Often cited as the best step through beach cruiser, the EBC Model Y is a more affordable version of the Model S. Like all our bikes, the Model Y was designed right here in the US. Each Model Y is built to the exact specifications of the buyer – you get to choose everything from the color, the fork type and tires to the accessories, drive train and chainguard. Our specially trained bike builders in Southern California build each bike from scratch from beginning to end – ensuring that every detail is perfect.
The Model Y has all the range and power you need for cruising around – and it can reach a top speed of 25 mph with pedal assist or throttle. This class 3 electric bike has a range of 40 miles which increases to around 80 miles with the addition of an optional battery that sits snugly inside the front basket accessory.
Like all our E-Bikes, the Model Y comes with an LCD display that provides all the data you need on speed, battery level and distance traveled. The standard Model Y comes with solid forks that can be upgraded to suspension forks – which we recommend if you’ll be riding over rougher terrain. You can also add seat post suspension to further smooth out your ride.

Y Our Customers Love their Ys
“I chose mine after test driving one at Oceanside Rides. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after I rode it. I played with the customization online and then returned to the shop to order my lavender and black model.”
Lora Vuncannon, Member Electric Bike Company – Bike Owners
“I am 75 with torn meniscus and not wanting surgery. I am able to ride for hours on pedal assist 2 without damage to knees, get on and off easily and perform different range of motion exercise other than walking now that I am peddling again. The bike is solid as can be and handles my 200 lbs. with ease. I am a man and love the step through. It’s the best cruising bike made!”
Keith Cowen, Member Electric Bike Company – Bike Owners
“Ok. I’ll make this short and sweet. I did a lot of research before buying a bike, I didn’t know much about electric bikes, and time and time again I kept coming back to EBC. I made my decision, and purchased an EBC Model Y. I definitely made right decision. Beautiful bike. Pictures don’t do them justice. Rides and runs great no issues straight out of the box. Everyone in the neighborhood loves it, hopefully they will buy one too. If you want a quality well-made product this is it, and worth the wait. Pull the trigger and buy one you won’t regret it! Keep pedaling 🚴”
Jenny Tripi, Trust Pilot Review
“Absolutely worth the wait for a custom ordered bike built the way you want it. We ordered a Model C and Model Y. So far, we have been able to take them out for some short rides, can’t wait to do longer rides soon. These were purchased to replace another brand of E-Bike and WOW!!! What a difference!
Quality parts, better speed, better battery life, comfort, and amazing looks. Every time we’ve stopped to enjoy the sights and a good meal we have been asked about our bikes and have received wonderful comments. We Love our EBC Bikes!!”
Fritz S, Trust Pilot Review
“Received my Model Y electric bike today! Love it! It was easy to unpack and get ready to ride. I can’t wait to take it for longer rides when the weather gets warm again. And best of all the seat is the most comfortable bike seat I have ever sat on!”
