Stuttgart-based electric bike maker Sol Motor’s Pocket Rocket looks like an e-bike, but it is something new and unusual. It’s faster than electric bikes, but not quite a moped. It’s also not fast enough to be an electric motorcycle.
If you need to get around the city and don’t want to worry about parking, gasoline or traffic, then biking is a great way to get around. But if you have a long distance to travel, lots of uphill stretches or just don’t want to be all sweaty when you get to the office, an E-bike is an even better alternative.
I’ve never been a fan of electric bikes, but I can see a use for them, especially for people who need the extra help to get a move on. Most electric bikes are also a bit bulky, making them less than convenient for everyday use.
