The Ultimate Rover: Rover Plus
Rover Plus Story
Rover Plus is the latest addition to the DiroDi Rover series. Rover is one of the best selling electric bikes in Australia for good reasons: Rover is solid, reliable, versatile, comfortable, geat value for money and a head turner!
Now with Rover Plus , we have made this great bike even better. It has been designed with YOU in mind. Rover Plus comes with downhill grade front suspension forks, hydraulic brakes and a 48V 17.4ah battery, which is %11 larger than the battery used on the Rover range. Equipped with downhill grade front suspension forks, Rover Plus can be ridden on any terrain whether it’s city streets or mountainside trails. Having a larger battery, means you’ll get more miles between charges. We’re so excited about this bike, and we know you’re going to love it too! So read on to see how each feature makes Rover+, the only bike you will ever need!
SUPER POWERFUL 750W MOTOR
The Rover Plus (750w- 48v) is powered by a 750 watt motor and has a torque of 85 N.m for great hill climbing power, as well as being able to reach the speed of 40 km/h(but is locked to default speed at 25 km/h). The unique customised controller allows you to switch from 750w to 500w and 250w which gives you the option to conserve battery life depending on the terrain you are riding through. Rover has a brushless motor which has a long life and does not need maintenance service until you cross 40000 km.
Not all suspension systems are the same. We have $40 suspension forks and $10,000 ones. Cheap suspension forks only add an extra weight to the bike and don't make the ride more comfortable. The fact is 80% of bikes in the market come with those types of suspension forks. However, this is not the case with the suspension on the Rover+.
Rover+ comes with premium downhill grade front suspension forks. The suspension provides 8 cm of travel and is equipped with compression damping, meaning you can adjust the firmness/softness of the suspension or completely lock it to get a steadier ride on level ground where there’s no slope or bump to be absorbed.
The advantages of Rover Plus suspension don’t end here. Rover+ has a thru-axle front wheel attachment system as opposed to the conventional quick-release system. Here is a photo of the two attachment systems:
Thru-axle wheel attachment system has the following advantages over the quick-release one:
- They are much safer and more durable
- They have less flex, which eliminates unwanted brake pad and rotor rubbing and improves braking performance
- They improve handling, cornering and stability by stiffening the front end of the bike
- More consistent wheel alignment when removing and reinstalling the wheel. So you don’t need to readjust the brake each time you remove and reinstall the front wheel
- Thru-axles are the future standard. These days most mid to high end mountain bikes and electric dirt bikes come with Thru-axle hubs.
When choosing the right e-bike for yourself, you may be asked where you’re going to ride it and you may not have the answer to that! Rover is the perfect choice when you don't have a specific destination in mind and you just want to let your mood decide where to go. Thanks to the stylish KENDA fat tyres, Rover Plus (750w) is like an SUV that can be taken anywhere on most terrains from city streets to grass or even sand. So, if you don’t like the idea of being limited on your bike, Rover is the answer. It will take you where no skinny-tyred bike could!
TWO-PERSON BIKEThe DiroDi rover is the best option for you and your passenger everywhere from city leisure riding to weekend camping adventures. It is a bike that easily carries two adults with no trouble. You can name it the ultimate bike for families. Its large comfortable saddle, strong frame, and ease of handling make it easy for two people to enjoy their time together. This unique bike surely provides a great experience for you and your companion everywhere!
VINTAGE DESIGNGetting around town shouldn't be ordinary. As a spectacular one-of-a-kind rider who cares about traveling in-style, you deserve a bike that reflects your special nature. The Rover is inspired by retro-style vintage designs with a modern twist making you long to get more than just a ride. So, be prepared to turn heads as this classically styled cruiser will give you and the watchers the timeless feel of nostalgia. It’s a lifestyle that matches the taste of every rider who likes to stand out and let their image speak.
REMOVABLE & DURABLE BATTERY
Ride long distances with confidence on this powerful DiroDi Rover 750W. It is equipped with a premium 48 Volt 17.4AH battery with 2 to 4 years of efficiency which is a long life for a battery supporting 500 to 1000 recharge cycles. The battery is removable making it easy to charge at home or work or any other place where there is a power source. With this powerful battery, you can be very sure you won't get stuck anywhere in the town or off-road.
The powerful lithium-ion battery in DiroDi Rover Plus supports 85 km of range which simply means you can ride up to 85 km per charge. But what makes Rover Plus (750W) more versatile is the ability to be switched to lower modes such as 250W to give you an even longer range of 110 km! Its battery has a lifespan of up to 1000 recharge cycles. You can be sure that this functional battery will last you on your long commutes from going to the beach to camping out in the woods.
HEAD & TAIL LIGHTSIf you often find yourself biking at night or in low-light conditions, the Rover’s built-in strong head and tail lights are what you need. The powerful front light on this bike is an absolute blessing especially if you’re riding in off-road darkness. Not only does it have a cool motorcycle style but also it can guide you through the darkest terrains giving you the best vision. Both lights are powered by the main battery and that spares you the trouble of running short of light charge without being warned. Also, the blinking tail light in this bike makes your ride even safer.
DiroDi Rover Plus has a strong water-resistant structure making it superior in every aspect. You can ride it in all weather conditions without worrying about your bike getting drenched. This is particularly important if you live in Australia. With Rover, the rain won’t ruin your commute ever again!
It is the electric bike that lets you enjoy the great outdoors no matter what the weather. So go ahead—take it out for a spin in the rain!
LARGE SADDLEThe Rover's large cushioned saddle will guarantee you a comfy ride, especially while riding on old or uneven bumpy roads. The bike also has comfortable handlebars that allow the rider to attain a relaxed riding posture without putting too much pressure on the wrists or the back muscles. The cool feature of the large saddle also allows you to ride for hours on end without discomfort and it will make your experience better than ever giving you a sense of resting while riding!
PACKAGING 95% READYWhat makes the DiroDi Rover different is that it is basically %95 assembled. Yes, that means you will enjoy riding your bike without going through the complications of putting pieces together. The remaining is only 5 percent of the total pieces that will be super easy to assemble and you'll be riding away in a matter of minutes. The amazing Rover is easy to operate even for a first-time rider.
TWIST THROTTLEHaving a throttle is part of riding an electric bike whether you are off-roading or just on a casual ride along the bike path. A throttle is basically a lever that allows you to control your bike's power. The throttle on Rover(750W) is locked at 6km/h but it can be unlocked when you're biking off-the-road. It's especially helpful when you just don't feel like pedalling anymore but you want to keep your bike running ahead. The twist throttle system used in Rover(750W) is absolutely fun and popular with most bike riders and it gives you that cool feeling to ride in style with just the twist of your wrist.
LARGE LCD PANEL
The LCD Panels used on e-bikes can be most riders’ best travel companion and guide. They’re functional and have all the data useful on long rides and short commutes.
The water-resistant large LCD panel on Rover Plus (750) gives you the guide with speed, battery level, motor power mode, odometer and power assist level (6 levels) and more details. It also allows you to go through most settings like switching between motor power modes, 250, 500 and 750W and changing the max speed of the bike only by a tap on the display setting menu.
Keep your morning coffee mug on your bike! The step-over frame in DiroDi Rover Plus (750W) is designed with a simple and functional cup holder on it so you can enjoy your coffee while you commute or take a ride on leisurely weekends. This cup holder comes standard on our Rover in the most convenient and reachable spot on the frame and it helps you keep your cup handy.
You can consider the derailleur a blessing because it helps you tailor your ride according to what feels the most comfortable to you. Thanks to Shimano Derailleur changing gears in Rover Plus(750W) is done very smoothly and you can quickly switch gears on 7 different levels and tackle any terrain or slope. The option of a derailleur on an e-bike might be a basic idea and yet a very useful one!
There’s a happy medium in DiroDi: Offering a bike that comes with the extras you need so you don't have to buy them yourself and pay extra! Rover comes with the two of the most necessary things you need to hit the road right out of the box:
You will find a functional rustproof rear rack on Rover that is made from sturdy aluminium. This rack allows you to carry bags, baskets and other items up to 7 kg easily, securely and with confidence.
Rover is a two-person bike but it is also built for safety. The Rover's footrest with its rubber soles for non-slip grip is a great one to provide a safe place for your passenger to put their feet up and enjoy the ride while you take in the sights.
These two add-ons are exactly the features that make your ride the safest especially for your junior one.
What’s new in Rover+ ?
Rover+ is equipped with Tektro E350 hydraulic brakes, which provide great stopping power and let you stop on a dime when you need to. Hydraulic brakes have more stopping power, and being hydraulic means, you can pull the brake levers easier. The other advantage is that with hydraulic brakes, when the pads get worn, automatically, the distance between the pads and the disk are adjusted, whereas, with mechanical brakes, the brake should be readjusted manually every few hundred kilometres that the bike is ridden. So with hydraulic brakes, brakes are maintenance free until the pads need to be changed.
