Moped-style Electric bikes are around this year as companies are racing to introduce fun-based motorcycles reflective of the craze of the 1980s. The rest sell bikes, a sporty riding position, and even two riders sitting.
Big e-bike companies have been selling new and interesting models for 2020. The best options are now available on the market.
Super73 electric bikes
While not the first in the category, Super73 played a major role in establishing the retro-styled electric minibike craze over the last few years.
Super73 R-Series that offers full suspension, new 5-inch extra-wide tires, 75 mile (120 km) range and a host of other upgrades. Be prepared to pay handsomely for that one, though, with prices ranging from $2,995 to $3,495 for the 28+ mph, 2kW e-bikes.
RadRunner from Rad Power Bikes
Rad Power Bikes is a Seattle-based e-bike company. They presented their first entry in this category of e-bikes late last year with the RadRunner.
The step-through utility bike offers a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h), a 750W rear hub motor, and a range of between 25-45 miles (45-72 km).
The first is the Scrambler series of e-bikes. Juiced offers two versions of the Scrambler, including the Camp Scrambler for off-roaders and the City Scrambler for commuters. They feature similar setups but are optimized for different terrains. Both are priced at $1,599, which is a great deal when you check out the specs.
For that price you get a top speed of 28 mph (45 km/h), a 750W motor, 676Wh battery, spring-suspension fork, 180mm rotor hydraulic disc brakes, 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, and a 1,000 lumen headlight.
ONYX RCR electric moped
With a top speed of 60 mph (96.5 km/h), it can blow away any other e-bike on this list. And with its 5.4kW (7.2 hp) rear hub motor, it’s likely going to be the first off the line as well. The ONYX RCR features front and rear suspension, a moped-style seat, a large headlight with vintage vibes, and an even larger 1.6kWh battery that offers up to 75 miles (120 km) of range.
