What is often forgotten, but certainly important, are the looks of the bike. It is great to ride a distinctive bike that is also of good quality. Moreover, you will find a distinctive bike faster if your bike is parked between dozens of other bikes.

What is the range of an electric bicycle?
A question we often get about our bikes is how far you can go with a full battery. How far you can cycle with a fully charged battery – until it is empty – is called the range of an electric bike. In this article we show you what the average range of a BESV e-bike is. You can also read here how you can calculate it yourself and which factors determine the exact distance you can travel.
Range electric bicycle – How far can you go with a full battery?
Just like electric cars, electric bikes have a battery and a motor. And thus also a range! This is a distance that expresses how far you can cycle on average with pedal assistance, when the battery is fully charged. Important to know when looking for a new bike!
This distance can be quickly calculated from the battery capacity of your e-bike. This is the maximum energy that can be stored in a battery. By then also taking into account how high you set the pedal assistance, how fast you cycle and the weather conditions, you can estimate very precisely how far you can cycle.
Battery capacity divided by six
A handy rule of thumb you can use to calculate the average range is to divide the battery capacity (in Wh) by six. For example, do you have a battery with a capacity of 300 Wh? Then you can assume that you can cycle about 50 km far with this. In the table below we have listed the average range of some of our bikes.
