EG Kyoto 350 Review - $1.5k The EG Kyoto 350 is a value priced hard-tail mountain ebike that is at home on light trails or for commuting given the wide range of gearing combined with a throttle, pedal assist, and a 28mph top speed, backed by EG who has been around since 2005 and a dealer support network, a wonderful offering for $1,499. Driven by a rear hub-drive motor that is rated at a 350-500 watts, can be engaged either by the cadence sensor for cadence based pedal assist or trigger throttle, is capable of speeds up to 28mph, uses a high capacity 48v 13ah battery, and has a simple and easy to read display. Mechanically operated by a 27 (3×9) speed Shimano Alivio dual derailleur setup, 11-32 tooth cassette in the rear, two sets of trigger shifters on the handlebars, and fast acting hydraulic disc brakes (180mm in the front and rear) each with motor inhibitors. Battery rattles around a bit due to mounting, some generic parts are employed like the internal battery cells, geometry may not be for everyone, no puncture protection or reflective sidewall stripe on tire, and no bottle cage bosses.
