I want to show you today what's the benefit of buying the electric version of the EVRYJourney and why I think you should do it.
Here are both models of the EVRYJourney, and both in the mint green color. This is obviously our step-through frame. Now, at first glance, there's not a big difference between the two bikes. To the naked eye, it might be hard to even distinguish which bike is electric and which bike is non-electric. Now, obviously, on this one you have a battery, but when you look at the bikes, hard to pick up and tell where the actual motor is.
The number one benefit or reason why I would like the idea of upgrading to the electric version is just way more versatility. With the electric version, the miles that you'll be able to cover become vastly greater. Let's say that you're a rider and under your own power, you can only ride confidently 10 miles there and back. By having the motor and the battery power, you could add another 10, 20, 30 miles to your rides. The benefit's obviously added exercise.
A lot of people think that just because you have a motor you're not going to get exercise, not true. You can use the motor as you see fit. What it can do for you is if you normally ride 10 miles on your standard version, if you have the motor and the electric version, you could try to go 20 miles even without using the motor. Because in the back of your mind, you know to take that trip home you can use the power, use the motor, and if your legs are completely shot at that point, use the throttle and let the bike do the work. That's a huge benefit. Having that motor, not only do you get the pedal assist, but you also get the throttle, which ultimately can give you the confidence to take longer rides. In addition to that, the terrain you're riding on can expand greatly.
Let's say that you have the EVRYJourney bike and there's been some rides you want to do on certain hills, things like that, but you've had fear around either not being able to tackle that hill, get all the way up that hill, so you shy away from doing that route. Well, if you add the motor, this can allow you, like I said before, to have the confidence to tackle that hill.
Let's say you start the hill under your own power. You get a little bit into it and then you lose momentum, boom, kick on the motor. Either use the pedal assist and let it get you up the hill, or use the throttle, just push that and go up the hill. If you want to see a better demonstration on how to ride an e-bike uphill, you can go to our channel here. I've actually done a video showing how easy it is to get up hills with an electric bike.
Number one benefit, ride longer, more exercise, just generally enjoy the outdoors more. Number two, tackle terrains and routes that you never thought you could tackle before with confidence. In addition to that, that's going to allow you to do more, like tow more, carry more, run more errands. Obviously, with the motor, you're going to have more weight, but on your regular bike, if you're not comfortable adding things in a basket or putting pannier bags on the back of a bag on the front and weighing it down with groceries or other things because you're fearful that you can't pedal the bike under your own power with the added weight, the motor can give you that power. You can just do more things with the bike. You can tow children on the back easier. You can pick up groceries, load them on the bike, or just run any other errands where your bike now can become a more versatile mode of transportation that you can actually transport items.
You can see you still have the rear rack, so you can put a rear bag back here. You can put a rear basket back here. You can put a front basket up here. You can accessorize the electric bike version the same way that you can accessorize the standard bike version to increase carrying capacity, put a water bottle holder on there, essentially whatever you see fit. Now, in addition to that, I want to talk about the weight of these two bikes. I think one thing people may say is, "Oh, but this bike's heavier, so maybe that's going to bog me down. It's going to be harder to ride, less efficient."
Now, the electric bike will be a little bit heavier. You obviously have the motor in the back and this battery, which weighs about eight pounds. You're adding about, let's say, 15 pounds approximately to the electric version versus the standard version. When you're riding on flat ground, you're not even going to notice the difference between the two. I'll do a quick demo here at the end. I'll show you when I ride it normally and I put it into the same gears.
For me, it feels about the same, but with the motor assistance, if you should need to put it into level one on the pedal assist, that can make up the difference of the added weight of the bike. You really will not feel any strain on your legs or any difference between riding the electric bike and the standard bike. I personally feel like the benefits of the electric bike version far outweigh the negatives. If from a budget standpoint it makes sense for you, I think there are huge benefits to upgrading to the electric bike version, because lastly, you can ride this bike like a normal bike. This bike can do everything this bike can do, but this bike cannot do everything this bike can do.
What I mean by that, you can ride this bike with the motor completely turned off. If you choose no throttle, no pedal assist, totally up to you. At which point, this is functioning like a normal standard non-electrical bike. This bike only has one mode, which is non-electrical traditional bike. Again, you're getting so much more versatility and the potential is so much greater with the electric bike. Now, I know what you're thinking too. There's only so much capacity in the battery. You can buy extra batteries. It's very simple on these to take the battery out. You can swap it, carry an extra battery in a backpack, and you could give yourself potentially up to basically 30 to 50 miles per battery. Carrying an extra battery, you could go 60 to 100 miles on a single charge.
Actually, the last benefit I want to say is speed. With the electric version, this is going to hit a top speed in a pedal-assist mode of 28 miles an hour. With full throttle in the 500 wat, which is what we have here, you're going to have a top speed of 20 miles an hour. Now, the benefit goes back to all of a sudden you've turned this into a practical mode of transportation. If you can get around on your bike going 20 miles an hour with ease with the throttle, you can get places quicker and this becomes more practical. Meaning, if you're a casual rider when you ride without electricity and maybe top speed for you personally is, let's say, 11 miles an hour, 12 miles an hour, it's not practical for you to ride that places because it may take you too long to get there. Imagine being able to double, if not triple, your speed.
If your top speed is 10 miles an hour under your own power, if you use that pedal-assist you could potentially be hitting 28 miles an hour, or if you just use the throttle, you can hit 20 miles an hour with ease guaranteed, don't pedal at all. Now you've gone from 10 miles an hour as your top speed to 20 miles an hour. You might think to yourself, well, if I can do my bike and get there and ride 20 miles an hour and get to the gym in eight minutes, now I may do that. But before, if it's going to take you 16, 20 minutes, it might not be practical. The practical use cases of your bike expand as you upgrade to the electric version. It just becomes a more useful, beneficial mode of transportation on many levels. Now, let me just show you quickly when both of these bikes are used with non-electricity, how everything is pretty much the same.
Now, and you'll see too, the frames are identical. Step through, everything. Nothing is different. Now, this is the standard bike. Obviously, I just push off and I'm off and riding. Now we know that that's going to be simple and easy, but let me show you this. Now, hopefully, you can tell at home that I'm not exerting any more energy, put the kickstand up, pedal down and I'm off. There's no power, no electricity. The beauty really is, is that you still have the option of riding without electricity and you will barely even notice, I promise, that there's a motor and a battery. Lastly, what I actually forgot to say, is if you do want to use this as a non-electric and reduce the weight to get it closer to resembling the standard version, all you do? Take the battery out and leave it at home. Now you've reduced the weight by eight pounds.
You're still about an eight-pound differential between the two, but it's not going to be very noticeable.
