Nexzu Rompus + Ownership Review: Electrifying the Cycling Experience
Nexzu offered us to test its Rompus + electric bike a few weeks ago. Here’s how the trip went!
Many years ago, in the early days of my freshman year of college, this was the last time I rode a bike. Motorcycles and cars have taken over since then and a bike is something I’ve never really missed, in part because of my regular training schedule. The coronavirus, however, changed that among many other things over the past year and a half, as going to the gym was no longer a possibility and a bike suddenly had a lot to offer in terms of a fitness tool.
Although the thought persisted in my mind, I was not sure I had a bicycle because a car seemed the best option in terms of security against the virus. However, as things improved after the second wave, the fitness spark rekindled again when Nexzu offered to test their Rompus + electric bike. Suddenly, it seemed like a great idea to me because I could use the electric bike not only as a fitness tool, but also for daily trips over short distances, thus saving on gasoline, which is expensive as it is. hell now. A few days later, the Nexzu technicians arrived at my house to assemble the electric bike and it took barely an hour, which kicked off my trip with a cycle or rather an electric bike.
Let’s get rid of the basic specs first. The Nexzu Rompus + is powered by a 250W hub motor, which draws its power from a 5.2Ah battery. power with electric energy.
After riding this machine for a few months, I can say with certainty that it is very difficult for me to get back to a regular bike now. The Rompus + performs brilliantly as an electric vehicle and after driving it in various conditions we achieved around 18km of range consistently in pure electric mode. With pedals I was able to cover a little over 18 miles which means it can be used for multiple purposes very well.
In terms of handling, the Rompus + rides like any regular bike without gears but the thing that might be new to many is the fact that once you turn on the electricity the moment you start pedaling (a second of delay in fact), the engine starts making some efforts. This makes it very easy to cycle longer distances than usual. What you need to be careful of is that when riding in heavy traffic the sudden surge of power can make things a bit tricky, but once you get used to it there shouldn’t be of problem.
The controls can be operated using a small, simple panel on the left side of the handlebars. The buttons include the power modes to use, light, horn, and an on / off button. On the right side you have the throttle just like you get on a scooter or a motorcycle. This can be used to control the speed when driving in pure electric mode. High power mode is my favorite because it provides enough power and speed (top speed of 23 km / h tested on GPS) to move easily without the rider becoming a slow obstacle in tight spots.
The disc brakes on both wheels also do a good job of stopping the Rompus + quickly and the semi-knotty tires provide good grip on surfaces with varying levels of traction. That said, there is one thing I wish I could have done better and that is the seat. While the seat has decent padding, it’s a bit too narrow for my liking and as a result longer journeys can get a bit of a concern at times.
In terms of design, Nexzu did a good job with the Rompus + and the battery and motor integration was pretty neat. As a result, the machine blends in with traffic just like any other beautiful bike. The initial shocks do a good job of dipping into most ripples, but I think the build quality here could have been a bit better. Beyond that, the look and feel of the Rompus + is impressive.
The Nexzu Rompus + is one of the top choices right now for those looking for an electric bike. It offers a clean and impressive design and is not too heavy despite the weight of the battery and motor. With good autonomy and a charging time of about six hours from a domestic socket, the Rompus + offers good practicality and uses. Priced at Rs 32,925, the Rompus + is a good value proposition with only a few flaws that we have mentioned but luckily none of them are a dealbreaker. In a nutshell, if you are skeptical of how EVs can be to live with, then investing in something like the Rompus + is a smart option as it will give you some of the key information related to vehicle ownership. electric without burning a hole in your pocket.
The e-cycle is with us and will continue to be for some time to come, so pay attention to our more detailed coverage on how the battery behaves after longer use and whether the product can maintain its battery quality. premium construction over a longer test of time.
