Rebecca has been writing about e-bikes for four years, after a typically ill-timed career change pre-pandemic. She's been riding bikes since she can remember, and fell back in love with them after realising it was faster, cheaper, and more fun than getting the bus to work. Nowadays she enjoys all kinds of bikes, from road to eMTB and is training her border collie pup to become a trail dog.

"The beauty of this bike as well is that you can ride without the battery in, and it doesn’t feel that much different to an unassisted bike. Naturally, there is a small level of drag from the motor not being engaged,..."

Pretty sure that with Fazua the motor and battery are housed together as one unit. When you drop the battery out, the motor is coming with it, so it can't be contributing any drag if you ride the bike like that. You can buy a dummy unit to fill the void in the frame, which can be used as storage too. All that remains is the gearbox that connects the drive motor to the pedal input.
