What is the difference between new and pre-owned e-bikes?Updated 7 months ago

At Upway, we understand that every rider has unique needs and preferences when it comes to choosing their perfect e-bike. 

We offer two distinct options: brand new e-bikes and fully reconditioned, preowned e-bikes. Please note that all of our bikes undergo an extremely thorough inspection process from our mechanic team. They are inspected when they enter our warehouse, then fully assembled and tuned-up, and lastly tested one more time once they are purchased. 

We source our bikes through a variety of channels, whether that's from consumers like you, bike shops, manufacturers, or other businesses!

Both, brand-new, and certified-pre-owned e-bikes have their advantages, and this article will help you understand the differences to make an informed decision.

Brand New, Never-Owned e-Bikes:

  • You will be the first person to ever use the bike, meaning it will be devoid of any sorts of scratches or small dings
  • Our new bikes are priced lowest on the market, at much lower levels than official dealers can sell their bikes at
  • These bikes are typically sold to us as overstock from a bike shop or through a partnership with a manufacturer

Reconditioned, Preowned e-Bikes

  • Preowned e-bikes are more affordable, making them a great option for budget-conscious riders. They're a great way to purchase a premium bike that might be out of your price range if it was new.
  • By choosing a reconditioned e-bike, you contribute to reducing waste and supporting sustainable practices.

Whether you choose a brand new or a fully reconditioned, preowned e-bike from Upway, you're guaranteed a quality product that meets your expectations. If you have any questions or need assistance in making your decision, our team is always here to help.
