Electric Bikes: Why They Are Great For Our Environment!

Jul 16, 2008
The electric car is fast gaining ground and for good reason. Not only does this car look trendy but it also contributes in its own small way to save our environment. However, if you thought the buck stops there think again. The electric bike is even more eco friendly and here are some reasons why!

Great efficiency
The battery of an electric bike has a shelf life spanning one or two years. With 300 charging sessions the battery can run across 15000 kilometers. The bike's blade provides horsepower. This is as powerful as the power produced by a regular 250 4-stroke motor. The blade continues to run silently while delivering exceptional performance. Depending on the type of ride the blade controls can be adjusted. The weight of an electric bike is also much lesser as compared to a regular bike. This again works to the user's advantage.

Big dividends
Many people refrain from purchasing an electric motorcycle because they are daunted by the high costs. However, this is just an initial setback. When considered over a long term perspective electric motorcycles work out far cheaper than their gasoline counterparts. When your bike runs on electricity the fuel costs are just 1/10th of what it would be on a gasoline bike!

Zero emissions
The primary advantage of an electric motorcycle is the fact that there are virtually no gaseous emissions. Besides, these bikes operate on silent mode which means you are in a way helping to reduce noise pollution! The advantage with an electric motorcycle is that you can afford to do away with gas stations altogether. All that is needed is a couple of hours of charging everyday and your bike's batteries are good to go!

Low maintenance
If you love a bike that provides high service without you having to spend too much time on maintenance then the electric bike is your answer. You do not need to keep changing the oil as you would in case of a gasoline run bike. Plus since your bike runs on electricity instead of oil there is less residue build up on the bike. That means a lesser need for regular washing and cleaning.

Fun and different!
The beauty of electric bikes is that they offer the consumer a very different riding experience. We all have ridden a gasoline bike at some point of our lives. However, an electric run bike is a different story altogether. The thrill of seeing your bike run for hours without the need for any fuel is a powerful impetus to get an electric bike! Plus you obviously end up saving a lot since you will not be spending precious money on fuel. This is a win-win situation and you will also be doing your own bit to conserve our environment.

So if you are looking for a bike that is high on efficiency, low on costs and helps save the environment the electric bike is the only answer!
