aren’t the words “… used to exclusively propel…” the crux of the Class 2 issue? The motor cannot exclusively propel class 1 or class 3.It appears motorized land conveyance is not defined. I assumed it was a reference to "conveyance" (transport) on "motorized land" but after looking at this judgement it seems to refer to "motorized" vehicles that provide "conveyance" (transport) on "land" (as opposed to water, air, etc.):
Going back to the adjuster's reply:
After re-reading this, it seems their issue is not simply throttle. They seem to be saying it's a motorized land conveyance because it is equipped with a motor that can be used to exclusively propel the bicycle. Under the same logic walk mode would make a class 1 ebike a motorized land conveyance.
I would counter that bike is deemed to be a non-motorized vehicle (under state law) and furthermore that you can propel it without motor assistance (does not rely solely or exclusively on assistance of the motor or throttle).
