the responsibility for these risks, and it is important that you know how to ride responsibly
and to exercise proper maintenance to minimise such risks and potential damage. Do not
try to ride beyond the limits of your ability or the limits of the CARBON SUV E-BIKE.
We strongly recommend that you learn more about the inherent risks associated with
riding bicycles and suggest that you:
 Ask your local bike retailer for information or instruction on safe cycling.
 Ride within your means and ability.
 Attend a training session or safe cycling workshop run by many local bike
clubs, police departments, schools or government support groups.
 Always keep both hand on the handlebar and the eyes on the road.
 Search “bicycle safety” online for reference information.
Skills of riders can vary; for example, it takes a highly skilled rider to travel at high speeds
and/or close to obstacles, cars or other cyclists. Do not ride in a manner that exceeds the
limits of your ability.
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE

manufacturer of such device prior to the usage of MOTO PARILLA products.
2.3
Customizing
WARNING! Do not modify or customize your CARBON SUV E-BIKE or CARBON SUV EBIKE components in any way. Such modifications or refinishing will make void any
applicable warranty.
Modifications can cause damage which can increase the risk of failure and accident which
may result in serious injury or death. Refinishing can hide structural damage, such as
fatigue cracks or structural problems which may also result in an accident.
2.4
Maximum Design Limit
WARNING! This product has been designed with a maximum recommended weight limit of
100kg (220lbs) for the rider, clothing and all luggage, and is intended for use on paved
roads. For rider and luggage weight 100-115kg (220-250lbs): riding style, road condition, tire
pressures and luggage position may reduce product service life. Never exceed rider and
luggage weight at any time. Exceeding this limit will make void all warranties and may result
in the product being unsafe for operation.
2.5
Riding in Low Light Conditions
In low light conditions at night, dawn, dusk or during adverse weather conditions such as
fog, the visibility of cyclists is dramatically reduced
WARNING! Never ride a bicycle in low light conditions without appropriate front and rear
lights fitted and “on” (illuminated) that meet or exceed the national standards of the
country in which it is being ridden.
We recommend that you consult the relevant national safety organization or a reputable
cycle dealer on what the minimum recommended lighting requirements are in your
particular country or region.
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
We also recommend to wear bright, reflective clothing such as reflective vests, leg and arm
bands
2.5
Stopping the CARBON SUV E-BIKE
The CARBON SUV E-BIKE is equipped with front and rear hydraulic disk brakes, operated
by two levers on the handlebars (shown). Before riding, it is important to familiarize
yourself with which brake lever operates the front brake and which operates the rear
brake. Proper use of your brakes will slow and bring your CARBON SUV E-BIKE to a safe
and controlled stop.
WARNING! To slow or stop the CARBON SUV E-BIKE in normal operation, apply the brakes
appropriately. In the event that an emergency stop is required, apply the brakes
appropriately and in a safe and controlled manner until you have brought the CARBON SUV
E-BIKE to a complete stop. Do not release the brakes until it is safe to do so.
Action on brake could block the wheel so the rider must be ready at all times. Reduce
speed dramatically if street condition could make the blocking of wheel easy, in order to
help slow or stop the CARBON SUV E-BIKE in a controlled manner.
Aggressive use of the brakes may cause your CARBON SUV E-BIKE to skid, potentially
resulting in loss of control. Anticipate your need to stop and slow using appropriate
pressure on the brake levers.
2.7
Riding in Wet, Cold or Icy Conditions
Under wet, cold or icy conditions, the stopping power of your brakes and tires (as well as
the brakes of other vehicles sharing the road) is dramatically reduced. This makes it harder
to control speed and easier to lose control. It also makes skidding during turning more
likely. Ride more slowly and cautiously when in wet weather. If it is cold, near or below the
temperature when water freezes, be careful of ice on the roads which could be dangerous.
WARNING! Wet or icy conditions impair traction, braking and visibility, both for the cyclist
and for other vehicles sharing the road. The risk of an accident is dramatically increased in
wet conditions
To make sure that you can slow down and stop safely in wet conditions, ride more slowly
and apply your brakes more gradually than you would under normal, dry conditions, taking
care to anticipate your need to stop and slow to avoid any aggressive use of the brakes.
We do not recommend riding in heavy rain or standing water, but we do understand that
this is not always avoidable. If your CARBON SUV E-BIKE gets wet, clean and dry it within
10 minutes of heavy wet weather riding. See 7.2 Cleaning and Preventing Corrosion for
more information.
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
2.8
Riding in windy conditions
You must consider that the dimension and the geometry of the CARBON SUV E-BIKE is not
common. It is important to become accustomed to the different feeling of ride.
In windy conditions, especially lateral wind, due the great dimension of the bike, wind
action can be very effective and deviate the bike from its line or induct shacking vibration.
Please take note and be ready to prevent and take the necessary action to keep the bike in
its line and reduce the speed to under 15 km/h ( 9 mile/h).
Always keep both hands on handlebar in windy conditions.
WARNING! Windy conditions modify the behavior of the CARBON SUV E-BIKE. The risk of
an accident due the lost of control of the E-bike is dramatically increased, so the speed
must be reduced to under 15 km/h (9 mile/h) for the safety of both the rider and the
cyclist as well as for the other vehicles sharing the road
2.9
Riding in high traffic conditions with trucks
Please take note that big trucks move a great volume of air and when they overtake a
bicycle rider they produce an effect of strong lateral wind.
If possible please avoid riding in this road condition if not strictly necessary and in case,
apply the instructions of “riding in windy conditions.”
Apply the instruction of “riding in windy conditions” any time a truck is going to overtake.
2.10 Limited Life Span
WARNING! Bicycles have a limited life span for safe operation and are not indestructible
As with all mechanical components, bicycle components are subject to wear and high
stresses. Different materials and components may react to wear, stress or fatigue in
different ways. Excessive wear and high stress of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE may be
hazardous.
The expected life span of a CARBON SUV E-BIKE or its components will vary with the
material and construction of the frame and components, the maintenance received over
its life and the type and amount of use. Any unusual or abusive riding style, such as offroad cycling, competitive riding, stunt cycling, jumping or riding at excessive speed and
braking hard, can accelerate the wear and fatigue of components to the extent where
premature and sudden failure of a component may occur without warning and the risk of
injury is increased.
Any form of crack, scratch or change of coloring in highly stressed areas indicate that the
life of the component has been reached and you should replace it before any further use is
made.
See Section 7.5 Checking for Cracking and Fatigue Failures for parts of the CARBON SUV EBIKE that require visual inspection from time to time.
A blow to your CARBON SUV E-BIKE, either major or minor, can cause stress and fatigue on
the CARBON SUV E-BIKE and its components or compromise the integrity of the electronics,
including the battery, electronic controller, motor drive system or wiring. In the event of an
accident and if safe to do so, put your battery into sleep mode. (see Section 5.3.4.) Check
for visual damage before continuing to ride the CARBON SUV E-BIKE. If the CARBON SUV E-
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
BIKE has sustained damage other than light cosmetic scratches such as dented, cracked,
bent or misaligned components, do not ride your CARBON SUV E-BIKE until it has been
inspected by an authorized CARBON SUV E-BIKE service center. If in doubt about the
inspection of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE, contact techsupport@motoparilla.it
2.11 First Ride
WARNING! First familiarize yourself with the modes of operation, controls and
performance of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE before venturing onto busy streets.
We strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself with your new CARBON SUV EBIKE by first riding it in a controlled environment, away from potential hazards such as
moving traffic and obstacles. It is important to become familiar with the modes of
operation, controls, brakes and the different performance features inherent to the
electric motor.
WARNING! Your braking efficiency will increase during the first few rides as your brake
disks and pads “bed in”. To accelerate the increase in braking performance, perform a
number of controlled stops under hard braking. Please do that by following the
instructions in 2.6 carefully.
2.12 Steering radius
Your CARBON SUV E-BIKE is very big and long which is what make it cool and unique. The
steering radius is usually bigger than an ordinary bicycle. It is therefore necessary to
become accustomed to the steering radius of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE before riding on
main roads. It is advisable to practise different turning conditions and bear in mind the
personal turning performance of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE before reaching a turning where
the reduction of speed according to the turning radius, is requested
WARNING! If speed is not reduced or a wrong calculation of the turning is made, the rider
could lose the riding line, the position in the lane or even cross over to the opposite lane,
all of which could have dramatically dangerous consequences. Therefore, for the safety of
both the rider and cyclist and for other vehicles sharing the road, speed must always be
reduced before a turning and in relation to the radius requested

5.3
CARBON SUV E-BIKE Lithium Battery: Care and Maintenance
Batteries do not last forever. As with lithium-ion batteries found in most battery-powered
products, the CARBON SUV E-BIKE lithium-ion battery will slowly deteriorate over time.
Lithium-ion batteries begin to degrade from the point of manufacturer due to a chemical
reaction that gradually causes the internal impedance of the cells to increase which, in
time, reduces the ability of the battery to deliver its charge. For this reason, a new battery
will always perform better than one of six months old.
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
To maximize the potential lifespan of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE battery, follow these
guidelines:
 Before first use, ensure that your battery is fully charged.
 The charge indicator on the dashboard and the capacity of the battery pack may vary
during initial usage. After few discharge and charge cycles, the battery and fuel
indicators will become more consistent.
 Your battery will go into over discharge protection mode if it is discharged to a
critically low level. Recharge your battery as soon as possible after it becomes fully
discharged. A battery will be permanently damaged if left for an extended length of
time in a fully discharged state.
 If possible avoid the full discharge of the battery and recharge whenever possible to
maintain the battery charge level.
 Heat accelerates the degradation of batteries. Avoid operating or storing the
battery in high temperatures when possible.
 Once your battery displays less than two 2 lines, charge your battery within 48
hours. Place the battery on charge, and when the charge is complete, press the OFF
button. Do not allow a nearly depleted battery to be unused for more than one
month. The battery will slowly discharge until it becomes fully discharged, and this
will permanently damage the battery cells.
 Once your battery displays show that battery is empty or the e-bike stop to work
because undercharges of battery cut off the power, don’t switch on again the
battery and void to use it: the start and stop can rest the undercharge protection
level of BMS that can be unable to protect the battery and damage irremediably the
battery himself.
When you are not using the CARBON SUV E-BIKE, we strongly recommend that you put the
battery into OFF Mode. See 5.2.4 Returning the Battery to OFF Mode, for more
information. Do not leave the battery on charge. When fully charged, disconnect the
charger and return the battery to OFF Mode.
5.4

Knowing the NUVINCI GERA HUB
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
Your CARBON SUV E-BIKE is equipped with NUVINCI N380 GEAR HUB. Nuvinci is a CVT GEAR
HUB.
It is strongly recommended to visit the NUVINCI web site and read carefully all the
instruction and safe manuals.
http://www.nuvincicycling.com/en/service/Service-FAQ.html
http://www.nuvincicycling.com/en/service/downloads.html
WARNING! CVT gear hub is different compared to traditional mechanical shifting.
Familiarize yourself with upshifting and downshifting before riding on busy roads or in
traffic.
Don’t operate the gear shift when you are pedaling or when motor is working: under torque
the gear shift can’t operate on CVT and will stress the Bowden cable reducing its life span
6.3
Knowing the DNM shock absorber
Your CARBON SUV E-BIKE standard version is equipped with DNM air pressure shock
absorber.
It is strongly recommended to read carefully all the instruction and safe manuals supplied
with the e-bike.
6.4
Riding Modes
You can operate your CARBON SUV E-BIKE at different power levels to suit your personal
riding style and the road condition.
CARBON SUV E-BIKE has 9 levels of power assistance to choose from, that follow different
levels of speed and power from the motor.
The motor will start when you start to move the pedals in relation to the gear shift
position. In low gear the motor will start proceeding into high gear shift.
CARBON SUV E-BIKE can also be equipped with throttle lever overcrossing the pedal action.
With throttle lever the bike can start also from zero speed.
Your CARBON SUV E-BIKE is supplied without throttle lever assembled. Before to fit the
throttle lever and use the bike in such mode be sure that this mode is legal within the
boundaries the territory in which you are riding.
WARNING! Select a riding mode which is legal in the country of use. If in doubt, consult your
local transport authority. 250W meet EN 15194 which has been adopted by most countries
within the European Union and with 250W throttle lever use is forbidden.
In the European Union and in other countries and in some States of USA if forbidden also use
in public road e-bike with a power of more then 250W. If your CARBON SUV E-BIKE has a
bigger power then 250W pls before use control if is legal or not. MOTO PARILLA is disclaimed
of any responsibility for use CARBON SUV E-BIKE not in conformity with law of the territory.

6.5
Some suggestion how to better use your CARBON SUV E-BIKE
The CARBON SUV E-BIKE is designed for the simultaneous use of pedaling and motor.
Using the motor only (where allowed by law) is a second mode option.
To increase the life of all mechanical components, a lesser stress on battery and a more
healthy use for the rider, we recommend the use of the CARBON SUV E-BIKE as much as
possible using both pedals and motor at the same time, even where only the motor use is
allowed by the law.
Range of battery and speed is difficult to define exactly because different factor will
contribute in the same time, for example, but not only: power level, rider weight (including
clothing and luggage), tire pressure, terrain, surface texture, wind conditions and of
course, how much pedal input the rider is providing.
Of course using sole motor and/or higher top level power will have a negative effect on the
range of your battery.
By other side low power level and strong pedaling from rider will ensure the best possible
range.
Moto Parilla – CARBON SUV E-BIKE
To get the best out of your CARBON SUV E-BIKE, read carefully the following points:
1. Pedalling: We recommend that for the best performance you continue to pedal at
all times, especially during start operation where the current rate from battery is
maximum.
2. Tyres: before any ride check that the tires are correctly inflated.
3. Rider weight: Never exceed the recommended weight, but if possible use the
CARBON SUV E-BIKE with the least weight possible. Used with max load, the CARBON
SUV E-BIKE will reduce the battery range, will also affect your CARBON SUV E-BIKE’s
handling and will increase the stress on the gearbox and motor, potentially reducing
the service life of the product.
4. Riding style: on irregular road (for example: poor road surfaces, speed bumps,
potholes, etc.) pls adapt your riding style to avoid any useless extra stress to the
bike, potentially reducing the service life of the product.
WARNING! Never use the motor when passing over obstacles such as ruts in the road or
speed bumps, etc. Doing so will increase the stresses on the drive components and will
reduce the service life of the product, possibly invalidating your warranty.
5. Brake use: please follow the instructions listed in point 2.6. If not necessary,
avoid strong braking so as to increase the service life of the pads. If speed is
reduced in time of breaking unnecessarily the battery life will be increased and
riding will be safer.
6. Imperfect weather conditions: the CARBON SUV E-BIKE has been tested in all
weather condition. However, in case of rain, ice, wet road and wind, please follow
the instructions in the present manual, with extreme care.
7.
Owner manual and wanrranty: pls follow the instructions on this manual, visit our
web site and register your bike.
8.
Pre use control and service: before using your CARBON SUV E-BIKE please follow the
instructions in the present manual with extreme care.
9.
Storage and cleaning: when storing your CARBON SUV E-BIKE please take care to
put the battery pack in OFF-mode. Use your CARBON SUV E-BIKE for some rides also
during winter storage: long inactivity of battery can reduce the life span. When
cleaning the CARBON SUV E-BIKE be sure the battery has been removed and please
avoid the use of pressure water, aggressive cleaner or scratching material. Dry
carefully before storage and always before to reinstalling of battery pack.
10. Parking: if possible do not park your CARBON SUV E-BIKE in hot sunny areas for a
long time. In sunny areas, all parts of the bike can easily reach very high
temperatures. High temperatures can damage the battery, display and reduce the
life of the carbon fiber.
WARNING! In sunshine, both the temperature of the bike as well as the aluminum parts,
can reach high temperatures. Please note and take all precautions to avoid any injuries or
