50 km / h - impossible without tuning
Due to the increasing popularity, there is now a large selection E-Bikes on the market. The so-called pedelecs are the most common variant that occurs in road traffic. Such pedelecs can reach speeds of up to 35 km / h to reach. With the Speed pedelec (S-Pedelec) there is one more faster Variant. These electric bikes reach through that engine support when pedaling Speeds of up to 45 km/h. But pedelecs or S-Pedelecs are none classic electric bikes, because with these models the pedaling power is only provided by the motor supports.
Real e-bikes, on the other hand, come completely without pedaling power and rather remind us of Mopeds than on bicycles. These models can too without the use of muscle power drive. The driver can Accelerate using the handlebars and the e-bike drives by itself. Just like a moped. There are now 3 types of these e-bikes on the market. These differ mainly in the top speedwhich they can achieve. The models start with one Top speed of up to 20 km / h, the faster variant can drive up to 25 km / h and the fastest e-bikes on the market achieve a Top speed of 45 km / h. E-bikes which are standard 50 km/h or drive even faster there is not anyas these speeds are for e-bikes are not allowed. E-bikes the faster than 50 km / h are on the way, are definitely tuned.
E-bike tuning is made easier than it sounds
Even if you don't know much about e-bikes, you can do them very easily and without much expertise tune. In the trade are already finished Tuning sets available through which the speed of e-bikes can be increased. But how do these systems work? Very easily: With e-bikes, the speed is usually constantly measured and to one controller transmitted. However, once a certain speed has been reached, tuning only results in half the speed measured and the falsified value then to the Controller transmitted. This allows the computer and motor to be outwitted, as the motor believes that it is traveling at a speed of 25 km / h, even though the e-bike is actually already 50 km/h or faster moves. This possibility of E-bike tunings can simply installed and just as easy and quick removed again.
In addition to this rather simple tuning variant, there is also other options tuning an e-bike. For all other options, however, it is clear more expertise required. Another option would be to make changes directly to the engine by installing special components in order to increase power and torque. Also a complete replacement of the engine is possible, for example against a stronger one.
