Not quite a scooter, nor a motorbike. Is it really cycling? What is an Electric Bike? There is a still a lot of confusion as to how they work and the actual difference between an E-Bike versus a regular bike. In the simplest sense, an Electric bike is a powered bike that will provide extra power when you're pedalling.
Electric bikes have taken Europe by storm and have since made their way into the Australian market. While the category has been around for a while, in recent years they have made huge steps forward in design, battery and motor capacity, and variety, with electric bikes now available for every kind of rider.
