The bike is lightweight at only 45 kilograms and consists of a 2kW electronic brushless, gearless drive that is attached to the rear wheel. Elmoto HR-2 has a charge range of 43 miles, capable of top speeds up to 28mph. The cost of fuel in Europe is a big problem and the demand for scooters is always high. Having the ELMOTO HR-2 will allow users to commute cost efficiently without having to pay for fuel and without contributing to pollution all over the city. Electric bikes which have pedals, don’t require the rider to have a license, but the governments tops their speed at 20 miles per hour. You can use the pedals to get over that cap. But bikes with no pedals, like this ELMOTO, does require a motorcycle license and can go at any speed it wants.
