If you use your electric bike commuting only, it probably won’t need frequent cleaning, once a month would be fine. If you use it on paved and clean roads, once every two months may still be okay. But don’t delay the cleaning of your e-bike any longer than two months.

Mud, dust, and other particles will accumulate in the chain. You will immediately notice that pedaling becomes harder. Also, dirt accumulates in rotating parts, which causes excessive friction. Likewise, dirt affects the performance of the electronic circuits and, more critically, the battery.
