Motorcycles Vs Electric Bikes

fat bike elettrica bike which one is better? In my opinion there is no better or worst it all depends on what you are looking for. For example if you were looking for working clothe. The clothe you buy would depend on the type of work you do. If you are a banker you would not buy farmers’ clothe and vice versa. The transportation method you will use will depend on your needs and desires just as your working clothe depends on your line of work.
