Torque is a consideration, but actual figures are rarely quoted by e-bike makers. Owners will frequently comment on whether their electric bike offers plenty of torque or lacks it, but these comments need to be taken in context. Road conditions, as well as the weight of the rider, have a big impact.

What is it? Back to the definitions, since it is not an electric bike, it CAN be a motor driven cycle. So it is a Moped, and a moped IS a motor vehicle. If I look up the requirements for mopeds in other statutes, I may find my homemade moped will not be legal without lights, turn signals, dot approved tires, valid drivers license needed, etc etc etc. If that is so I’m screwed! ARRRGHHH!
Maybe you merely have to pedal without the motor to be legal on that trail. Or maybe you just have to ride slow. Maybe if you look just like a gasoline scooter, nice little old ladies start throwing rocks at you. It can be quite peculiar at the local level. One day, I nearly got in a fist fight with 30 jogging body-builders that decided my e-bike was not allowed on the trail. They thought ALL bikes were not allowed. Some days you just have to bend to the local peculiarity of that day. That day, I got off the path, and got back on again once I was out of their sight.
Pennsylvania is one of the states where non-ebikers who shouldn’t get involved are anyway. Let me explain why they look foolish for trying to control what they don’t even understand. PA vehicle code states 5 “requirements” or criterion which are critical to legal ebikes. the 3rd states in order for it to be a motor vehicle (not a bike) it MUST have an automatic transmission. Even though the code had the term “electric bike” added to it, it still left the “automatic transmission” requirement. Electric motors and bicycles don’t have automatic transmissions, and aren’t really classified in the vehicle code for that reason. Yet on Penndot’s (PA’s DMV) website there is a promiscuous “FACT SHEET” which says electric bikes are all illegal without registration and a DL. I would tell them to stop being so dumb, but I’ve noticed this approach rarely changes the ‘facts’, and I”ll just leave that nest of bees alone. I wonder who wrote that turd. Not one of us, we don’t step on our own rights, do we? I don’t even try to step on others’. But have to be careful where you step. I like laws. But they have to make sense. Ebikes are harmless and can reduce the plague of pollution to heal what I’ve seen become noticeably dirtier (waterways, snow) in my own lifespan, What a shame to even consider it being illegal.

The oldest patent for an electric bike I’ve been able to find at the US Patent and Trademark Office is this one, by Ogden Bolton, Jr. of Canton Ohio, which was filed in September 1895 and granted three months later. You can see from these original diagrams that it bears an amazingly close resemblance to modern electric bikes. In the general picture on the left, you can see there’s a hub motor on the rear wheel (blue), a battery suspended from the frame (red), and a simple handlebar control to make the thing stop and go. In the more detailed cutaway of the hub motor on the right, you can see there’s a six-pole magnet in the center (orange) bolted to the frame and an armature (made from coiled wire, yellow) that rotates around it when the current is switched on. It’s quite a hefty motor even by modern standards; Ogdon mentions “a heavy current at low voltage—for instance, to carry one hundred amperes at ten volts.” So that’s 1000 watts, which is about twice the power of a typical modern bike hub motor.
Now that sales are taking off, the vast majority of bike dealers are asking Cocalis when he’ll make an ebike available. Meanwhile, Pivot Cycles sells an ebike in Europe, and has its eye on the U.S. market.

The time or distance an electric bike battery will run between chargings is impossible to judge with much accuracy. There are too many variables: terrain, speed, rider weight, bike load (shopping, kids, luggage), and more. However, we can make a few generalizations about an e-bike’s recharge time and overall working life. These generalizations should be used for comparison purposes only.
