Is pedaling easier on an electric bicycle?
Electric bicycles allow you to reach and maintain a higher speed in an easier way compared to traditional bicycles. With electric bicycles it is possible to take on more difficult itineraries, even including steep climbs, with less effort.
The electric assist in e-bikes is divided into different levels that assist in a different way depending on the model. A higher number corresponds to a wider and more nuanced choice of energy supply, which makes it possible to optimize consumption.
In fact, a lower level will contribute less, but will extend the duration of the battery. On the contrary, a higher level will reduce the number of assisted kilometers. Therefore, electric bicycles allow even amateur riders the ability to be able to tackle medium-difficulty climbs, they are however not recommended for more complicated itineraries or climbs of significant steepness or length.
What are the incentives available for buying electric bicycles?
The Mobility Bonus, also called the Bicycle Bonus, is one of the national subsidies provided for in the 2022 Relaunch Decree consisting of a tax credit for a maximum of 750 euros. The Mobility Bonus can be requested only by those who purchased bicycles, electric scooters, e-bikes, public transportation passes, or shared/ sustainable electric mobility services from August 1 to December 31, 2020.
As of today, the bicycle bonus isn’t available to everyone. Within the Italian regions, the forerunner is Friuli Venezia Giulia, which introduced a bicycle bonus that will allow citizens to receive a discount of up to 300 euros for the purchase of a new bicycle.
