Electric bicycles, also known as e-bikes, are future bicycles with an electric motor as a locomotive. Electric bicycles using rechargeable batteries can go from 25 to 32 km/h, while more powerful varieties can go more than 45 km/h (28 mph). The research method begins with making an electric bicycle with a 350-watt BLDC motor powered by a 36 V 21 Ah battery, which theoretically will get up to 2 hours of battery use at maximum speed. The test was carried out in terms of travel speed fuel consumption on flat or uphill road conditions. After all the tests have been completed, data on the results of the performance of the electric bicycle can be obtained, and then a graph of the performance characteristics of the electric bicycle can be made. After conducting data analysis based on the graph of the performance characteristics of this electric bicycle, it is concluded that the use of the smallest gear is effective when the electric bicycle is starting, but the low speed and the largest gear are used when the motorbike is running to get a high speed of 32 km. The success of this research will impact Reducing dependency on fossil fuel vehicles.
