Luna is happy to release the new “X” controller for the Sur Ron in limited quantities, Sur ron has been working on this controller for several months. Luna has helped them with final tune and adjustments.
Sine wave controllers are the latest in brushless motor controllers which smooth out many of the rough edges of the old school “square wave” controllers, resulting in 30% less noise compared to the stock controller!
The next big difference is that you will notice is much smoother throttle response off the line. Sine Wave controllers are digitally controlled and programmed, resulting in a much smoother and more predictable power curve throughout the entire range of operation.
In addition to the improvements in driving mannerisms, this controller outputs approximately 20% more torque.
In real world testing we saw a ~10% increase in top speed.
This controller has regen coasting which comes on when coasting at speeds of over 8mph. Regen braking puts charge back into your battery and most importantly preserves your brake pads.
You can also turn Regen off by hitting the "eco" switch whenever coasting and you will roll naturally without any regen resistance. This means you can coast like a bike when you want to.
For a comparison to stock controller covering lower noise and regen coasting see the video below
