The acclimation phenomenon is interesting to note, the faster you can go often leads to going that much faster as a matter of course, then you get used to it and need to be able to go faster still to feel as if you're going fast at all...
When I made the transition from gasbike to a basic ebike, I thought I would despair at the significant loss of speed, the ebike being 25-30% slower than my average gasbike... and at first I did - with time my perspective shifted and now once again "24 to 28mph" seems like blazed lighting, I just rip the turns harder if I feel a need for a "rush" lol
