eGo Vehicles: Helio

A great concept: part bike, part scooter. Good engineering for a good price.Rating 2007: GoodPrice: 1,990 Euros
 

 
The Helio is the consistent e-bike in the test. It no long has pedals but a bigger battery and a stronger motor. It indicates a development away from coupled muscle and motor power as found in a pedelec. Despite high average speed and rapid acceleration, the felt speed was considerably slower than with pedelecs- added pedaling clearly boosts felt speed. With Helio the motor is controlled with a throttle, allowing smooth accelerationand deceleration. The 20km/h version (without helmet obligation) was also in the test. This e-bike is also available in the 25 or 37km/h version.
