with ebikes does more torque mean you waste less energy reaching the desired speed?
because the motor draws the max current until it reaches the desired speed?

You'll reach top speed faster, but you'll waste as much energy as ever. My suggestion is to use your own energy and stay fit by riding a real bike, not an electrified one.

You don’t get that torque for free.
It comes from the motor pulling more amps, making more power. Power x time = energy.
Spending more power to shorten time doesn’t change the energy usage.

Your e-bike does 65 mph. You don't. When you start adding electric assist motors and/or internal combustion engines it ceases to be a 'bicycle'. "A vehicle consisting of a light frame mounted on two typically wire-spoked wheels one behind the other and usually having a seat, handlebars for steering, brakes, and two pedals by which it is driven." https://www.thefreedictionary.com/bicycle
Bicycles are solely powered by human energy. Yours is not. Therefore, disqualifies this as being a 'cycling' question.

@?, my ebike does 65mph
@Raleigh, it's a tax free, license free 65mph vehicle and costs 13 cents to go 50 miles
I'm also a mountain biker I bike 40 mile rides after a lot of coffee.
Where do you find these meme's did you download a pack lol.
@D20 I think a 35 N.m. torque motor spends max current for around 17 seconds to go from 0-55mph and uses max current to reach that speed before lowering and a 230 N.m. motor takes 5 seconds. So I'd say you're saving dramatically especially if you ride in the city stopping and starting a lot.

E-bikes are for wimps. Sigh...roll eyes. 🙄
