I love the bike. I always wanted an e-bike because I live downtown where parking and daily travelling is a pain. The problem for me was that all e-bikes look like shit. Until now. Beachman puts as much effort into the style of the bike as they do the functionality. As soon as it showed up in my IG feed as an ad, I reached out to Ben (owner) and bought one within days. They delivered it to Hamilton and I started riding everywhere the next day. I even ended up selling my car because I hardly used it. If you were wondering if a Beachman bike is for you, it probably is. Not to mention the attention it gets. I was welcomed into the Hamilton bike scene right away, regardless of it being an e-bike. Harley riders even like this thing, which is not a surprise because they care as much about how their bike looks as they do how it rides. I always have to be prepared to chat with people when I show up. Everyone is interested in the Beachman.
I was looking to get into the motorcycle scene for a while, something to get me to work at back and for joy rides with my mrs. I was also looking at e-bikes because I didn't want to pay the insurance or have to worry about gas or maintenance on clunky old parts. I loved the idea of a cafe racer style bike and when I found out Beachman combined both cafe racer and ebike I was sold on the idea. One test drive and I had my wallet out. The Beachman pays for its self financially in about 2 years (trust me you'll be riding it alot), but the notoriety and credibility I got within hours of riding the streets was instantaneous. I get comments from big Harley owners, muscle car drivers, pedestrians and even the Doord*sh scooter mob. "It's so quiet", "Is this a T#sla motorcycle", "That bike is electric??" "That's the coolest ebike I have ever seen!" For anyone who is looking to get an instant return on their investment the Beachman is for you. For anyone who is looking to be a part of an amazing community the Beachman is for you. For anyone looking to support a Canadian/Toronto based start up, Beachman is for you. Go get one, you won't be disappointed!
No joke, commuting on this instead of the TTC has done more for my mental health than any exercise or meditation ever could. I also use it to deliver packages for my small business which is awesome. Be prepared: people will want to talk to you about it.
Best gift I ever bought for myself. Bought the last Founders Edition in late July of 2021.
Just hit 1100km on it in 5 months of commuting to work 10km a day. The gas savings and the fun factor cannot compare to anything else in the workweek.
