I know you are thinking why I am discussing the best electric bicycle in India?
Because these are convenient and will work great for long distance outdoor cycle training.
For example: You are going to cover 20km on a day with full speed that your legs can generate. But when you are coming back you will be so tired you have to stop to take rest.
If cycling is not your full time job then this above process is tiring and time consuming.
Thus an electric cycle can be a training partner and a great eco friendly option instead of a scooty or bike.

Buying Guide to the best electric cycle in India
Motor: Choose the motor wisely since it will determine the battery voltage. If you are buying an electric bicycle motor kit 350w or 250 watts then you have to chose the battery accordingly. Otherwise if you are buying an fully assembled electric cycle then you do not have to worry.
The motor also determines the top speed of the bicycle.
Usually a 250 watt motor will go as fast as 25 km per hour and 350 watt motor will go about 35 km per hour.
Battery capacity: A usual 7.5 Ah battery will last around 35km at one charge. But when the battery becomes large, like 20Ah, you can go 80km at single charge. If that is the case with me then I can usually ride for a week with a single charge.
Brakes: Since you are using a motor powered cycle, you will need disk brakes. Without disk brakes riding a powered cycle is dangerous. So always go for disk brakes if you are looking to get one of the best electric cycles in India.
Suspension: With speed the bumpy roads will feel more bumpy. And with a suspension those harsh roads will feel much better. Thus always get electric bicycles which comes with suspensions.
Gear: yes, you do not need 7 or 21 speed gears. But if gears are present then riding uphills gets easier. And with a motor you can go much faster with gears. If you wish you can begin with 7 speed gears but like other cycles, geared cycles are more difficult to maintain.
Usually electric fat bicycles come with 21 gears. Geared motors are usually a better choice to me as well. Even better than an electric scooter.
Unisex: It is better to get unisex elelctric cycles so both men and women can use the motor. Apart from long cycling sessions these electric bicycles can be a great option to ride to short distances for the whole family.
Installation Process: Many electric cycles are foldable but those are not durable enough. Thus I would avoid them. And other than this the installation process should be easy if the motor is already installed.
However, always check youtube and instructions from the manufacturer.
Accessories: Usually no premium or electric cycles come with mudguard, basket, light etc. There are some exceptions like the Geekay UNI which costs around 35k but comes with all the accessories. Not having to buy accessories separately is a great feeling.
Service centers: Cycles do not need service centers but when it comes to electric bicycles there are motor, gears and other electrical parts. Those might need some professional attention from time to time. Thus always look for service centers near your home.
Which is the best electric bicycle in India?
HERO Lectro and Kinsta electric bicycles are one of the best electric bicycles in India if you do not mind the hidden battery compartment. Other than this there are Geekay who also make decent electric cycles for Indian streets.
What is the best electric bike for the money?
In my case the Geekay ecobike UNI electric cycle is the best electric bike for the money. It is unisex, has gears and good overall built.
Can you ride an electric bicycle in the rain?
You can ride on an electric bicycle in the rain. The battery is well covered in the case or in the metal frame. And the motor and other wirings are waterproof to an extent as well. So you can ride an electric bicycle in the rain easily.
How far can an electric bicycle go?
Electric cycles are limited to the battery capacity to go further. Larger the battery capacity, the further away they can go. Usually electric cycles come with a 7.5 AH battery.
And there are larger battery options as well, for example there are 18-20Ah batteries available also, these can give you a millage of 80km per charge easily.
How fast can an electric bicycle go?
A 250 watt motor on an electric bicycle can go upto 25km per hour of speed. And a 350 watt motor can go upwards of 35km per hour. Faster than that then you will need a license and the whole purpose of easy riding, saving nature will fail.
How to wash an electric bicycle?
Use water and a cloth to clean your electric bicycle. You do not need to use a water pipe to throw water at high speed, then it can go inside the battery pack or writing. Otherwise soap water and a cloth can be used to wash your electric bicycle easily.
