What Is E-Bike?
Electric bike is typically a bicycle with motor in it. It is also referred to as an e-bike or electric scooter. The eclectic bike can reach speeds up to 24-34km/hr (15 to 20 miles /hour) depending on the motor and laws of the country. Many countries have law restrictions against speedy e-bikes. Electric scooters are substantially cheaper than regular motorcycles. They are also a lot cheaper to maintain and to drive.
E-bikes are battery operated and do not require any fuel, which makes them very eco friendly and affordable to drive. In many countries all over the world electric bikes are primary source of transportation for people.
No Drivers Licence Required
Electric bikes fall into a different category of vehicles than motorcycles. In countries like Canada and United States e-bikes are treated like bicycle (they are even allowed in bicycle lanes) which mean that the rider doesn’t need insurance or drivers license to ride one. There could be some age and license restrictions depending on the State or the Province. All States and/or Provinces require riders to wear a helmet for safety purposes.
No insurance and drivers licence policy makes electric bikes a perfect transportation especially in high traffic areas. Because riders can freely drive in bicycle they will never be caught in traffic again.
E-Bikes are Perfect for Urban Areas
Electric scooters are battery operated which makes them very ecologically friendly and affordable. With gas price rising and global warming around the corner e-bikes make great transportation alternative. They are easy to operate, safe and most important of all don’t require gasoline. They are smaller and lighter than average motorcycle which makes them perfect for urban areas.
E-bikes are very mobile and lightweight. They are easy to maintain and to store. Key lock feature (which is standard in most of the electric bikes) protects e-bike from theft.
Millions of people around the world already switched to electric scooters as their primary way of transportation.
