Battle of the 28mph: Quick E+ vs Redux IE

Both bikes feel great. Both are powerful. The Quick E+ Yamaha motor is like a rocket engine. The Redux IE Brose motor is 'softer' in it's activation. Both get the job done. If you were to ignore rider preferences and look at both bikes for what they are, which one is a better pick?

Both Raleigh and Giant are 'giants' of the industry but who makes the better ebike?

Same battery capacity, power, number of assist levels.

Giant's advantages:
Cheaper by 100 bucks
Comes with fenders and lights
Dual chain rings (20 speed)

Lighter by 1.5 pounds
Stealth appearance

Giant appears more utilitarian and more of a commuter setup. Raleigh appears more for fun and sport with lesser practicality (no fenders, no lights).
