Helping you out

Try Before You Buy

Want to try a SmartMotion electric Bike for a while before deciding if it’s something you would like to buy.  At Cairns Electric Bikes we have the SmartMotion E-City, Essence, E20 and E-Urban bikes in our rental fleet. Book one for 2 hours, a day or even up to one week.  If you choose to purchase we will refund 50% of the hire fee as a credit towards your new bike.

For other bikes, you are still able to trial them around the block with the assistance of our sales staff.


Price Match

Our prices are set to country standards. If you see the price cheaper on our supplier site? Then let us know and we will match the price. (Note: price match will need to be assessed individually and price match is granted at CEB discression). This applies to all bikes and e-scooter we sell.



As a small business we offer the long standing traditional layby option. Pay of the bike in installments and collect the bike once the price is fully paid out. Time frame for layby is up to 2 months. Talk to us if you would like to make arrangements for a longer time frame.


SmartMotion E-City


The SmartMotion eCity electric bike / ebike is not only fantastic value, it is super comfortable and easy to ride with plenty of power from the rear wheel to get you up those hills.  It is a great commuter or city bike featuring upgraded Shimano Altus 8 shifters, integrated lights and extra plush seat with suspension seat post. It also features an integrated USB charge port in the battery for charging cell phones, etc and an extra large 15Ah battery for lots of range.

Differences from the lesser eMetro

  • Rear wheel drive vs. front wheel drive
  • Front fork suspension vs. rigid forks
  • Integrated front battery powered light vs. reflector only
  • Bigger battery pack (15ah vs. 10ah)
  • LCD travel computer / speedo / odometer etc. vs. nothing
  • Pedal activated throttle vs. throttle
  • 8 speed derailleur (better on hills) vs. 3 speed internal hub (better on flat)
