General Description 

The Luna Banana is a unique design bike that looks like an old school 70s mini bike.

This is a quality design made by highly respected frame builder Coast Cycles who recently won a coveted award for bicycle design in Taiwan.

It is a quality built bike with quality components.

Its banana seat allows you to easily carry an extra passenger, and has a very laid back riding style.

It has 20 inch fat tires that are shaped like motorcycle tires for great performance both on the road and off road.  The tires are rounded for awesome cornering.

We love the short and wide tires for an electric bike. Because the bike is low it is very easy to ride on even technical offroad and it is a blast to ride. 

This battery is our most sophisticated battery ever.

The New fusion Wolf battery features:

  • 14s4p 12ah 50 amp continuous rated
  • Panasonic GA high performance cells
  • High Power and reliable Luna BMS  
  • Waterproof and shock proof battery fully enclosed with potting
  • Single cell fusing with machine wirebonded connections
  • Magnetic battery mount holds the battery to the frame with 150 pounds of force
  • Our highest tech battery ever
  • Built with love in USA


New accessories available!

Why buy from Luna a New Ebike Company You Haven’t Heard Of?

Read our recent Ebike Mission Statement
Google Luna Cycle Ebike

Read this recent Ebike School Article about Luna Cycle.


Build upon quality Bicycles

We start with bikes that are proven as quality bicycles with quality components.
Not many people want to ride a $100 bike from Walmart made in China (the best bikes are made in Taiwan and elsewhere) and we do not start with $100 bikes to base our builds.
That really separates us.  If you want to know why some of our bikes are so expensive research the bike we base the build on.  Then research the battery packs and the electric drive units we power the bike with... nothing but the best on a Luna bike.
Honestly you will not find a better bike at a lesser price.  We get by on much lesser margins than our competitors and buy big on quality components and bikes and pass that savings on to you.

Top of the Line Mid Drive Motor Set Up


Luna is offering this ebike in a BBSHD format. These drives are the most reliable and powerful drive systems available on the market today, do your own research to back that up.  And much more expensive for us to buy than a cheap hub motor.  But we are selling them for less money than cheap hub motor bikes typically sell for.
These mid drives are completely silent, efficient, and fun to ride. They have quality color display and both throttle and pedal assist.

We do our own custom tuning to these drives that nobody offers and can support them better than anyone else.

Last year we sold more BBSHDs than the rest of all the dealers combined. There is a good reason for that. 
Luna Cycles offers no hub motor bikes, but only mid drive bikes because we believe in offering only the cutting edge.  
You will not find this quality with any production bike at this price point anywhere.
Or you can save even more money by converting your own bike and buying one of our kits here. (read about the advantage of mid drive here)
LunaCycle realizes that not everyone is into building and is offering a turn key Fat Bike with a BBSHD drive (read about our most popular drive here). This is still another price break through for a quality bike with quality components.  We want to make awesome ebikes affordable for everyone.
Although we specialize in build your own kits, Luna can build your bike for you at a fraction of the price a store bought bike would cost you for this amazing performance.

Color Display / Control Center


This bike now ships with the new 500C display by default


Like all the Luna Bikes, this bike comes with your choice of full color display which gives you valuable insight such as battery life, speed, and miles travelled.  There are very few production bikes under $5,000 with this quality of display.


Frame Sizing

Please don't stress about about frame size the way you do when you buy a pedal bike, it’s not as important.

With electric bikes it is not important to get the right frame sizing, since you are not reliant on efficient human power for propulsion, you won’t notice much of a difference since the motor is doing the lion's share of the work. We actually recommend going with a smaller size with an ebike than you would get for a pedal bike, because smaller sizes are better for keeping the weight and center of balance low, and are easier to get on and off of (since ebikes are heavier they are more awkward to tilt to swing your leg over). You can always raise your seat or raise your handlebars, but keep the center of balance low and get a smaller sized bike if you can.

Please see the images for a rough size guide.

Warranty Options on Luna Ebikes

We are an eCommerce company and ship this bike to you wherever you are at.   We are selling manufacturer direct to save you money but you should realize it is not the same as paying full price from a local ebike shop.  We charge minimal markup because we do not offer face to face support.  Most of our sales are to enthusiasts and to builders who know what they want and don’t need a lot of assistance from their dealer. You can use our forums and knowledge base to find the answer to almost any support question you have.

If you expect your bicycle to be flawless and never need adjustment or maintenance, we recommend that you buy your ebike from a local brick and mortar ebike store if you have one near you, especially if you want person to person support when it comes to adjustments and maintenance of your ebike.  We do not offer this level of support.

Bikes are large and expensive to ship, and once you ride it it is used, and we do not offer any returns on your bike unless it is dead on arrival.

For 30  days after you get the bike we will replace any parts that are defective.
These are just bicycles and are easy to maintain and to work on…. And we really encourage you to learn basic bicycle maintenance or get a relationship with a local bike shop.

The Drive system and battery we will cover for 90 days for part replacement.  

Extended warranties are available for 6 months and 1 year and 2 year for an added cost. Warranty covers any parts that are defective we will send to you with instructions how to install.

Since our drive systems are modular every repair is easy with the right part in hand.

That being said this a high quality bike with a high quality component system and should be as solid as any ebike. However you will be required to do routine adjustments and maintenance on your own.




Shipping notes:

WE SHIP BIKES TO USA AND CANADA ONLY. FOR HAWAII AND ALASKA PLEASE CONTACT US TO ARRANGE THE ORDER. Your bike will be shipped as freight from our Southern California warehouse so it's not your usual small packet delivery truck that will handle it. If the shipping address you used is a residential one then the delivery date that is shown on the tracking system is likely not the day that they will deliver it to. It's the day that FedEx will call you to schedule the delivery appointment. Best is to call them a day ahead of that date! We generally ship this bike on Friday after the stated lead time for your particular order. For lead time estimates see this page

Luna Banana

I got this bike about a year ago. I hadn't been on a bike in years and wanted the bike I dreamed of when I was a kid! Also, I have a wife, 2 kids, and 1 car. My wife's job, the kids school and our home are all within walking distance of each other. My job is about 7-8 miles across town. I live in Oakland and our traffic can you an hour round trip to my job and back on a bad day. So now I got the Luna Banana BBSHD with a 52 volt 13.5 AH battery. Comfy. Beefy. Looks like it goes faster that it does. I get to work or home from work in about 20-25 minutes. Charge once a day after a round trip. I'm 6 foot 1 and weigh about 205 lbs, so I'm working this thing out! From my job to my kids school/wife's job is about 7 miles and a 2.5% grade, easy, fun, city riding. Than if I ride from my wife's job or kids school to my house it's about 1 mile and a 25%grade, one hell of a climb, but only about 10 minutes. I've only had a couple flats(I use Stanz now), and only had my battery die once(definitely learned that in my first week). No battery, no good in my neighborhood. I've added fenders, front/rear bike racks, and lights. This ride is awesome! Some bikers don't like me but screw it. I got to get to work or little league or ballet practice or whatever and this day in age, I enjoy the comfy seat and fat tires not hurting my ass after all day at work. I only wish I had a longer lasting battery.
Ride on!!!
