Because ebike riders are a cross between cyclist and mobility scooter user?Many valid points have been made in this thread and thanks for all the input. I should also add that I did change to Marathon Plus tires with thorn resistant tubes & Tannus Armour and have had no flats since. This is a modification I chose to make out of necessity. An e-bike is a cross between a bicycle and a motorcycle. Why are they shipped with OEM tires designed for a bicycle?
The subject of flats is discussed FAR less on motorcycle forums than it is here and on other e-bike forums. That in itself should be enough to indicate a problem.
