedal assist alone.
What kind of motor does it have?
The Graffiti has a Bafang 1000 watt geared hub which is a popular motor in the ebike space. The longevity of these motors has been well tested and they are very reliable.
What sizes does the bike come in? What’s the seat height?
Similar to a motorcycle, this eBike comes in just one size and it fits most from 5’4 to 6’4.
The height of the seat is at 31”, which is similar to the height of most motorcycles. We have had riders on the Graffiti from 5’2 to 6”6, but the perfect height range is between 5’4 to 6’4.
How much does the Graffiti weigh?
Weight without the batteries installed is 26kg / 57lbs. Each battery weighs 4.2 kg / 9.3lbs.
What is the rider weight capacity?
The capacity is 325 pounds, which includes the weight of the bike. So approx 250 pounds for the rider without compromising performance. That said, the rider could go up to 300-325 pounds, the bike won't climb hills as easily, will get less range, and will see a hit to top speed. Beyond 325 pounds, the brakes and/or motor may begin overheating, and it becomes unsafe.
Can I ride in the rain? Is it waterproof?
The Graffiti is rated IP54, which is splash proof, so for the most part, the Graffiti can withstand rain without damage to its electric components. However, be aware this is not a guarantee against water damage. Long exposure or parking for long periods in the rain, exposure to freezing / thawing cycles, and the like, can cause damage. That said, the bike has been planned for use in rainy conditions, and tested in the wet weather of Canada’s west coast where it was born.
Can I ride it in the snow?
The fat tires that come with the Graffiti are a city tread, but tires can be purchased that would be more appropriate for snowy conditions. We recommend the Kenda or the CST BFT winter tires.
Like all electric vehicles, range is impacted by colder weather and can cut range by up to 40% in very cold weather. Batteries need to be warmed inside to above 0 C / 32 F before charging to avoid damaging the batteries. If you follow these precautions then you will be able to enjoy winter riding on your eBike.
Where can I test ride / try the Graffiti?
If you happen to live in Vancouver, Squamish or Whistler, BC we would be happy to arrange a test ride for you from our facility in Squamish, BC. We are available by appointment at most times.
We may also have some events or pop-ups where you’ll be able to demo. Please sign up to our VIP List to stay informed.
If you are anywhere else, unfortunately, we cannot offer test rides at this time.
In the near future, we will be partnering with a network of dealers, where you’ll be able to test ride the bikes.
What is the cost of shipping?
Shipping is free in the Canadian Provinces and the Lower 48 States. Additional shipping charges apply for Alaska and Hawaii - please contact us for more details.
Do I need a drivers license to ride?
No, the Lyric Graffiti can be operated as a Class 2 eBike with a 20mph / 32kmh top-speed. For these types of vehicles a license is not required in Canada or the United States.
Please check your Federal, State, and Municipal eBike laws, as these can vary widely. Typically a top-speed will be prescribed for your area, and we recommend following your local laws.
The bike can be unlocked in the settings to reach top speed. These settings on the Lyric Graffiti should be used on private land and for off-road use only.
Do you ship outside of North America
When we ship outside of North America, there would be an additional shipping charge.
Also, it’s important to note that we cannot predict how customs will respond to the shipment… so any purchases / shipping outside of North America, would be at the buyers' discretion, understanding the risk that your country’s customs could reject / seize the shipment.
In addition, we can currently only service the warranty in North America. So this would be at your own risk as well.
We would require you to sign off on both of the above.
If you’re willing to accept the risk, we can provide a shipping estimate for you.
If you'd like to proceed with a shipping quote, please send me your full address.
