Normal Looking Speed-pedelec w/Throttle Options

I'm interested in finding an ebike that's a mix between California's Class 2 and Class 3 identifications, basically one that has a throttle capable of up to 20mph and pedal assist when greater than 20mph. Do any like this exist?

Basically, my ideal bike would be one that:
  • Looks like a normal street or mountain bike with the battery nicely integrated into the down bar
  • Is a smooth ride
  • Has a good amount of power for going up hills (you can't go anywhere around here without climbing a hill)
  • Has a throttle mode (the faster, the better - though not faster than 20mph)
  • Is able to go faster than 20mph in pedal assist mode
Price isn't important at this point in time. Any suggestions? Any new models expected to be released within the next few months?

Thanks, but I'm looking for a less noticeable battery.

The Easy Motion Nitro City looks interesting!
Can't say I'm much of a fan of the battery design on the Juiced Cross Current though.

Thanks, Ravi mentioned the same one. I'll be adding it to my narrowed down list of bikes to consider. :)

I think I'm beginning to lean more towards a mountain bike because they have better suspension (front & rear), but it seems most of them don't have a battery that is flushly integrated into the down bar, or doesn't also have a throttle mode. :/

Anyway, I appreciate the responses! Any other suggestions?

I'd have to say the Easy Motion Evo 27.5 Jumper is the closest I've found to what I'm looking for.

Not a fan of the color scheme or the split cross bar, but it has full suspension, a seem-less battery integration, and a throttle option. Unfortunately, it's a much older model, is only 350w motor, and only reaches 20mph.

The newer 2016+ models have apparently removed the throttle options... :/

The 2015 models are still great bikes. 350W is more like nominal output of the motor. It puts out ~700W peak.
Also, unlike Bosch, Brose or Yamaha, there is not sharp cut-off of 20mph.

Have you been able to test ride one?
Just comparing specs can give very skewed understanding of E-bikes.

Unfortunately no, it's been very cold around here still and I'm only aware of 1 bike shop that may carry a few Specialized ebikes, nothing else.
