Motorhome accessories: Emu Mini electric bike review

83c20fba-6ed8-4570-9654-2d3c01f77100

The Emu Mini electric bike really is a nifty little piece of kit. Folding electric bikes can be a little bit of a disappointment – fiddly, overly bulky and wobbly or flimsy feeling, but not this Emu Mini bike.

It’s pleasingly solid when you’re on it, as well as being contrastingly light – just 16kg and that’s including the in-built battery. It comes with chunky tyres on 16in wheels – they’re puncture resistant, too.

There’s Shimano hub gears (three-speed) and brakes for normal bike riding, while the Samsung battery can be ordered in 5.2Ah form, providing between 12 to 20 miles per charge or the 7Ah version, which provides 18 to 30 miles. The simple controls for the 250W electric motor are located on the handlebar and can offer five levels of power assistance. 

Unfolding and folding it is easy and fairly intuitive. Once you’ve followed the simple instructions a couple of times, you’ll have it nailed. Everything locks into place with sold-feeling levers, too, while the pedals fold up. Packed size is 70cm long, 35cm wide and 63cm high, so it’s not that small, but it will allow you to maximise your motorhome or campervan's underbed storage spaces.

The seat height can be adjusted as can the handlebar height and rake, meaning you should be able to find a comfortable riding position. You also get an LCD display, front and rear safety lights that are powered off the internal battery and an integrated bell. 

Surprisingly, this Emu Mini electric bike could be yours for £999 (5.2Ah) or £1,099 (7Ah), and this price includes a two-year warranty. It comes mostly built, too, so assembly won’t be taxing at all.
