Frequently Asked Questions
Electric Delivery Bike Motor and effort
The NIU cargo bike is a perfect petrol replacement and it is business as usual, it powers up hills and offers a smooth and easy ride.
With the electric bicycle and tricycle product range, you need to pedal on an electric bike. Yes. If you thought that electric bikes move on their own, then you’re wrong. The motor works when you pedal. These bikes are called “pedal-assisted electric bikes“.
Having said that, there are e-bikes you don't need to pedal, but they are fairly rare. But to add to that, you cannot ride them on the streets without a license because they are basically mopeds or motorcycles.
An electric bike is easy to ride – the motor helps you pedal. You put less effort into it, you sweat less, riding is even more comfortable and pleasant.
Delivery Bike Speed
The NIU NGT will reach speeds of 43mph, perfect for city deliveries.
On an electric bicycle, you can reach speeds up to 15.5 miles per hour (25 km per hour) in motor assistance mode. This is quite enough for riding city streets, and everywhere else. It’s a lot faster than the average speed of a car in traffic during rush hour (7 miles per hour).
When riding an e-bike, the motor will help you pedal until you reach a speed of 15.5 miles per hour. This is the maximum speed allowed by law, otherwise, the bike will ride too fast (more like a moped or a motorbike). You can go as fast as you like after that, but under your own power. Motor manufacturers, therefore, limit the speed for you. (But you can keep pedalling and ride faster — you just have to put in more effort.)
There are e-bikes that go faster — up to 30 miles per hour, or more. Once again, we are talking about the motor assistance mode. These bikes are called “speed pedelecs”. The motor in these bikes assists the rider in the same limited way, and in the UK these need to be registered with the DVLA to be road legal.
The power of electric bicycle motors is limited — in England, by law, up to 250W.
Delivery Bike Battery Range
Depending on the battery, and charger, it can take around 2.5-8 hours to fully recharge from flat. However you don’t need to run the battery down before charging, there is no “battery memory”. Charge it any time you need to!
If the battery of an e-bike runs out on the road, you can still ride it just like riding a normal bike. A heavy normal bike. You just need to continue pedalling. It will not just stop, like a car that’s run out of petrol.
Delivery Bike Distance
The NIU NGT Extended range boasts a distance of up to 77 Miles.
If you have ever ridden a regular bicycle, you know that 20-30 miles is a pretty long ride. You can ride further on an electric bike with the same amount of effort. On average this is between 40 and 75 miles on one battery charge, depending on its capacity and the terrain, the way you ride, etc. Bosch have a great ride simulator that is amazingly accurate.
Climbing Hills and Inclines on Your Delivery Bike
The NIU NGT tackles hills with very little effort.
One of the main benefits of an e-bike is that it is much easier to ride on uneven terrain and when climbing hills or mountains. Riding up hills or mountains can be very difficult if you’re not a very active person.
An electric bike also makes it easier to tackle those nasty headwinds.
Delivery Bike/Fleet Maintenance
EcoMove will assist you on keeping your electric bike on the road with a range of servicing options or simple book-in services.
If you buy a new model rather than a used one, electric bicycles will hardly need any maintenance. The most important things are to keep it clean, lubricate the drive system and regularly check the chain and wheels.
But if you do need to repair your bike, it is usually as easy as an ordinary bicycle, this is something we help with too. Maintaining and repairing an electric bike shouldn’t be more expensive, though finding a repair specialist might be difficult. Motor manufacturers such as Bosch and Shimano have a network of qualified dealers who are able to work on any bike equipped with their systems.
License and Laws for Electric Delivery Bikes
The NIU NGT requires a CBT to ride and follows all the rules of the road as a petrol moped.
With regards to electric bicycles, you don’t need a license to ride a bike and you don’t have to pay any tax. You will need to comply with motor law though as you would riding a regular bicycle. The benefits compared to those of a motorbike or car is that you can pop to the shops in the same way, but you avoid road taxes, MOTs, insurance etc – big payments to pay every year.
Of course, if you opt for more powerful or faster bikes, you will need a license and other documents.
If you buy a more powerful bike here and intend to travel on it or want to take it with you on a bus, train, or plane, it’s important to stay up to date with the rules that apply in other countries. The laws on riding an e-bikes are still being written.
Electric Bikes: Eco-Friendliness and Clean Air Zones
An ebike is environmentally friendly – just like a normal bicycle. It does not produce harmful emissions into the atmosphere because it runs on electricity rather than liquid fuel. For the same reason, electric bikes are as quiet as regular bicycles.
This means they are perfect for all cities with clean air zones in place.

Got an e-bike from Eco Move recently and very pleased with it! Makes cycling into work much nicer. Mark and Nilloy were super kind and helpful when it came to ordering the bike and making sure everything got sorted. I also had to bring my bike in for some break adjustments and Jack sorted it all out and undid the mess I made of it trying to adjust it myself. My partner also got his E bike from here and has been really pleased with his bike as well. Thank you Eco-Move team!

Bought a bike through EcoMove 6 months ago and had a few questions about how smoothly it's was running. Popped in after work at gone 4:40pm expecting only an opinion. The technician couldn't have been more helpful. Gave the bike a good check over, fixing chain tension and tightening brakes. Then found and sorted core issue with spokes on rear wheel. Great customer service.

Can’t fault EcoMove. Really excellent customer service from start to finish. Nilloy and Simon made me feel comfortable the moment I walked in and were both very knowledgeable about the bikes, as well as just genuinely nice people. I love riding my new Mi-Rider to work and am really pleased I bought it from EcoMove. Thanks so much guys!

The crew is extremely nice, very patient. They always welcome you with a smile and take all the time necessary to get you a bike and tailor it to your needs. Furthermore, the prices become very affordable when you take a long-term rental (I rented there twice, each time for one week). Lastly, the bikes are reliable, with powerful assistance, and they are in a perfect state when you pick them up.
