ZuGo Rhino Vs. Super73 ZX: The Bottom Line

Both e-bikes are constructed similarly in size, but the real difference lies in the details. ZuGo’s multiple gears, suspension, passenger pegs, superior brakes, and personalization options highlight the Rhino’s versatility. Whether you’re an extreme mountain biker, want a joyride to work, or want to bike with someone else, ZuGo offers flexibility and security you can’t get elsewhere. 

Although the Super73 ZX can match ZuGo in some respects, you’ll only be able to do so if you spend extra money. Super73 offers accessories such as headlights, chargers, and flexible gearing separately. In contrast, ZuGo Bike includes these features for free with every bike. The difference could amount to as much as $1000. 


The bottom line is that when you choose ZuGo, you can be confident you’re getting everything you need at a lesser price.
