The Big Difference:
Electric Bikes let You get Fit
Both a Moped and Electric Scooter provide economical transportation, as does an Electric bike. The biggest difference is that an electric bicycle provides exercise while riding. The electric bike will allow you to get in better health while riding, a moped will not. In addition, mopeds require insurance and a driver’s license in most states, an electric bicycle does not.
Advantages of an Electric Bike
The advantage an electric bicycle has over a motorcycle is similar to advantages over a moped. The electric bicycle gives the rider easy exercise and improves their health. A motorcycle can be faster and is better suited for riding on freeways, where the speeds are higher.
Electric Bicycles are Bicycles!
Federal laws makes an electric bicycle a bicycle for the vehicle code. Each state and municipality may have different regulations, but in general an electric bicycle can go anywhere a bicycle can go. Many electric bicycles are configured on mountain bike frames and are suitable for off road use (check with your local government to see if the electric mountain bike is allowed on your trials).
