True both come with the same engine, but don't be tempted with the
$50 cheaper price.
Be warned that the Bikeberry kit has the old style Hoot gearbox on it.
There is no pic on Bikeberrys add of the "5G" gearbox.

The Grubee 4G is a MUCH superior gearbox to the Hoot although the
one from has the 4 to 1 gearbox with the problematic one

Buy the original 5 to 1 4G gearbox with the kit from

Here is what you actually get from Bikeberry as the "5G" kit
