Did you see it in store for that price??
That’s one classy looking bike!
No pedals, so can only be used on private land.

To comply with electric assisted pedal bicycle regulations, it must have pedals, and the motor must only operate when the pedals are being turned.

For road use, it must have pedals that can be used to propel it, and the motor must be 250 watt or less (and clearly marked so), and only provide powered assistance when pedalled and cut out at 15.5mph. Otherwise it is an untaxed, unMOTed, uninsured motor vehicle if used on the road.


Electric cycles made before the rules were brought in line with the EU in about 2015 (I think) were allowed to have a throttle which would allow them to be ridden without pedalling, but still had to have pedals and then could only be 200 watt max.

There's more to it than that - it's illegal!

But why take the risk given the potential fine and points on your licence.

If you want to ride on the road, buy a road legal electric bicycle with pedals on, or a legal e-bike conversion kit for a regular bike.

Pedals are also handy when the battery goes flat.

Police sometime do give a monkeys:-

Like when I'm driving I probably *technically* break the law multiple times on every journey. You may get caught, but most people take the risk of going through an amber light even though they could have stopped safely because the benefits outweigh the risks.

If you take that attitude to the law, why not drive a junker on cloned plates and save on tax and insurance while you are at it, even if you get caught you would have to be very unlucky to pay more overall in fines than you'd save in insurance, MOT, tyres etc and somebody else would get your speeding and parking tickets.

It's basically a pared down mobilty scooter, should be fine to drive around local streets, through the shopping centre and into larger supermarkets. Just keep off the dual carriageway

Mobility scooters are limited to 4mph on pavements, or 8mph for road use and for road use must have indicators etc, and I think there are restrictions on who can use them...
Who's motorcycle is this?
there is exactly same one with pedals on bangood/gearbest

Blah blah every Electric Scooter/Bike/Skateboard/Segway there's some sheep talking about dated laws so it's illegal God forbid someone being able to ride something what's environmental friendly, legal in a lot of countries and is basically no faster than a bicycle, most are a lot slower

Benefits outweigh the risks? Running red light and breaking the law is jeopardising other people's lives I've seen so many accidents and deaths due to idiotic thinking like this.
The biggest legal rush for these is if you're involved in some kind of accident, especially if someone is injured. No insurance, no tax no MOT, likely no wearing a certified motorcycle helmet, I would presume you wouldn't have the correct motorcycle licence and wouldn't have L plates otherwise, no comeback or defence.
If a pedestrian steps out in front of you your in for a whole world of pain.

Small electric vehicles need to be legalized for so many good reasons, but until then I'll have to pass, shame.

Trouble is we keep getting people making stupid claims like they are 98% legal and you'll never get stopped by the police...

I can at least see the appeal for someone wanting to use a tiny mini scooter on the road as you could fold it up and carry it when you reach your destination, this on the other hand isn't any better in that respect to a proper fully road legal E-bike, which would likely be safer and nicer to ride on the road and without risk of fines and points on you licence.


You should only consider riding this thing on the road if you can figure out a way of attaching a belt or chain drive to the back wheel and adding a cadence sensor, and any other mods needed to make it safe and legal, otherwise you'd be daft.

Well yeah see what you mean probably best to either get s Electric Scooter or just a bike with pedals since I can ride E Scooter with no power, this you'll have to push it home if you run out of battery

Though who said anything about fully legal e bike if I was going to get a e bike it would definitely have pedals but it will hopefully go faster 15mph
Thing is those legal E Bikes are so expensive for some reason, I'll think I'll just get a E Scooter much cheaper and hopefully one day government catches up and makes it legal than there could be services like Bird in USA
