The battery and the motor are frequently 15-20lbs. Just for reference, a heavy wheelset is around 2.3kg and a light wheelset is about 1.5kg, so the most you could possibly save by upgrading wheels is 2lbs, that's not much of a dent considering most ebikes are 30+ lbs. Also, the higher speeds and heavier weight of ebikes mean that they're harder on wheels than a normal bicycle.
