Analog Motion's AM1 Looks and Costs the Same as a Standard Ride

Electric bikes have obvious benefits over traditional human-powered alternatives, but Analog Motion's new AM1 simultaneously eliminates the factors that usually make electric bikes an unrealistic option for consumers. The new vehicle is both lightweight and affordable, giving e-bike naysayers little fuel in the argument for supremacy.

The two classic rebukes against electric bikes are that they're too heavy and bulky to be practical for commuting and they simply cost so much more than the average bike. Analog Motion's AM1 weighs just 13.5 kilograms including its battery, making it barely heavier than the average non-electric bike and easy to carry around. The bike also costs just £499 or approximately $665, making it less expensive than many brand new road bikes that come without a motor or battery.
