Suspension for hardtail?

#1
Cheers!
I have a Cube reaction hybrid pro 2019 with a SR Suntour XCM34 Coil, Tapered, 15x110mm, 100mm
The fork is like a bunny in the forest and i am thinking about replacing it.
Since this is a totaly new area for me (have not been on a bike for 15 years)
And i guess e-bikes should have other suspension than regular bikes because of the weight?
Any suggestions about what to buy?

I'm confused. You only want a new fork, or do you want something else? "And i guess e-bikes should have other suspension than regular bikes because of the weight?" There are two kinds of forks, spring and air. If you want more adjustability, go with air. Both can be locked out for no suspension. No bike "needs" suspension, it's a rider preference.

I’m a little confused too. By bunny in a forest, do you mean the front wheel is too “bouncy “?
Many front shocks are adjustable. Maybe your dealer can help.

First of all, even though ebike-specific forks exist, the jury is still out on whether or not they give the desired benefit, so I wouldn't worry about this too much.

Regarding what fork to get, you are looking for a tapered steerer fork; I'd go for about 120mm since you can always nudge the distance 2-3cm without significant effect on the headtube angle.

As far as what fork to get, this largely depends on the budget. I would, of course, recommend the Fox 34 "PLUS" fork but there's really so much choice here you'd have to be specific about your budget and expectations.
