I got an ebike a few months ago, I'm not lazy. I use it for my daily commute,  8 miles each way and I love the comfort, carrying ability and not having to change clothes before and after. I can get to work faster on my road bike but my coffee mug doesn't fit in my bottle holder and I don't have access to a shower. I've added five hours of easy effort exercise and saved about 100 litres of diesel so far. I'd say Bosch are well placed to comment on the ebike market.

First of all this is selv-serving Bosch Corporate propaganda, not a proper third party analysis.

Secondly this is like me saying that by handing out half the answers on ever exam, I've "taken away the excuses' to not study for the test.

Lazy people who dont want to exercise won't do it. This is different from providing a new means of mobility for the infirm or aged. But lazy people will still do nothing.They are the ones why pay for memberships to fitness centres and then don't go. Electric bike won't help these types.

TIL an electric motor keeps my both dry, warm, and best of all, apparently protects me from dangerous drivers!
