article imageSwagtron introduces new e-bike model EB12

By Ken Hanly     Aug 6, 2019 in Technology
South Bend - Swagtron makes hoverboards, electric scooters and electric bikes among other items. It is expanding its line of e-bikes with a new non-folding model called the EB12.
The EB12
Swagtron is now based in South Bend Indiana. The company is known for its compact folding bikes as well as electric scooters and hoverboards. The inclusion of a lightweight non-folding city e-bike in its lineup is a sign of growing demand for electric models. A description of its products with photos is shown on its official website.
Unlike some other e-bikes the EB12 resembles a standard pedal bike except it has a 270Wh battery strapped to the rear rack. Some e-bike aficionados may not like the style but others will prefer it to the downtube-mounted battery.
The rear wheel contains a 250-watt motor, that together with the battery allows for a top range of 28 miles or 45 km. Riders can engage the motor either by twisting the throttle or by pedalling. The top throttle only speed is 16 miles per hour (26 km/hour). With the pedal-assist mode it can theoretically go faster. The bike has a seven-speed Shimano drivetrain for shifting gears.
Even with the rear-rack battery the EB12 has a pleasing profile. The 700c wheels, flat bar setup, and satin black paint job will surely appeal to those who want to look good while riding. The bike is relatively light at just 39.4 pounds or 17.8 kg. This is light compared to many other e-bikes.
Price
Swagtron says they will sell the EB12 for $999.99. Swagtron products retail at quite competitive prices and the company does very well selling through Amazon.
