Scooters vs Electric Bikes
Mopeds and scooters are fantastic. There is a real sense of freedom about zipping around the town or city on scooter, with the wind on your face and the hum of the engine in your ears. But scooters are under attack.
Yes, you heard it right. Lightweight, electric powered bikes are threatening the hallowed space of the scooter, and as these electric bikes get more powerful, more and more will they encroach on the home territory of the humble scooter.
Why Electric Bikes Are Challenging Scooters –
- They are much lighter than scooters, and are perfect for city dwellers as they can easily be carried up to a second or third floor apartment,
- As they are powered by electric they produce no emissions, and so are much more environmentally-friendly,
- They’re on trend – right now electric bikes are cool. Cool cannot be underestimated.
And so our advice to moped and scooter lovers is to stick to your guns. See the full guide here: Electric Bike Review UK – Best E-Bikes for Commuting in 2018
