All the versions of the NewGen e-bikes are designed and built in the United Kingdom, offering the combined look and lifestyle of a motorbike with the ease and accessibility of a bike.
The 345-E is the basic version of the NewGen bikes and is great for short rides for groceries or if you have a commute that isn’t too tasking, the 345 however has the extra features needed for a more demanding bike especially if you’re commuting to and from work with more distance between or tackling some hills. The 345-S however is not a road legal bike in the UK, it comes with a throttle that can get you to a top speed of 25 mph, so this bike is best used when off-roading on trails or leisurely rides that need a bit of a boost.

NewGen 345 eBike Speed
The speed for the 345 are very similar apart from the 345-S which has a top speed of 23mph, this isn’t a road legal speed for e-bikes in the UK so this would have to be used off the road as it also comes with a throttle.
The 345-E and 345 both have a top speed of 15.5mph which is a decent speed for commuting and doesn’t make you too slow if you are using roads to travel on.
NewGen 345 eBike Battery & Range
All 3 versions of the bikes come with a removable battery pack made with Samsung cells and boast a good range for the bikes. The 345-E can get 15-20 miles, the 345 can get 40-50 miles and the 345-S can get 30-40 miles; all really good range for the types of bikes they are and also for the types of riders that may be looking at buying one.
