E-Bikes. Now Triumph Motorcycles are doing them too.

A Triumph bike for less than £3,000?! Well yes, but this is an e-bike, not a motorbike or ….. errr.. an electric motorbike.. Confusing isn’t it? There’s electric motorbikes (like these) which are basically motorbikes powered by electric. Then there’s electric bikes (bicycles / cycles) which are electric-assisted …

Cowboy unveils their third generation electric bike

Since the lockdown we’ve all been having a look at how we get around. For some, things have changed dramatically – perhaps working from home now all the time or selling that second car because it’s no longer needed. For others, it might just be the type of …

Another electric scooter incoming

Last year we took a look at the Zap i300. It’s an all-electric scooter from a British company and prices start at £5,250. The cheapest version has a 5kg battery which charges fast and should see you go for 35 miles. Now another company, Etergo, has secured a …
