Comparison US and Europe Models


Why are Super73 sold in Europe priced differently than Super73 sold in the USA?

Europe has a different set of rules, certifications, market standards and regulations which we have to uphold. This combined with different duties and pricing structures when bringing our bikes to Europe, are the main source of the price differences. See below for further explanation. 

  • RX and S2: The best specs for the European market
    While the Super73 RX and S2 models sold to the US market have optional gearing, we automatically included those features on the bikes we import to Europe. We also upgraded the brakes to Magura, a trusted high-quality brand from Germany. The bikes have the same build, design, and features, but on the European market, we chose to offer only the best.

    • Certified and eligible for government incentives

    In terms of regulations and certification, Europe indeed has some of the highest standards regarding electric bikes. Super73 follows those regulations to ensure consumer safety. We therefore test each new bike model in accredited laboratories (such as TUV SUD) to make sure we follow all the required labelling and standards. The United States does not require those same tests or standards. These tests and certification do have an influence on our prices. Thanks to this, our bikes are certified Electric Pedal Assist Cycles (EPAC) and fall in the e-bike category required to receive government grants for end consumers. To learn more about government grants or refunds and what your country is doing to support your use of electric bikes, click here. 

    • Prices are not always what they seem
    At first glance, you may think that prices labeled on the US Super73 website are much lower than prices displayed on the European site. In the United States, advertised prices don’t include local state taxes, which range from 0% to 13.3% (such as in California). Those state taxes are added to the shopping cart. In Europe, the VAT is already included in the price displayed on the product page. On top of that, there are different import fees and other Value Added Taxes added to products coming into Europe.
