When you ride an ordinary bike, the fastest speed depends on the effort you pay to step on the pedals. The more you give, the faster you will ride. So how about the electric bike? Are they the same? No, the max speed of an electric bike is limited due to the limitation of the speed controller.
Most electric bikes are divided into 3 categories: Class 1, Class 2, Class 3. The top speeds of them are different. The top speed of Class 1, Class 2 electric bikes is 20 mph (32km/h), while the top speed of Class 3 electric bikes is 28 mph (45 km/h). If you need a fast electric bike, then you have to buy a class 3 electric bike.

Class 4 electric bike cannot be legally used on the road, and they are classified into the same category as electric dirt bike. According to the US electric biKE classification regulations, the maximum speed of class 4 electric bikes exceeds 28mph, and the motor power exceeds 750W.
There are many factors that affect the speed of electric bikes, such as the classification of electric bikes, motor power, road conditions, tire size, riders weigh etc.
It is approx 20 mph, a 250-watt electric bike can goes 20 mph (32.19 km/h) on flat ground.
It is approx 20 mph, if your electric bike has a 500 watt motor, it can allow you to reach a top speed of about 20 mph. Because the electric bike with 500W motor is still in Class 1, Class 2 which maximum speed is limited to 20 mph.
It is about 28 mph (45 km/h), 750W motor is very common in Class 3 electric bike, so the maximum speed is 28 mph.
Yes. Class 1 to Class 3 electric bikes have a maximum speed of 28mph due to the speed limit. However, if the speed limit is lifted, some powerful electric bikes can exceed 40mph, 50mph or even 60mph.
Class 4 or other types of electric bikes have higher speeds than 28 mph.
Yes, it is technically possible, you can unlock the speed limit of the electric bike.
But in real life, it is illegal to lift the speed limit of electric bikes. In addition, even if you lift the speed limit, this does not mean that the brakes or other parts of the electric bike are designed for these higher speeds.
It is about 35mph (56 km/h), a 1000w electric bike will drive you at speeds up to approximately 35 mph, depending on factors such as weight, terrain, and personal preference.
It is about 38-43 mph (60-70 km/h), a 2000W electric bike can easily reach speeds of 38 mph (60 km/h), some of which can even exceed 43 mph (70 km/h).
It is about 50 mph (80 km/h), a 3000w e-bikes can reach speeds of more than 50 mph.
It is about 50-65 mph (80-100 km/h), the electric bike with 5000w motor, 26-inch tire, max speed approx 50-65mph.
In most countries, regions are illegal. In the United States, six states explicitly allow electric bikes with a maximum power of 1000W; they are Georgia, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oregon and Virginia. Currently, only two states in Florida, Mississippi, do not have maximum power limits for electric bikes.
If you just need an ordinary electric bike that can be legally used on the road, then Class 1 and Class 2 electric bikes are enough, that is, electric bikes with a motor power less than 500W and a maximum speed of 20 mph. If you need faster speeds, then Class 3 electric bikes can satisfy you. The power is generally less than 750W and the maximum speed is 28 mph.
