The electric bike market in India has been growing a very faster space. You make find new launch if e-bike almost every month. After all electric bikes are far cheaper when it comes to the per kilometer cost of running. The question is "Are electric bikes are faster too?". Let's find out the answer in this blog.
Please note that the speed of electric bikes depends on many factors. Some of the main factors that affect the speed of the e-bikes are-
Motor power- The motor with higher kilowatt power is expected to give you more speed.
Battery power - A higher kilowatt battery boosts the motor more. Hence It will give you better speed.
Weight of bike- It is common sense. A lighter bike is the faster bike. Provided the motor power is also high.
Air Pressure- Any bike will be more after if the air pressure is high.
Load on the bike- The effect of this factor is similar to the effect of the weight of the bike. If there is more load the speed is expected to be low. Or at least the bike will take a comparatively longer time to reach top speed.
Some other external factors always affect the performance of any bike. These are wind speed, road conditions, driving technique & terrain.
