Which bikes come with a belt drive and why?

A Belt Drive is a great option for an eBike but does not work with every available motor configuration due to a variety of limitations.  A Belt Drive system requires no maintenance or lubrication and is rated for 10,000 Miles before it needs to be replaced. A chain should be replaced every 1,500 Miles or so and does require regular cleaning and lubrication.
