How Fast Do Electric Bikes Go?

Pedal assist motor

If you are pedaling, you can go as fast as you are able to pedal it. However, most bikes stop providing electric assist while pedaling at 20 mph (Class 1 and Class 2 ebikes). Some electric bikes will provide assist going at speeds up to about 28 mph (=45 kilometers per hour – Class 3 ebikes). Gazelle only makes class 1 and class 3 bikes.
