eGO electric bike has passed European Whole Vehicle
Type Approval so is classed as a moped in the UK. It
is one of the few electric vehicles to be equipped with
full regenerative braking, so when you roll off the
throttle some charge is put back in to the battery.
Riding the eGO is easy and fun, simply twist the throttle
and away you go. There are two settings on the key ignition.
The first is "go Far" which limits the speed to 17 mph
with a realistic full throttle range of 15 to 20 miles.
The other position is "go Fast" which gives rapid acceleration,
excellent hill climbing and a top speed of 23 mph. The
realistic range at full throttle is 10 to 15 miles.
In either of these modes the range can be increased
by not using full throttle all the time.
have two of these as old, none runners, if you fancy
a project they can both be yours for £399 the
