Electric bikes are trending in today’s society in popularity and efficiency. The first E-bike came onto the scene in the 1990s. Michael Kutter, from Switzerland, invented a throttle-free E-bike that had pedals that were power controlled.

A few years later, Yamaha arrived with a much similar invention. Gradually, other companies started to catch wind of the invention and modified it.

Such a company was AeroVironment, which in the same decade, went into partnership with GT Bicycles and made one that was known as the GT Charger. It used lead-acid batteries for power, weighed sixty-five pounds, and was pedal-controlled. Many other companies such as Sony, came up with their own version and the list goes on.

Since then, E-bikes have come a long way. There has been a gradual interest in producing E-bikes from different companies, situated all over the world. The market has become competitive and now, there is a vast selection to choose from when it comes to Electronic bikes.

What exactly are Electronic Bikes?

E-bikes are equipped with rechargeable batteries. Unlike the typical bicycle that makes you break into a sweat, they can reach a speed of up to 25 Km per hour. They can even go up to 45 Km per hour in some cases. You still have to do the peddling, but it does not take as much effort as the ordinary bike. This is perfect than having to use the ordinary bike because you get to where you want to go much faster- and less sweaty!

Amazingly, they are energy efficient and don’t require emission inspections. In a nutshell, they are ideal for keeping the air clean at a low cost.

A new bill introduced for Electronic Bikes

There was a new bill that was proposed in the Senate that would initiate 30% credit ($1500) when one buys an E-bike. It was proposed by Brian Schatz and Brian Markey. It was presented as The Electric Bicycle Incentive Kick-start act.
