Electric bikes are the biggest adoption of green transportation of the 21st century. You must be wondering that 'cycling is already green,' so why is there so much hype about e-bikes? Well, electric bikes are not just environmentally friendly, but they also provide several other benefits that make an e-bike one of the best solutions for urban commuting.
Along with comparing e-bikes with e-bikes and ordinary bicycles, you must also compare them with other types of transportations like a car, motorcycle, moped, etc. Think about an electric cycle in place of petrol scooters or ordinary bicycles. Similar to scooters, e-bikes can also travel up to 25 to 45 km per hour. However, scooters run on petrol which is more expensive than charging an electric bike. You can easily ride your e-bike around 30 to 80 km on a single charge. You may think that normal bicycles don't even require charging to ride, but they are much slower than e-bikes. You can't rely on normal bicycles if you have to reach your destination quicker and in better shape.
Cut Back Expenses
Electric bikes are more economical than fuel-powered motorcycles and cars and cheaper than electric vehicles. You may think that they are more costly than ordinary bicycles, but we have already explained why e-bikes are more suitable than regular bicycles, especially when you have to reach the destination on time.
Investing in an electric bike can save you more in the long run. Diesel and petrol are costly in most countries, and their occasional price surges can significantly impact your budget. After charging the battery of your electric bike, you can ride it for around 50 miles depending on the level of assistance you use. You can also consider removing the battery and riding the e-bike like an ordinary bicycle.
An electric bike will also help you save money in other ways because you don't have to pay road tax for riding an electric bike in most countries. Furthermore, many countries don't even require insurance to ride an electric bike. So overall, it is fair to conclude that riding an electric bike is an economical option from all aspects.
