Cycle News Staff | December 27, 2023 

Surron has rereleased the Light Bee S electric motorcycle for the US market. The Surron Light Bee X has attracted a huge cultlike following worldwide over the past couple of years. The slightly smaller, less powerful Light Bee S can be considered the little sibling to the X model and Surron decided to relaunch it in the US market aimed at smaller and less experienced riders.

For comparison, the Light Bee S uses 17-inches wheels front/rear versus 19-inch on the X model. The seat height is 31.5 inches on the S compared to 32.6 inches on the X. The S also has less horsepower and torque, which results in a lower top speed due to a less powerful battery and motor combination. All of this is aimed at making the bike more user-friendly for those new to riding.

Surron has rereleased the Light Bee S model in the US market. It is a slightly smaller and less powerful version of the popular Light Bee X that is aimed at smaller and less experienced riders.

Don’t let the “low” horsepower numbers fool you into thinking these bikes don’t have enough power to be fun. As with any electric motor, the torque is instant and they have far more torque than most Internal Combustion motors. The Light Bee S has 162-foot pounds of torque at the rear wheel.

Like most other electric motorcycles, the Light Bee S has no clutch so the front and rear brakes are controlled via the handlebar mounted levers. This is usually a lot easier to learn for entry level riders.

The Light Bee S has a suggested retail price of $2799, making it competitive with other electric motorcycles and about $900 to $1200 less than comparable gas-powered motorcycles.

If you are comparing this to equivalent traditional gas-powered motorcycles, the Kawasaki KLX140 or KLX140L, Yamaha TTR125LE, Honda CRF125F or Honda CRF125F Big Wheel models. Those are in the $3700 to $3900 MSRP range and have similar overall size and seat heights. The Surron Light Bee S has an MSRP of $2799.

A lot of female riders will find that the Surron Light Bee S fits them well.

We have a lot of experience riding the Light Bee X (you can read our Surron Light Bee X review story here) and it has proven to be incredibly durable and reliable. The Light Bee S uses the same frame, swingarm and other primary components so we expect that it too will hold up to a lot of abuse.
