Talaria vs Surron - How Do These Electric Dirt Bikes Compare?

Electric motorcycles are becoming increasingly popular for off-road riding. Two of the most popular electric dirt bikes are the Talaria  and the Surron. In this blog post we'll compare the specs, performance, and key features of these two electric trail and dirt bikes to help you decide which might be the better option.

Talaria Overview:

  • Made by China company Talaria
  • Designed as a high performance electric trail/dirt bike
  • Uses a mid-drive electric motor with a top speed of 80 km/h
  • Two battery options - 15 kWh for about 120 km range or 20 kWh for 160 km range
  • Regenerative braking to charge battery while decelerating
  • Adjustable front and rear suspension
  • Over 200Nm of torque for great acceleration on trails
  • Less noise and emissions compared to a gas dirt bike

Surron Overview:

  • Made by Chinese company Surron
  • Also designed as an electric trail/dirt bike
  • Rear hub motor with a top speed of 65 km/h
  • Two battery options - 60V 32Ah for 50 km range or 60V 40Ah for 75 km range
  • Single piston hydraulic brakes front and rear
  • Inverted front fork and mono shock rear suspension
  • Instant and aggressive torque delivery from electric motor
  • Fat tires provide plenty of traction and absorb bumps well

Performance and Power:

The Talaria has the edge when it comes to performance and power output. Its mid-mounted motor provides over 200Nm of torque, allowing it to accelerate very quickly on trails. The top speed of 80 km/h is also faster than the 65 km/h maximum on the Surron. The Talaria's motor provides smooth and predictable power delivery for better control.

The Surron isn't far behind though. Its rear hub motor still provides tons of immediate torque and strong acceleration. The power delivery is a bit more abrupt compared to the Talaria. For technical trail riding, the Talaria may have an advantage, but the Surron is still very capable.

Battery Range:

With its larger 15 kWh and 20 kWh lithium-ion battery options, the Talaria can easily outdistance the Surron in terms of range. You can get up to 160 km from a full charge on the Talaria, while the Surron maxes out at around 75 km of range.

For longer rides on backcountry trails, the Talaria will allow you to go farther between charging stops. The Surron may require a bit more battery management if riding long distances.

Suspension and Handling:

Here the Surron gets back some points. Its inverted front fork and mono shock rear suspension soak up bumps extremely well. The fat tires also provide plenty of cushion. This gives the Surron excellent handling and control when riding over rough terrain.

The Talaria has quality adjustable suspension too, but it leans more towards high performance while the Surron focuses on stability and comfort. For technical trail riding, the Talaria may have an edge in handling. For casual trail riding, the Surron's plush suspension is hard to beat.


The Talaria retails for around $4699 USD while the Surron has a base price of around $5500 USD. You do get what you pay for in terms of performance and range, but the Talaria offers excellent value as an electric trail bike with great power and suspension at a more affordable cost.


For riders focused on power and performance for technical trail riding, the Talaria is likely the better choice between these two electric dirt bikes. It has an impressive mid-drive motor, long battery range, and quality suspension. However, the Talaria still holds its own with strong acceleration, plush suspension, and a more affordable price point. It comes down to your riding style and preferences. But either of these electric bikes deliver an exciting and environmentally-friendly experience on the trails.
