Why Would You Buy An Electric Moped Bike?

Electric bikes certainly serve their purpose, but an electric moped bike is the closest one can get to a total car replacement. These bikes offer optimal power, often containing motors between 750W and 1500W. This allows riders to reach top speeds between 20 and 60 mph on average while enjoying a nice 45+ mile riding range. To accommodate these speeds, most electric moped bikes offer upfront and rear suspension that will allow you to take on moderately-sized bumps with ease.

Designed with comfort and usability in mind, electric moped bikes also offer up comfortable seats, a giant headlight, and a large capacity battery. These bikes are ideal for anyone who wants a bike with premium power and comfort that can easily replace a traditional electric commuter bike or even a small car. With a range of price points, these electric moped bikes offer head-turning style and electrifying features for a ride that is unlike any other.

Electric mopeds are also a good option for families with children, as there are accessories that allow for up to two children to come along for the ride. There are also accessories that make it easy to transport groceries, packages, and other essential items that would otherwise require a car.

Electric Moped Bikes and Commuting

For anyone looking to commute in a suburban or urban area, an electric moped bike is pretty much as good as it gets. As mentioned above, these bikes tend to be street legal in most states and can reach top speeds between 20 to 60 mph with a range that can exceed 40 miles. This makes it an ideal way to navigate a tricky commute without compromising speed, power, or the potential to get somewhere as fast as you could in a small car. Keep in mind, that since electric moped bikes tend to have pedals, they do not require a license for use. This is different from a traditional moped, which does not have pedals and does require a license for use.

Additionally, electric moped bikes tend to boast headlights, LED control panels, and road-ready tires (specifically Kenda brand) that can tackle tough terrain and weather conditions. Moreover, electric moped bikes will generally come equipped with handy racks for carrying all of your things. The only real downside of commuting with an electric moped bike is storing/parking. Unlike a traditional electric bike, you may not be able to park your moped at a bike lock. You may also be restricted from using the moped on sidewalks or in parks in certain jurisdictions.

When Does an Electric Bike Become a Moped

Both electric bikes and electric moped bikes are powered by electricity and provide an economical means of transportation. However, when does an electric bike become a moped? For the most part, electric bikes and electric moped bikes have plenty of similarities. However, an electric bike becomes a moped when it can use pedal assistance to boost riders above 28 mph with no throttle.

That is when an e-bike becomes a class 3 e-bike which is a moped. Since many mopeds can reach speeds well over 30 mph (and some up to 60) they are not in the same class as a standard electric e-bike. Because of this, many states require different restrictions when it comes to mopeds. While most won’t require licensing, registration, or insurance, a few will require you to at least register the moped.

Final Thoughts

Electric moped bikes are an inviting prospect for anyone looking for a quicker means to commute with an e-bike style mode of transportation. With lightning-fast top speeds and ranges well over 45 miles, these are ideal for anyone looking for an alternative to other modes of transportation.
