The Stealth P-7R Adds A New Dimension to Trail Blazing

By | Stealth Dealers, Test Rides | One Comment

Stealth P-7R, leaving others in our dust. 

When Stealth Electric Bikes built the first Stealth B-52 Bomber way back in 2008, extreme sports aficionados lost their marbles over the arm stretching acceleration and eye popping top speeds that only the best downhill mountain bikers could reach, all in complete silence.

Earlier this month Stealth released their latest game changing electric mountain bike, appropriately named the Stealth P-7R. This latest electric cross country come trail bike promises to add a new dimension to the term “trail blazing” as it leaves its peers in a cloud of dust.

The latest “must have” for your toy collection has drawn its inspiration from the agile, road legal, Stealth P-7 but has been kitted out with a twist grip throttle and an all new drive train to take the fun factor up a level … or six.  Generating a 1500W boost of smooth, yet responsive power and the ability to reach speeds in excess of 45km/h, the new Stealth P-7R will give average riders super hero like powers for up to 150km.

Providing ground support for the P-7R’s performance power train, a fully adjustable suspension package offers 180mm (7”) of front travel backed up by 120mm (5”) of travel on the rear, all finely tune-able to suit any rider’s size or style. Reverse thrust is handled by powerful Magura MT5’s which provide precision performance and maximum safety.

When we asked Stealth’s technical guru Harry Powell what he liked most about the P-7R, he replied without any hesitation – “This beast climbs steep hills like they’re gentle slopes and when you feel like cruising, the rear suspension lockout combined with the freewheeling hub lets you pedal it just like a regular mountain bike.”

Other cool features found on the P-7R include 27.5” wheels, 9 speed gearing for maximised pedal efficiency, a concentric swingarm pivot designed to minimise pedal bob, integrated headlight, ruggedised kickstand and of course Stealth’s signature, lifetime frame warranty.

Whatever the time of day, whatever the season.  Check out the Stealth website for more information or book a test ride with your local Stealth Authorised dealer today.

Profile of Supercross Rider and Stealth Dealer – John Prutti

By | Stealth Dealers, Test Rides | 2 Comments

John Prutti is Stealth Electric Bikes’ Authorised Dealer in the ACT region of Australia, he is know for his skills and prowess in the Motocross arena and coaching up and coming MX talent.

Last year John created an awesome video show casing the full range of Stealth bikes Capital Stealth offer. The catchy music and beautifully shot scenes caught our customer’s attention and they wanted to know more about the video and the man behind it all. We caught up with John and asked him a few questions.

When did you first ride a Stealth bike?

Back in 2014, the Stealth team were shooting “The Shape of Things to Come” video starring my good mate Caroline Buchanan. I had ridden Caroline’s B-52 a few times and Stealth had seen some of the footage of my skills so they invited me along to star as one of the stunt riders.   Before I knew it I’d signed up to be a Stealth dealer and the rest is history

 

When did you first ride a motorcycle and what got you hooked on the sport?

I started motorcycle ride at age 4 on a PW50. The freedom had me instantly hooked and I haven’t looked back since, on any kind of two wheels.

How did you start riding bikes professionally?

It was always a dream to pursue racing professionally. I worked super hard up through the ranks over the years to cement my name as a professional rider.

 

What are the highlights of your riding career?

For me the highlights would be getting to travel and race for teams abroad. Whether that be in California or Indonesia. I’ve always enjoyed the travel/race scene.

 

Have you ever done anything on a bike which made you think ‘best not try that again’ afterwards?

I think we all have. No matter how good we are, there is always the odd occasion where we run out of talent!

 

You coach and train MX riders in Canberra, have you ever trained someone who went on to go pro?

I do yes, my passion is anything with two wheels. I’ve learnt so much over the years from being an athlete and love nothing more then passing on that information. Just last month I had an 8 year old who I’ve worked with weekly enter an invitational race in Las Vegas. So you could say the future is looking bright!

 

The video got a great response from Stealth fans, what was your inspiration?

I guess I felt there was a small void missing. I wanted to showcase the versatility of each model. Whether that’s cruising on into work through the city on the all new P7 or jumping spoon drains at 80km/h on the B52.

Some of the locations you used look amazing, where were they?

Filming started on the P-7 in the Canberra City, I’m sure plenty of locals will recognise a few of the clips. We then ventured to the coast for a few days to a private property to shoot the other models, which is where the pilot lived.

You had a whole bunch of people in the video, who are these guys?

The cast consisted of myself, friends and a happy customer who was eager to help out!

 

We have seen heaps of photographs from your shoot, they look amazing, who is primarily the photographer?

I have used a few different photographers, however for the most part I’m usually the one behind the lens.

 

“The pout isn’t here to take part, it’s here to take over”

 

The Pruttie Pout

The ‘Prutti Pout’ is a trade mark classic of yours and some would argue it surpasses Blue Steel and even Magnum, what can we expect to see from you in the future?

The pout isn’t here to take part, its here to take over. I can assure you, there will be plenty more where it came from!

Who’s helicopter is in the video?

A good friend of mine owns the Enstrom 280FX. His not afraid of showing it off either. Who could blame him!

What was the best part of shooting the video?

Riding the whole stealth range for four days straight!

What was the most frustrating aspect of shooting the video?

I don’t think there are any. It was nothing but good times showcasing an amazing product that I’m passionate about.

Where are you based and are you able to provide test rides?

Tharwa, ACT. Test rides are available, whether that be on a tight MX track with berms or just fire trail like trails. We have the facility to suit all rider abilities.

What is your favourite stealth and why?

I couldn’t say, they all have their own niche. The B-52 is hard to say no to though, the acceleration is addictive.

What makes electric power stand out from petrol powered bikes?

The instantaneous power and the fact it is silent. Customers are always very surprised by both factors. They’re also much easier to work on than an MX bike and when you don’t have to deal with oil and petrol, there’s a lot less mess.

 

John is available 5 days a week to help with sales enquiries and technical support, so if you want to try before you buy contact John today

Introducing California’s Stealth utopia

By | Stealth Dealers, Test Rides, USA | One Comment

 

Owning a Stealth bike is a utopian dream for many extreme sports junkies all over the globe. They lust over the hardcore, box-section frame, the moto-style upside down forks, and they even buy a Stealth keyring for their car keys, just to serve as an everyday reminder. Fittingly, Stealth’s latest USA dealer, Motopia, exists to serve anyone passionate about two-wheeled sports. As their name suggests, they’re a utopia for Californians just like you.

 

From humble beginnings in a vacant, 1400 square foot warehouse in San Bernardino, Motopia has expanded to now cover two locations in Marin and Riverside, CA, where they’re surrounded by some world-renowned off-road terrain.

 

Mountain biking fanatics will know the Marin name well; its association with one of the first ever mountain bike brands (with which it shares a name) proves just how important the region is for two-wheeled adventurers. Fittingly, then, it’s the ideal terrain for new Stealth owners to acclimatise with their purchases, giving them space to dial up full power in open terrain.

 

“I don’t think anyone would be surprised to know that there is a massive Stealth fan base in wider Cali’,” said Stealth’s Sales Manager, Theresa Mischkulnig. “They have mountains and world-class riding terrain within a very short drive of their nearest Stealth dealer, which also creates some very inspiring test ride opportunities.”

Motopia 2

 

Head just 21 miles north-west of Motopia’s Marin branch, and you’ll arrive in Marin County, The Birthplace of Mountain Biking, and a rich network of well-worn trails that have seen the tyres of some of the finest riders on earth.

 

“Marin County is heaven for Stealth bikes”, said Motopia’s CEO, Justin Rastegar, “and the number of calls we’re getting already is a good reflection of that.” But this goes a long way toward explaining the changes we’re seeing as technology begins to impact the mountain biking and motor biking worlds alike.

 

“If you think about it, Marin is one of our newest Stealth markets because it’s home to such a robust and well-established traditional mountain biking community – these are guys and girls that have taken time to be convinced that our technology is the real deal, and that it’s making a huge contribution to their sport,” added Stealth CTO, John Karambalis.

 

“These very guys and girls are now buying our bikes in droves, which is hugely satisfying for us – it’s validation that we’ve taken the mountain bike experience and wound it up to 11.”

 

Motopia’s customers, then, are facing what can only be described as an idealistic landscape for Stealth ownership – literally. They have fast, flowing and fine-tuned terrain just a stone’s throw from their local Stealth home, and this home is one family-owned and family-run, committed to bringing you a Stealth experience of your own.

“Houston, do you read me? The Stealth range has landed.”

By | Stealth Dealers, Test Rides, USA | One Comment

 

“Houston, we had a problem.” To date, there has been no Stealth Electric Bikes dealer in the outer space capital of the USA, but the big news is that that’s just changed: welcome Texas Yamaha, the latest addition to a flourishing line-up of US-based Stealth dealers.

 

Texas Yamaha has a commanding footprint across the city of Houston, with their three showrooms – Pasadena, Texas City, and Webster – all home to Stealth Electric Bikes’ finest metal.

 

“It’s quite fitting that we now have a solid presence in Houston,” said Stealth’s Sales Manager, Theresa Mischkulnig. “Although, I feel like our bikes probably belong even more at NASA than they do at a powersports dealer, but hey, you’ve got to start somewhere.”

 

Texas Yamaha’s Sales Manager, Bo, is just as upbeat about presenting a new model line-up to his customers. “Yamaha is surely the most recognised motorcycle brand in the USA, so it’s only fitting that we match it with the most respected electric bike brand, too,” he said.

 

Stealth is rapidly amassing a cult following in the USA. As terrain for using petrol-powered trail bikes becomes even more regulated and controlled, the near-silent aggression of the Australian-made machines means they fly past park rangers and hikers, almost undetected.

 

“An increasing number of our buyers come to the brand for its market-leading technology, and I guess you could say that these are ‘tech head’ riders”, said Stealth’s founder, John Karambalis, “but we’re beginning to attract a new dimension of fans, too, and they’re the guys and girls who just want ride fast without gaining unwanted attention”.

 

It’s this new breed of two-wheeled junkies that Texas Yamaha is looking to attract into their showrooms, and the ability to offer the finest petrol-powered machines alongside Stealth’s world-class electric and hybrid-electric technology, means they have a sure-fire chance of meeting the demands of a very diverse market.

 

“We’re already seeing two main customer groups taking the most interest in Stealth bikes: one doesn’t have a huge amount of experience with traditional dirt bikes; and the other has grown up riding them, but is starting to look for something new,” said Bo.

 

Bo’s experience is not dissimilar to most other Stealth dealers across the globe, and the customisable power outputs of each Stealth model ensure you can keep the rule-makers happy by switching down the power at the push of a button… only to switch it straight back up again when you’re off the open road.

 

It’s the technology that adds unparalleled levels of refinement to the Stealth’s decidedly bomb-proof chassis, creating an overall package that’s fast and finessed all at the same time. It’s technology that wouldn’t look out of place at NASA, so it seems Stealth’s arrival in Houston means the brand really has found a second home.

 

So, if you’re in Houston, get into Texas Yamaha for a test ride, and you’ll quickly learn why Stealth is the USA’s premium e-bike of choice.
