Default Re: ECO Question - Electric vs Gas

Gas is more noisy, less dependable, and a headache to deal with.

With that said, I have a 66cc engine, and you can't give me a E-bike. I rode them before. For flat surfaces, they are pretty good. They need to be charged, and they are very quiet. You can get hit very quickly because people will not hear you zip up and down the street.

I LOVE my china girl engine. It constantly need tinkering with, always needs adjusting, but that's the fun.

And you also need to think, the battery in that E-bike. If it dies, it's gonna cost an arm and a leg to change. And when you charge it, where does that electicity come from? It's coming from somewhere.

Go with a motor. It's more fun...
