Today, we’d like to introduce you to the Model R. This is our hybrid E-Bike – a bike that’s built to be rugged, versatile, and comfortable. We love all our bikes, but we’re really excited about this, our newest model released earlier this year. Designed for all riders – large and small, male and female, slight and heavy, the Model R really is universally loved and lauded.
Designed for trails and the beach, the Model R comes with front fork suspension and a super comfortable seat with the option to upgrade to a suspension seat post for even more comfort. The battery is hidden in the bottom of the frame and has three possible ranges: 50 miles for the 11.6 amp battery, 72 miles for the upgraded 14 amp battery or 120 miles if you add the optional battery in the basket.
Other features include a powerful 1,250 watt motor, direct drive with the option to add 7 speed, 5 levels of pedal assist provide plenty of power, thumb throttle, hydraulic disc brakes – 4 piston disc brakes for advanced stopping power, a motorbike-grade kickstand, integrated front and back lights, and a full color display.
With premium 3” puncture resistant tires specifically developed for Electric Bike Company, a super strong aluminum hydro-formed frame, and the absolute best E-Bike motor in the world, the Model R is quality inspected before shipping then delivered to your door. It will take you less than ten minutes to unbox and assemble your new hybrid machine – just attach and tighten the handlebars and adjust the seat and you’re ready to go!

EBC Model R Owner Reviews
Our EBC family grows larger every day. We’re stoked to have enthusiastic owners like these guys:
“We chose the Model R because they are sturdy, versatile and have puncture resistant tires. We accessorized our bikes with baskets, MIK racks, Bluetooth speakers, mirrors, and cup holders. Our favorite trail so far was the 17 Mile Drive Carmel to Monterey. We heard about EBC through friends who shared their guest bikes with us on a ride. Fell in love immediately!”
Model R owner Wendy Fox (with Time Jones Below)
“First, I liked the styling: very cool and reminiscent of an old cruiser motorcycle. Next, I liked that it had a step-through frame so I didn’t have to swing my leg over the seat… Having the ability to customize with colors and accessories was a bonus: have added the front basket and a rear crate with the MIK system. Our favorite trail so far is the Salt Creek Trail done to Dana Harbor. Second is the Huntington Beach to Newport Beach bike path to visit the famous crazy surf spot: The Wedge! We found EBC just by driving by: serendipity.”
