When selecting an electric bike, you have to ensure you are picking what is best for you. From the size, pricing, and various specifications, there is a number to choose from. In this article, we will be narrowing our selections to just two bikes and making comparisons.
Battery and Motor
A KBO Bike battery life is one of its most significant advantages, rated for 900 complete charge cycles. A KBO Bike is powered with a continuous 750W brushless geared hub motor so that you won't have to worry about carrying heavy loads and climbing steep uphills. With an 840Wh battery capacity, you can ride up to 60 miles on a single charge while a Packa's dual battery system totals 1,228Wh and automatically use both to ensure you never have to stop when one battery runs out - giving you a range of up to 80 miles for long riding with heavy loading. The Packa Genie features a 48V dual battery system with an incredible 1,228Wh total capacity, using high-quality 18650 cells that give you up to 40 miles with a single battery and 80 miles per charge with dual batteries and 25,000 miles of battery lifetime. The powerful rear motor provides 750w of continuous power output and even higher peak output during short periods when needed - optimized for heavy loading and steep hills.
The Packa Genie Cargo bike is currently priced at around $1,999, while the KBO Electric Cargo Bike is priced at $1,699.
The Packa Cargo Bike comes with high-performance, reliable hydraulic disc brakes that provide you with plenty of stopping power in both wet and dry conditions, while the KBO Electric Cargo Bike has Mechanical Disc Brakes whose front and rear 180 mm disc rotors give sufficient braking force even in the roughest of conditions.
The KBO Electric Cargo Bike has an Integrated Brake Rear Light. The rear light is an integrated LED light that is powered by the battery pack. When you apply the brakes during a ride, the rear brake light illuminates immediately. The Packa Electric Cargo Bike also has an Integrated LED Brake Light. The front and rear lights are integrated into the frame and powered by the electric bike's battery. Activated during your ride, the rear light also has a built-in reflector and brake light that lights up when you brake.
Mounting/ Installation Points
With the Packa Genie Cargo Electric Bike, you can carry up to 200lbs in over 200 different combinations with the smart modular rack system.

The KBO Electric Cargo Bike is fitted with an intelligent mounting bracket that can support up to 50 pounds. You can load it in any way you choose.
With the Packa Genie Cargo Electric Bike, you can use the throttle to ride without pedaling at all. The throttle can be fully used at any assist level and makes it easy to start and stop when riding.
