The thing that I love most about electric bikes is the fact that it looses its lankiness of a regular bike and embraces the maturity of a motorcycle, qualifying to be a good balance between the two. It’s not the best tool for hardcore cyclists who’re looking to shape up, but great for those who love the look of a bike, but are keen to lose the gears. M-1 ebike from Anaheim-based Marrs cycles has specs closest to a typical Harley Davidson, pretty cool, aye? These guys are built to order, according to customer requirements. The three-phase brushless rear hub motors use rechargeable lithium batteries packs for a charge. The smallest pack (20 amp hours) allows a 79 kg rider to go up to 32km, in one charge without pedaling.
The top motorized speed of M-1 is 20 mph, which is the maximum allowed by U.S to retain the tag of an electric bike. M-1 weighs in at around 140 pounds and are available in a number of frame colors and wood veneer types. The frames on this thing are fabricated from 4130 chromoly steel, while rest of the components are a mixture of high-end motorcycle, bicycle and custom-made parts. The price on this electric bike is about $7,000.
