What impacts the range of an electric motorbike?

The range of an electric motorbike is defined as the distance the vehicle travels on a single full charge of the Powerpack. Learn the impacts of, how to extend, the range.

Like petrol motorbikes and scooters, mileage will vary depending on your riding habits and conditions, and your range results are a direct reflection of your riding habits.

The more conservatively you ride, the better range you can expect from your FONZ.

The key factors which affect range include:

  • Rider behaviour - speed, acceleration, modulated riding, number of starts and stops
  • Braking style - e.g. heavy braking across short distances versus utilising regen properties
  • Ambient air temperature - range will be greater in warmer conditions
  • Terrain
  • Tyre pressure; and
  • Load

We suggest that you ride conservatively as you get to know your FONZ.

Once you become familiar with the range versus performance of your vehicle, then you can adjust your riding characteristics if you desire. This applies mainly to riders with trip profiles which are at the edge of the performance envelope. 


FONZ shares indicative range and performance based on maximising the benefits of regenerative braking in city riding conditions. Read more about how to maximise your range with regenerative braking
