We keep hearing about electric vehicles, like the Model S from Tesla Motors, but what about electric bikes? They're a thing, and they've hit Indiegogo in a big way thanks to Wave and the "fastest and most affordable" electric bike ever with its eBike.




Wave is hoping to raise $70,000, with its eBike costing $499 right now, down from it $999 price when it hits stores in the near future. Wave's eBike is promising a top speed of up to 28mph, and a range of just over 26 miles in electric-only mode, from a single charge. The Wave weighs in at 50lbs, has a 750W motor, and a 12aH battery that can be charged in 3-5 hours.


Owners can ride it with its electric motor, or they can use the Wave like a normal bike, disabling the electric mode by twisting the throttle.
