Detroit Bike introduces its first e-bike, the $900 E-Sparrow

Published June 24, 2020

DETROIT (BRAIN) — Detroit Bikes is releasing a new e-bike called the E-Sparrow, a $900 commuter based on its popular Sparrow model. The company's first e-bike, the E-Sparrow features a 36V/250W Bafang rear hub motor.

"It was about time we got into the e-bike space" said Zakary Pashak, the founder and owner of Detroit Bikes. "As beautiful a system as a human-powered bicycle is, the accessibility and fun of e-bikes gives them the opportunity to truly change the face of urban transportation. To hit the e-bike market with a solid, fun as heck bike for $899 is going to give Detroit Bikes a competitive edge in this forefront of new urban mobility."

The E-Sparrow has a 25-mile battery range on the standard 36 volt, 280 watt Samsung battery. The bike has both pedal assist and a thumb throttle. 

Detroit launched the pedal-powered Sparrow last year following a sold-out Kickstarter campaign. "The Sparrow was designed by Ben Serotta and a team of industry veterans, and they nailed it — especially with this nationwide recent run on bikes the Sparrow has never been more popular. We've sold everything we have."
