Your bike will still shift gears, but only when you're pedaling. The motor is independent of the pedaling drivetrain unless you use an SBP shift kit or the likes. A shift kit is a jackshaft that transfers the engine power over the the pedaling drive train in which case you can then shift gears using the motor as well.
