What is the difference between a speed bike and an electric bike?
The two gears look very similar, but there are differences in size.
We see more and more “electric” bikes in our cities, they circulate on cycle paths and weave their way between cars.
But it is necessary to make the distinction between the different models proposed. On our cycle paths we must only come across, according to the regulations, electrically assisted bicycles limited to 25 km/h. The particularity of these machines is that the motor stops when the cyclist stops pedaling.
The speed bike is much faster with a maximum speed of 45km/h. Unlike an e-bike, the motor runs continuously. These bikes are often used to cover longer distances.
Given its power, the regulations oblige users to wear an approved helmet and to register the machine.
