I’m sure you know about HIMO and its electric bikes. If not, I recommend you to read about this popular Chinese brand from our previous articles such as HIMO C20, HIMO C26 or HIMO C16. Today, HIMO introduced its next electric bike called HIMO Z20.
Probably, HIMO Z20 is an updated version of HIMO C20, because the bikes are very similar to each other. However, I will not compare them in this article. If you are really interested, I will compare HIMO Z20 and HIMO C20 in the next article.
So, let’s start with design of HIMO Z20, and then talk about the features, specifications, price and where to buy the new electric bike.
Where To Buy?
Compact Electric Bike
First, HIMO Z20 is a compact bike. Its dimensions are 1470 x 640 x 1095 mm. The weight is 21.6 kg.
On the image below you can see an adult man on the bike. I think he is not very comfortable.
On the other hand, the compact size is good, because you can fold your bike in half and store it in a closet or carry it in the trunk of a car. The size of HIMO Z20 when folded is only 860 x 740 mm.
The new HIMO electric bike 2020 is waterproof by IPX7 standard. Despite the fact that it is an electric bike, you can ride it in the rain.
By the way, the manufacturer boasts good brakes and high-quality tires on the new HIMO Z20 bike. Braking distance on dry road is 4 meters, and on wet road – up to 6 meters.
In front of the bike there is a large LED light, as well as parking lights on the back.
There are gear shifters, brakes, bell, and a small display on the steering wheel, but we talk about it a little later.
By the way, the maximum supported weight for this bike is 100 kg.
Okay, let’s start the features review with the battery. HIMO Z20 has a removable 10Ah battery. A removable battery is a big advantage because you can store your bike in a garage or parking lot, and take the battery home or office for charging.
It takes 5 hours to fully charge the battery.
Range or mileage of HIMO Z20
If we started talking about the battery, then I should say about the range of the new electric bike HIMO. The maximum range of HIMO Z20 is 80 km, but it is in mixed mode, when you pedal, but sometimes use the motor power, for example, when riding up the hill.
If you ride only in electric mode, and do not pedal at all, the range is about 50 km, which is also good.
By the way, the motor has a power of 250 W. It has a top speed of 25 km/h.
I promised to tell you about the display on the steering wheel. As you can see, it’s pretty small, but it shows the most important information, such as battery level, speed, distance and ride mode.
HIMO Z20 has three riding modes: full electric, pedal, and mixed.
It looks like the new HIMO electric bike does not have a Bluetooth module, and therefore does not connect to a smartphone.
That’s all I learned about the new HIMO Z20 electric bike. However, we need to discuss the price and where to buy it.
Price and buy HIMO Z20
HIMO Z20 was presented on the YouPin platform, and so far, it is only available there. Its price is $465.
I have no doubt that in the near future, perhaps a month or two, it will be sold on the popular Chinese online shops such as Aliexpress, GearBest, Banggood and others. Later I will add links where you can buy HIMO Z20.
