Battery Rapido

100% Australian Road Legal

Rapido is 100% road legal. It can be used and considered as a normal pushbike in terms of road rules. It can be used on cycle tracks and treated the exact same as a pushbike when the throttle is disabled, even when still using the Intelligent Pedal Assist (i.e. when still using the motor).

Learn more about current Australian road rules and legalities surrounding e-Bikes in Australia. No licence or rego is needed. These bikes are rego and licence exempt. Just a helmet and you’re ready to ride.

Light Alloy Step-Through Frame
Less weight extends your battery range

26-inch alloy frame (weighing just 19kg without battery!). Chose from blue, red or black. All come in the step-through design so you can hop on and off with ease.

Mudguards sit above each wheel helping prevent splashback and keeping you dry in the wet.

The frame is thoughtfully designed to include a mountable rear-wheel bracket you can tie down cargo on.


Step Through Frame Design

Suits people of all builds and sizes
can suit a rider from 5' ft to 6'6" ft

El Rapido 2021 suits people of all sizes, from 5’ ft to 6’6” ft. Handlebars and seating position are fully adjustable. Setup to your height and riding preference. If you’re on the smaller side (below 5’3” ft) we’d recommend swapping out the suspension seat post for our purpose-designed lower riding alternate that allows the seat to drop more. There’s no additional cost for this, just mention it in the comments when you go to complete your purchase and we’ll include it instead of the standard suspension seat post.

Step-through frame design (the classic European commuter design) makes getting on-and-off this bike effortless and comfortable regardless of your body build, fitness or height. As the name suggests, simply ‘step through’ – no need to swing your leg over like other bike designs. Coming to a complete stop is also made more comfortable. Once stationary you can easily stand up with both feet planted on the ground. No need to orient your weight to one side and rest on one foot at a lean. El Rapido 2021 remains incredibly user-friendly and practical for your daily commute and dashing place to place.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes (Front & Rear)
Better Stopping Power & Less Maintenance

Know you can stop suddenly if required with Tektro HD-E350 hydraulic disc breaks fitted to both the front and rear wheels. With more stopping power than mechanical brakes, less force is required to apply the lever and receive the same stopping power.

However, perhaps the most important advantage of hydraulic brakes comes with maintenance. We’ve designed this e-bike to be as low maintenance for you as possible. Ready to ride at all times. Hydraulic disc brakes will automatically self-adjust as they wear down, unlike mechanical ones that require constant, complicated and fiddly adjustment to keep you riding safer for longer. For a daily commuter e-bike, hydraulic brakes are a huge benefit over mechanical brakes.

Front Suspension Forks
comfier ride over bumps and rough terrain

To keep you riding in comfort for longer and over more diverse terrain El Rapido 2021 comes complete with SR SUNTOUR front forks. Better glide over rough and bumpy surfaces with ease. For a comfier ride, front suspension is a must.

Bafang Rear Hub Motor
Quick and smooth, with predictable, easy-to-control power

Rear hub motor design results in better traction and stronger frame mounting. It also helps you to maintain balance when steering at higher speeds.

Befang has been at the forefront of e-mobility design for almost 20 years. Backed by a 1-year warranty, you know this motor will last.

These motors are small, lightweight and discreet; located within the centre of the rear wheel.

Simply pedalling the bike will activate the motor, spurring you onwards.

Rear Motor

Intergrated Lights (Front & Rear)
Ready to ride, day or night

Adjustable front and rear lights are integrated into the Rapido. Come nightfall you’re ready to ride safely at the flick of a switch. Plus additional reflectors for added visibility when lights are shining on you.  No need to spend more on extras like after-market lighting (though we’re not against it if you want to keep really safe!).

Front Lights:

Blue Front With Light 2


Rear Lights & Reflectors:

Half Grip Throttle

Adjustable Handle Positon

Adjust the angle of the handlebars to suit your height and riding preference.

Matilda's Thoughts on This Great City Commuter

33 reviews for Rapido 2021 – Daily Commuter E-Bike

  1. Bruno Muchada

    Best bikes and best service! Totally recommended!!

  2. Karim Zuhri

    Recently bought the 2021 rapido and I love it! I use it daily to get to the office, very nice and light to ride! Definitely recommend it!

  3. Matilda

    My Rapido is great. It’s halved my commute. It’s the best thing ever.

    I looked for ages for an electric bike that had hydraulic breaks and this is the only one I could find in my price point.

    It’s got the comfiest seat. I love getting around on it.

  4. Scott Whitham

    Had my Vamos bike now for over 12 months. Daily use to and from work and the surf. Could not fault the bikes. We have a baby seat attached, our little fella loves it too. Conrad and the team offer great help for any questions or help.

  5. Charlotte Anthony

    Had a cruise around the Hunter Valley on these and they were perfect. Powered up those hills in no time! Would highly recommend for any outing.

  6. BK

    I purchased the El Rapido October 2019. Great value purchase and have had good service since. HIGHLY recommended

  7. Maria Silva

    Great bike and great service. It’s a nice looking bike and has never let me down. The owner is also very helpful and I highly recommend Vamos!

  8. Rob Frawley

    I have a Vamos Rapido Commuter. What an amazing electric bike! I have always had trouble keeping up with my three boys on the bikeways. Now I get where we are going a lot quicker with less effort. I recommend these to anyone looking for a quality affordable commuter style e-bike. An awesome bike and the customer service is second to none.

  9. Raj Thapa

    I had purchased ebike few months ago and have got electric issues.

    They have fixed the issue within a couple of days with free of additional cost.

    They had shown tremendous customers service and full of commitment. I want to highly recommend it thank you!

  10. Mariano Abad

    I purchased the El Rapido a couple months ago and I couldn’t be happier. Honestly the bike is amazing and the after purchase service has been awesomeness!

    The team is very friendly and it was always for me when I need them.

    Highly recommended Vamos Bikes!

  11. John Hollingsworth

    Have had my El Rapido bike for 11 months and it goes great, takes me up hills easily and the after sales service is very good

  12. Arnold

    Fun bike to ride. Delivery and service has been first rate.

  13. JP

    My 2019 El Rapido is still going as new! Best value electric bike on the market. I would just suggest to swap the grip throttle (which I never use) for a grip bell, because the bell is a bit hard to reach.

    A great good-vibe local company overall that’s a pleasure to support!

  14. Mohammad Abdur Rahman Khan

    Such a great cycle I ever purchase. Worth value of money. Highly recommend ✋✋

  15. Matilda Longfield

    Great service, great blokes, great bike!

  16. Amy

    11 out of 10 bikes!! Michael and Conrad were so helpful with what bike to choose. Love my Rapido! First and last electric bike .

  17. Allan L

    I bought my second bike from the friendly and helpful guys at Vamos today. I must say the bikes have improved a lot in every way since I bought my last one 2 years ago. The prices and value for money are excellent. I highly recommend Vamos.

  18. Linda Lombard

    Got my Rapido 3-yrs ago, as due to ill health not able to walk very far – my bike has been amazing! The service from Vamos bikes has been incredible. Recently I was having problems with my electrics on bike and they lent me another bike to ride until mine fixed. I highly recommend Vamos for superb service, great bikes – just buy one!!!

  19. Erik Graff

    Great bike. Very happy.

  20. LR Dayman

    Amazing bike and great customer service. I’ve already been recommending to my mates. Thanks Vamos!

  21. Raga Sai


  22. Enrique

    Of all the e bikes I’ve had, this is the best and it has a wonderful technical service where they care about customer satisfaction, honestly they exceeded my expectations.

  23. Peta

    The only way to travel particularly in a hilly place like Sydney. To work and back for me is fantastic and no need for traffic jams, and buses and trains. I wish I got one sooner!

  24. Lyss Anne

    I hired one out the other day and it was awesome! The guys at Vamos are lovely and even gave me advice on where to ride to!

  25. Petra

    Perfect bike for my commuting to work from Bondi Junction to Surry Hills. I zoom up the hill back home now instead of getting off my push bike and walking! The electric bike is easy to use and fun, and I still feel like I’m getting some exercise.

  26. TK

    Probably the best experience I have had in regards to customer service. The bike itself feels super reliable, sturdy and well made. Would recommend

  27. Emily Hendley

    Great customer service – delivered charged to my work so I could cycle home. Absolutely love my bike! Now takes me 15 minutes to commute instead of 30!!

  28. Lotti Wilkinson

    Love riding my bike to work across the harbour bridge. So quick and easy compared to being on a packed bus. Would recommend a Vamos bike to anyone. Make the change from public transport to Vamos Bikes 😀

  29. 顾一斌

    Thank you!

  30. Rachel Hudson

    I love my rapido for zipping around the city. Perfect for getting around hilly Sydney and it flies along the flats. So much fun!

  31. Frazer Green

    Honestly the best thing to hit AUS. Great work VAMOS!

  32. Susie Dene

    Excellent service. Having a couple of trial rides helped work out which bike to pick.

  33. AM

    Makes getting to work so quick and easy. Can get up those hills without breaking a sweat!
