PRLog - May 11, 2010 - SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. -- UrbanScooters.com presents the X-Treme XB502, an electric bike that looks like a polished, classy electric moped. The XB-502 can operate on 100% electric power, be ridden like a regular non-electric bicycle, or any combination of the two. The 500 watt motor can get you up to 20 mph for up to 25 miles on a single charge, and the top speed increases if you pedal. This electric bike’s motor puts out plenty of power to take on medium sized hills. The X-Treme XB502 is loaded with nearly all of the same features you find on an electric moped at a fraction of the cost! While you have to register and hold a driver's license to operate a moped, the X-Treme XB-502 is classified as an electric bicycle. The "electric bikes" classification allows you to operate it without registration or a driver's license in most states (please contact the DMV to check the laws in your area before you purchase electric bikes). The X-Treme XB-502 electric bicycle is environmentally friendly, noise-free, and operates on only pennies a day. Riding an electric bicycle also offers commuters a great way to bypass high prices at the pump!
