The 10 Fastest Electric Bikes

Electric Bike

Electric bicycles – a.k.a. - e-bikes, refer to an upgraded version of traditional bicycles, you know, the kind that is powered by a rider moving the pedals that was first invented in 1817 by the German inventor Karl von Drais.  

While the electric bike industry segment is relatively new – when compared to the overall bike industry – the recent demand experience by the electric bike market has all been to the upside – perhaps positively significantly influenced by any number of reasons –

  • The recent shift in the demand for Electric Vehicles.
  • People looking to reduce their carbon footprint or,
  • Simply by the rising costs of other commuting options, to name just a few.

People of all ages choose to use electric bikes primarily –

  • As a way to enjoy themselves.
  • To reduce the cost or the time it takes to commute.
  • Do low-impact exercise, or
  • Try a new and different bicycle experience.

Electric bikes offer additional benefits like operating with little to no noise and being emissions-free. E-bikes also offer electrical transportation options for those with disabilities or physical limitations, providing independence when there once was none.

However, the need for speed seems to be something more and more people yearn for when it comes to electric motorcycles or bikes. Recent battery technology advancements have allowed e bikes to become more potent than ever -  with some models that now reach high speeds on a highway.

Many of the top high-end electric bikes come with a price tag to match. So, if you are interested in the fastest electric bikes, you will likely need true courage to max out the top speed of these e bikes. However, you will need to be ready to reach deep into your pockets as well.

Lawmakers have also passed regulations requiring the wearing of safety equipment and licensing based on a minimum age and more. The laws vary and will be contingent upon –

  • The jurisdiction governing where you live or ride.
  • Your age.
  • The electric bike you choose to ride.

As a precaution, riders are advised to verify which laws, if any, apply to their specific riding situation to ensure they ride within the legal boundaries.
