I was skeptical at first about the mileage on my Haibike with the Yamaha motor till I tried it, The bike's range goes on further than my interest to ride in a day. If I leave it in eco or standard mode I certainly can get 40 to 60 miles on it with some coasting and just average pedaling. I have not tested the Bosch on an extended ride, just parking lot rides on demo days. I prefer the Yamaha, feels completely natural so to speak. The modes are completely dialed in correctly, You will feel each mode eco is like a bike with just enough juice to help on the flats, standard is really do it all while the highest power mode is not necessary till you hit really big hills or lazy. I tested many ebikes at the ebike expo. I highly suggest the lowest price Sduro and than you can upgrade whatever you need yourself cheaply. Haibikes are not cheap bikes.

Haibike | We are ePerformance.

If you get the above change the tires, the dual purpose tires do not stop well in the wet, too little tread to grip in the wet.
