|Statistics and Overview|
A red Bike type Extreme Gear. Dr. Eggman's personal Extreme Gear.
The E-Rider (E-ライダー E-raidā?) is a recurring Bike type Extreme Gear in the Sonic Riders series. It is Dr. Eggman's character Extreme Gear and his default Extreme Gear. It is, however, not until Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity and onwards, that it becomes exclusive to Eggman, meaning only he can use it.
The E-Rider first appeared in Sonic Riders. According to its profile, it has high performance, but it burn too much Air. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Eggman, by completing the Babylon Story in Story Mode.
In Sonic Riders, the E-Rider resembles a red real-life sports bike. It has white highlights stretching across the midsection and the rear and has black wheels with white wheel covers.
Abilities and Traits
As a Bike type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders, the E-Rider is more powerful, but less maneuverable and less fuel efficient than most other types of Extreme Gears.
The E-Rider is of the more powerful gears in the game. Its major, and only detractor, however, is the fact that it burns an exorbitant amount of Aair at a rate of around double of that of a regular default Extreme Gear. Unlike most other character Extreme Gear in the game, the E-Rider can be used by other characters than Dr. Eggman.
Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity
The E-Rider reappeared later in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, where it could only be used by Dr. Eggman. According to its profile, the E-Rider had been built by Eggman in this game, with every detail of it reflecting the doctor's tastes. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Eggman, by completing the Babylon Story in Story Mode.
In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity the E-Rider is given a new design. In this game, it resembles more that of a cruiser motorcycle, with large exhaust pipes on each sides of the rear. It is mostly colored red, with a black area on the front and thin yellow highlights running down its sides.
Abilities and Traits
As a Bike type Extreme Gear in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the E-Rider is more powerful, but less maneuverable than most other types of Extreme Gears and allows its rider to crash through obstacles and barricades without slowing down, gaining Gravity Points (GP) for each destroyed obstacle.
Like other character exclusive Extreme Gears in the game, the E-Rider does not possess any unique abilities. However, it possesses Gear Parts that can increase its top speed and the amount of Gravity Points it can store.

Sonic Free Riders
The E-Rider made another reappearance in Sonic Free Riders. According to its profile, Eggman made and customized the E-Rider himself and just like in the previous title, reflects Eggman's tastes in its design. It is unlocked in the game, alongside Eggman, by completing the World Grand Prix mode.
In Sonic Free Riders, the E-Rider's design bears a close resemblance to its original design in Sonic Riders, thus once again resembling a sports bike, though it is instead mostly colored red with yellow highlights.
Abilities and Traits
As a Bike type Extreme Gear in Sonic Free Riders, the E-Rider is, like in Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, more powerful, but less maneuverable than most other types of Extreme Gears and allows its rider to punch through obstacles and barricades.
Like in the previous title, the E-Rider possesses no unique abilities of its own. It can only be equipped with one Gear Part, as the first slot is permanently set to Power.
- In the scene in Sonic Riders when Sonic chases Eggman back in Babylon Garden, the doctor is seen riding the E-Rider, but it is unknown where he put the Key to Babylon Garden and Amy while he was riding the E-Rider to the palace.
- In Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, the E-Rider is the only character Extreme Gear that has two Gear Parts where as the others have three (this may be due to the fact that the Gear starts out as a Bike where the other character Gears start out with boards and need to activate a Gear Part to be able to grind, air ride and smash through obstacles).
