We often get asked, “What are the real differences between the Aurora Limited Edition and the Galaxy 500?”
Both are powerful, easy-to-use all-around bikes with virtually no maintenance headaches.
I am going to run through some of the key features between each bike and talk about why you’d want to get one over the other.
Visually you can see both bikes have a different style. The Galaxy 500 has a classic cruiser look and the Aurora Limited has a modern take on the comfort cruiser, but let’s dig a little deeper.
Both Have a Low Step-Through Frame
Low step-through frames make it easy to get on and off. Even if you don’t have mobility issues – It’s reassuring knowing you can hop off or get both feet on the ground quickly and easily.
The Galaxy 500 is our lightest full-sized eBike
At approximately 55 lbs with battery (47 lbs with the battery removed) – It weighs 16 lbs less than the Aurora Limited.
Both Have an Upright Riding Position & Swept Back Cruiser Handlebars
The Galaxy 500 has a more compact frame and 24” wheels, for an easy-to-handle, compact rider, and is best suited to riders 4’10” up to 5′ 10″.
The Aurora Limited features a 26” wheel and slightly taller frame, while still offering easy on-off access and an upright riding position.
Galaxy 500 Motor Size
With a powerful 500W motor and full throttle control – the Galaxy 500 has enough power for most riders. You also get an internally geared hub and Enviolo’s Automatic electronic shifting—so you don’t have to worry about changing gears, just enjoy the ride.
You also get full fenders, lights, and rear cargo rack, for great all-around utility.
Aurora Limited Edition Motor Size
The Aurora Limited has a powerful 750W torque-sensing motor, for smooth, powerful operation. It also has throttle control at all speeds.
The Aurora Limited comes with a wide, 2.8” tire and front suspension fork, for maximum comfort and stability, and uses an internally geared Enviolo hub that is controlled electronically, and even shifts automatically.
The Aurora Limited also offers great utility, with the included lights, brake light, fenders, and integrated rear cargo rack. It’s a do-it-all utility bike geared towards comfort.
Both Bikes are as Low Maintenance as You Can Get
Each bike comes with the Gates Carbon Drive transmission. This gives you a smooth, quiet ride and means you don’t need to worry about greasing a traditional chain.
The riding position is very upright, for great visibility and control. Both bikes have self-adjusting hydraulic brakes allowing for a very low-maintenance machine.
Which Bike is right for me?
- If you want a lighter bike that’s easy to manoeuver – The Galaxy 500 is going to be a great fit.
- If you’re on the taller / heavier side and want a little extra power to conquer all the local hills, the Aurora Limited will get you there.
Both bikes are easy to use, built with quality components and designed to be virtually maintenance-free.
