Please note this bike is shipped factory programmed for 750 watts for street use. Although each drive is shipped with a programming cable for adjusting pedal cadence levels, we do not approve hacking the program settings to un-limit ebikes ridden on public roads. However those that want to re-program for off-road private property use can find many guides on the internet.
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.
LUDICROUS OPTION AVAILABLE
We are offering the ludicrous 2500 wattt option for this bike, a Luna exclusive. For off road and racing use only, you can update your Luna Banana into a powerhouse beast for an extra $250.
If you opt for the Ludicrous option we recommend going with a 50 Amp continuous output soft pack as the shark frame pack can only put out more than 30 amps for a few seconds before dialing back the power.

Panasonic 48v GA 13.5ah Battery
The battery is the most vital of any ebike. We use the best 18650 cells available (the Panasonic GA) which offer both amazing energy density and high performance. We make our packs with quality BMS, cases and cutting edge technology. You can have confidence that when this bike is outfitted with a Luna Cycle battery you are getting the ultimate in reliable, safe, performance at an affordable price. Our competitors sale a 48v of this pack for over $1000. Look here for more Info on this pack.
Research ebike battery packs and you will see the Panasonic GA Shark is the best battery available today.
We use a quick change pack which allows you to extend your range by quickly swapping the pack. You can swap packs in about a minute.
Mounted Inside the Triangle - Perfect
This bike has the largest triangle we have ever seen. It comes with up to 13.5ah battery but you have unlimited room to add more batteries. This bike is an ebike upgrader's dream.
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.
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)
Luna Cycles realizes that not everyone is into building and is offering a unique frame 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
Like all the Luna Bikes this bike comes with the DPC-14 a full color display which gives you valuable insight such as battery life, speed, and miles traveled. It automatically changes to dark mode when the sun goes down so you ride in “stealth” mode. There are very few production bikes under $5,000 with this quality of display.
21 Piece Luna Toolkit
Because we feel every rider should have the capacity to wrench, we are including a free luna kit which is all tools we either made or hand selected to be perfect companion to one of our mid drive bikes.
This will help you because our high performance mid drive bikes will need occasional adjustments, This kit along with our video guides will give you the tools you need.
Quality Mechanical Disc Brakes
At Luna Cycle we believe stopping fast is as important as going fast, and this bike uses Tektro Mechanical Disc Brakes. These Avid Brakes are reliable and convenient.
The large 180mm front/160mm rear rotors helps prevent your brakes from overheating on long mountain descents.
This is a small sized wheel bike (20 inch wheels with a low seat.
It is a one sized fit all frame, nearly anyone over 5 feet can fit comfortably. You can ride this bike if you are over 6'6" but it is not that comfortable.
We love small wheel, short frame bikes because of the stability they give, and the confidence you get when riding them even off road.
This seat is 30 inches off the ground.

We are an eCommerce company and ship this bike to you wherever you are at. 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 knowledgebase 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.
Well made and fun bike to ride!
Posted by John on May 16th 2017
I have owned the ruckus for about 2 months or so now, and i have really enjoyed it! its a well made bike, with a very comfortable seat. the motor is solid and the range is about as expected. currently with some light pedaling i get about 10-15 or so miles on a 52v 13.5ah battery, assuming you keep it below 80%. if i want the bike to go about 18-21mph with some petal assist it draws out about 7 amps (i think its amps?) according to the display. and about 10-12 on setting two when going 25-30. not sure if those numbers help anyone! im guessing a regular road bike is probably more efficient but i really like the ruckus because the tires feel like they are pretty thick and resilient, and its a more casual ride
one thing you should realize tho is because of the unusual shape of the bike and frame a lot of typical bike accessories are going to have issues fitting onto the bike, for example the light i bought from amazon had to be put on sideways and can be difficult to adjust properly. the rack i installed on the back has to lean slightly back (just get the rack from luna if you need one),. due to the placement of the seat. also keep in mind it may prove challenging to find replacement tires, thankfully i have not had to look into it extensively but from some limited research they are a quite unconventional and may require purchase from coast cycles, which is located in singapore (high shipping).
i had some issues with the battery that i was able to get a lot of help from luna about, they walked me through troubleshooting and have been very responsive in emails. they are always willing to help it seems, and they are very knowledgeable and patient with novices like me.
but if your looking for a head turner of a bike, or a confortable casual bike. i would highly recommend this bike. it can also fancy itself as a commuter bike like i use it for just fine with a little fiddling with the accessories
The Ruckus is one fun Bike and Luna Cycles Just made it better!
Posted by Ian Lewis on Nov 23rd 2016
This bike is so much fun and puts a smile on everyone's face who see's it, but most importantly it puts a big smile on my face!
I bought Ruckus directly from Coast Cycles and added the Luna Cycles bbhd kit. Now I see Luna Has them for sale and I could have saved $$$, had it professionally installed, and tested by The best ebike/ebike kit sellers in North America. Luckily for you Luna is selling these at a absolutely amazing price. it is $1000 less than their competitors(11/2016). If you compare this to lithium cycles super 73 as I did you will notice the Ruckus frame is a master piece and make the LCS73 look like a middle school summer project. That is probably because Coast Cycles has been refining the frame for several years and It shows.
I have had my bike for a month And love it.... both bike and the kit work flawlessly! I can tool around town and go do errands and commute to work. Now I look at my car and think about selling it. I barely use it anymore. The kit is powerful and you can choose if you want to use the PAS(pedal assist mode) or the throttle both are very responsive. the battery I got was the 48w17.5a which is massive and can take me about 20-30 miles here in Seattle.
This frame is for people 5'4" and above. I am 5'3" and am on my tips of my toes.
Also if you want to go off road get some knobby tires. I hope some day they make a smaller frame built around a 16"x 3" tire.
