The speed bike stands out for its power
The difference between the electric bike and the speed bike is in the power of their motor.
With the naked eye, it is not easy to differentiate them because their shape is quite similar, but the speed of the electric bike is limited to 25km/h while the speed bike can reach 45km/h. This is due to the power of the motor which is 250W for one against 500W for the second.
Another difference is that with the speed bike, it is no longer necessary to pedal continuously to move forward, unlike the electrically assisted bike, where stopping pedaling causes the motor to stop.
Still underdeveloped in France, in 2021, just over 1000 speed bikes were registered in France.
