This electric bike comes with an LCD display on the centre of the handlebars. This display indicates your riding speed, the distance, and the battery level for your bike. The battery capacity is displayed with indicator bars. When the battery is depleted, the battery display will flash.

The display of this bike comes with different settings like sleep timer, brightness, and distance units. You can change the display settings by holding the up and down arrows at the same time to enter into the advanced settings menu. To adjust the settings click the up and down arrows when needed.

Seat and Handlebars

The seat of the Lectric XP is very comfortable for long rides. It is extra wide and plush for increased comfort. The handlebars on this bike are adjustable so that you can get your perfect fit. The ergonomic grips make the bars more comfortable if you are cycling for long periods. The pedals on this bike are also foldable and you just have to push down and move it outwards to unfold them.


Lectric XP comes with a 7-speed Shimano freewheel that lets the rider maintain a good level of pedalling speed and effort when riding on different terrains. Pedalling using the lowest gear lets you easily pedal up hills.

The highest gear lets you reach much higher speeds on flat terrains and downhill. You shouldn’t change the gears too quickly because this might cause the chain to fall off. You could lose control and suffer a serious injury.


The Lectric XP comes fully assembled so you do not need to do much. This bike comes with instructions for unboxing and getting familiar with the bike before you start riding. You may need to do a few adjustments to the bike because of how bumpy shipping can be.

The box comes with the bike, the Lectric XP charger, 2 battery keys, and a manual. You should ensure that all the cables and connectors for the front of the bike are well connected.  Make sure you read the entire manual before you start operating your bike.


This electric bike is equipped with mechanical disc brakes so that you can stop quickly even when cycling at very high speeds. You can engage the brakes by squeezing the brake levers towards the handlebars. The more force you apply on the brake levers, the more force is applied and the faster you will slow down the bike.

Due to the high amount of friction, the disc brake rotors can get too hot during use. This is due to the friction between the rotor and the brake pad so you should make sure not to touch it right after use.


This bike comes with a 48V lithium battery with LG cells. There is a set of keys that come with this battery turn it on and off and keep it locked to the frame. The battery is marked with 3 positions, On, OFF, and unlocked. Make sure to charge your battery to up to 75% if you are planning on going for a long ride.

The battery on the Lectric XP comes fully charged and you can charge it using the port on the side of the battery. It is removable and you should only charge it with the Lectric charger provided by Lectric eBikes.

Riding Experience

This bike is easy and fun to ride. The gears are easy to shift for a smoother and more comfortable experience. Because electric bikes are much heavier than normal road bikes, the Lectric XP comes fitted with a walk mode. This mode makes walking the bike much easier.

When you hold down the down arrow on the display control the motor will engage at a speed similar to that of a slow walk. The walk indicator will then appear on your display. When you want to deactivate the walk mode, you just simply pull the brake levers to engage the motor inhibitors.
