If you turn the electronics totally off, the bike can be ridden like a normal bike. It is a little harder to pedal as there is more weight from the electronics system. The motor has a freewheeling clutch so there is very little drag from the motor when no power is used.
The bike's transmission is quite tall and as a result more difficult to ride without power. Our gear ratio is set up with the assumption that some power is used 99.9% of the time. This way you can enjoy easier pedaling at e-bike cruising speed.
