9 game-changing new e-bikes for every type of cyclist – Bike Magazine Australia

Booyah, e-bikes! That’s right. We said it. These 9 new pedal-assisted rides are so fun they should be called wheee-bikes! But they’re mad practical, too.

Tern Vektron

This folding model with a Bosch power drive motor is an excellent choice for the storage-deprived. Max assisted speed is 25km/h (as per Australian law), and the rear rack makes it robust enough to carry a few days’ worth of groceries.

Bulls Lacuba Evo E8 Step-Thru

A belt drive and an internally geared hub mean low maintenance for this rack- and fender-equipped commuter. The high-capacity battery hidden in the down tube powers a Brose motor with a claimed range of up to 190km on a single charge. 

Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch

Passengers are no issue for this Bosch-powered, long-tail, e-cargo bike with options to add accessories such as kids’ seating. The aluminium bike has a Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a 20-inch rear wheel for a low, stable centre of gravity.
