http://electricridereview.com/ecobike/new-york/ A lower end (but hugely popular) electric scooter with pedals. This thing is used extensively by delivery guys in New York City, USA. It has basic pedals and uses a direct drive 350 watt rear hub motor. The battery is a 48 volt 12 amp hour Lead Acid design. The bike costs about $1,000 and has a top speed of 20 miles per hour. There’s no pedal assist mode, just four speed levels activated by a twist throttle.
