An electric or motorized bicycle, sometimes called an e-bike, is a two- or three-wheeled bicycle powered through both pedals and an electric motor. Under the law in most regions, the motor cannot power the bike more at a speed greater than 20 mph.

Typical costs:

  • A basic e-bike typically costs $400-$3,000 or more, depending on engine power, battery life or unique design features. For example, the eZip Trailz Electric Bicycle[1] costs about $400 and has a reported range of 20 miles. At $2,800, the Schwinn Searcher e8[2] can go more than 20 miles on a charge.
  • Folding electric bicycles typically cost $750-$2,000 or more. For example, the e-Moto Traveler 1.0[3] folding bike costs about $1,000 and can travel 25 miles on a charge. The Gepida Bleda folding electric bicycle[4] costs about $2,500, includes fenders and a rear rack, and can go up to 40 miles with an optional second battery.
  • Conversion kits[5] that can turn a normal human-powered bicycle into an e-bike cost about $300-$2,100.

What should be included:
  • An e-bike should include a motor, a motorized hub and a battery.
  • Some bikes include a warranty, typically for one year.
  • A conversion kit should include a motorized wheel, motor and a battery mount with cables. Some also include the battery pack and a charger. The kit also includes a dashboard with speed, distance and charging information. The Electric Bicycle Guide has information on e-bikes and conversion kits
Additional costs:
  • A backup or replacement battery[6] typically costs $200-$700.
  • Some states, including California[7] , require helmets, which typically cost $21-$80.
  • Riders who plan to cycle at night should consider additional front and taillights for $9-$100.
Shopping for an electric bike:
  • Some major bicycle manufactures like Trek[8] , Giant[9] and Schwinn make motor-assisted electric bikes.
  • Electric bikes and conversion kits are available from retailers including Amazon[10] , Target [11] and Walmart[12] .
