Let's be honest, anyone who comes in here with their "herpderp my 10k Batty wud smoke ur Electric bike in a racezz" is either jelly they can't afford one or just too dumb to understand the point of owning one. It's got nothing to do with races. 

 

As for the general criticism of the KERS, I don't understand it. If it was easier to recharge or lasted longer, it'd be pretty OP, no? Which people spend a lot of time complaining about. The 2 things I use it for are boosting from a standstill or to quickly get out of a danger zone, typically when I'm cornered by cops, or to get me up a hill with no run-up which I'd have NO chance of doing on any other bike. 

 

The price? Well, yeah, compared to the other bikes it's a huge rip-off. But I think all the other bikes are way underpriced. Haku should've been 200k or so, while the Bati at 100k+. The scrub bikes should be down in the 10-30k region. So I didn't mind paying 700k at all considering it's the same money most people drop on a fugly Zentorno or similar.

 

Don't be so narrow minded.

 

I own a Lectro and I know perfectly well how to use it.  I stated facts about the KERS.  If you don't understand it then it's you who doesn't know how to use the bike.

 

 

Did I quote you? Are you one of the derpers talking about Bati vs Lectro racing? 

 

... didn't think so. Not sure why you're getting snarky. I also know perfectly well how to use it. Hence why I'm in the appreciation thread posting about it. 

 

 

You didn't quote anyone, and I was discussing the fact that it's slower than the most commonly used speediest bikes so it was appropriate for me to respond to you.  A Bati, Akuma, Hakuchou or even a well ridden Ruffian would "smoke" the Lectro.  I can quite happily say that and I am not "jelly I can't afford one or just to dumb to understand the point of owning one".  Too many people in here are so weak that they can't accept even the vaguest criticism of something that they have.

 

And I'm not "getting snarky".  I'm merely responding to your post that was (intended or not) a response to a conversation I was taking part in.

I'm also finding it's a GREAT troll-punishing vehicle. My funny little story:

 

So I need to do my daily objectives, including impromptu race. Get a buddy to do it with me. I zip off in my Lectro only to get rifled off by some douche. I was in passive but apparently this forces you out of it. Whatever. Respawn, snipe him, get on bike, finish objective. Then I go back to passive to message my friend thanks. Meanwhile this other guy is stood next to me shooting the hell out of me...while I'm in passive. He gets a car, parks it by me, then uses his PV to ram it into me. At this point I'm all about the lulz. I ride 100m or so, get off the bike, walk a few feet away and stop. Guy gets out his minigun and blows the sh*t outta my car. I just smile. Sooooo satisfying knowing that dumb kid was sitting there smug, thinking somehow making a quick call to MORS makes a difference to me, but that he can do it because why not? Only to realize it just cost him 10k. Quickly called Mors and the Mechanic JUST to make sure I was back riding again before he could leave. Just to remind him how pointless it was. In fact, the bike was in better condition than before he blew it up. Heh.

At 25 seconds into that video it looks like he tries to pull a wheelie at speed, and it basically does an Akuma.

 

Disappointed does not even come close.

 

#ruffianmasterrace

 

So, I thought I'd add my 2¢ to the thread, after testing this bike for a while.

 

Here's my observations:

 

1. At $750, I thought this thing would be able to fly.

2. Minimal cosmetic upgrade options (primary & secondary colors).

3. Best advantage is in races where a fully upgraded version can beat other bikes easily (with NOS) and overtake stock versions, with some skill.

4. Design is really sweet and it's a very pretty bike.

5. Akin to what Furry_Monkey wrote, it feels a lot like an Akuma or a Nemesis (both of which I owned, but didn't keep).

6. Most stunts end up in frustration, though this bike requires more patience and excellent timing (see pics below).

7. NOS is novelty and works best in races and missions. In Free Roam, it'll get you away pretty quickly, too.

8. NOS can be tricky and this is where the timing comes in. Often, I'll wheelie and push the thumbtick down, by mistake, ending in a crash.

9. Not the Bati/Ruffian killer I though it would be – it's something else.

10. I enjoy handing it off to others to ride, and hearing the "oh wow! it's that new bike that costs a million dollars! woah! thanks, dude!"

 

Down at Cypress Flats, there's a long stretch of train tracks that I like to test my stunt bikes on:

0_0.jpg
 

The jump is the Jersey barriers, which send you air-ward toward the factories/warehouses:

0_0.jpg

I did this jump about 30 times with the Lectro, landing it successfully four times, once with NOS.
All other attempts ended up crashing at the Jersey barriers, no matter my timing. When I did make it, 

the bike took me to the road at the end, which is mighty far! I believe the NOS may have given a slight

boost through the air, as well – I can't be sure, though.

I did the same jump with my Bati and successfully landed it 8 out of 10 times, landing in the same spot as the Lectro.


0_0.jpg

 

OVERALL IMPRESSION:


I think it's a really sweet ride with a fun, novelty boost advantage with NOS.
For me, however, it does not hold up to my desire to jump over every little bump I find, like I can with the Bati or the Ruffian.
Road performance is good, but not great. Braking, like other bikes can be little shaky, especially going into curves, but not terrible.

I appreciate the bike for what it is – I just wish it had more of what it doesn't.

If you're a collector, then it's  agreat addition to the garage, for sure! 

I'm planning on holding onto it until Ill Gotten Gains 2 comes out, then I'll decide if it's a keeper or a wish-it-had-been-more bike. 

Anyhow, my 2¢. Cheers!

I remember shooting my way into the Lost compound, so excited to ride the new bike. Before i even made it to the street, I knew that bike was sh*t. In this game, a system that uses braking to recharge the boost is worthless. Brakes? Who uses those?

Bro, do you even streetbike?

 

Bro, do you even humor?

Bro, some people on this forum seem to honestly believe some crazy sh*t.
Sorry your humor was lost on me.

Damn interwebs.

When I had mine, primary was white and secondary red. Looked awesome but I got rid of it mainly because of the underwhelming performance.

I am a bike collector of sorts, so I have the top 6 fastest bikes as well if I want to race, but there is something refined about the lectro that keeps me riding it....

and I love the ducati white with red frame scheme. I have it on my single headlight pcj600.

It'll be your R2.  Kers only works when it is fully depressed, and it's very very fussy about the use of the word "fully".  Other people have had the exact same issue and it went away when they reassigned buttons, changed controllers or even took their controller apart and cleaned it.

Well, who knows what all that nonsense could mean.  It's probably just a trick to make people look foolish, good for asking, HDailyGamer.  There be dragons in these boards....

Now that we got some more garage space, I had to buy one (despite its horrible price - thanks R*) to go alongside my fenderless Akuma and Double-T
Luckily I won the lotery the last few days, so it was affordable lol

And it looks like this, @1;15

I can't believe I didn't post this video in this thread...

 

 

 

Once I'd figured out how this bike likes to be handled I managed to get some decent stunts out of it.  There's nothing major in there but it can definitely stunt.
