Are you excited by the electric transport revolution, and fed up with getting stuck in traffic jams? Not keen on cycling, even with assisted pedalling? Can't afford an electric car as a second vehicle? Well there is another option: the e-motorcycle/moped.
We road-tested 7 models to find out how they stack up.
Each bike was ridden on a route around Wellington by our test rider for 30-40 minutes, which included riding though central-city traffic, on suburban roads and up steep hills. We’ve not tried to produce full road tests of the bikes, but instead offer an insight into how well each bike performs in its intended urban environment.
