Features of the Rapido 2021 – City Commuter E-Bike

Samsung Battery
Recharge at any household outlet. 1-YR Warranty.

36v/13ah will last you 60-70km with a 4-5 hour charge time. The Samsung cell battery guarantees longevity backed by a 1-year warranty. Slides in-and-out for ease of charging. Lockable (with a key) to help keep it secure.

Battery Rapido

Light Alloy Frame
Less weight to extend 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 (or passengers?).

Red Frame

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 And Rear Breaks

Front Suspension Forks

To keep you riding in comfort for longer and over more diverse terrain El Rapido 2021 come’s complete with SR SUNTOUR front forks.

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.

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!).

Half Grip Throttle
Reach speeds without pedalling

Half grip throttle to control your speed when using the motor.

Half grip throttles are like the little brother of full twist throttles. They operate the exact same way as a full twist throttle except that they don’t reach all the way to the end of the handlebar. They reach about half way.

Adjustable Handle Positon

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

  1. Arnold

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

  2. 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!

  3. Mohammad Abdur Rahman Khan

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

  4. Matilda Longfield

    Great service, great blokes, great bike!

  5. 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 .

  6. 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.

  7. 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!!!

  8. Erik Graff

    Great bike. Very happy.

  9. LR Dayman

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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!!

  17. 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 😀

  18. 顾一斌

    Thank you!

  19. 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!

  20. Frazer Green

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

  21. Susie Dene

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

  22. AM

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