It's now on the Canadian Giant site also, but it doesn't say that it's a 28mph bike like the US site says. I wonder if Canadian regulations limit the speed. I'd think that if the Canadian version of the bike also does 28mph, they would say so. That would be a great selling point.
It would be prohibitively expensive for me to buy a Giant bike in the US and then bring it into Canada. Duties and taxes are paid on the bike when it arrives in the US, and I'd have to AGAIN pay duties and taxes upon bringing it into Canada. Plus the dollar exchange rate is really poor. At the current exchange rate, the US$4,500 Road E+1 Pro would be $6,000 Cdn, while the Giant Canada price for it is only $5,000. And that's without adding on the duty that would have to be paid when bringing it into Canada. Easily about $1,500 more to do that than just to buy one in Canada.I'm in the US, Class 3 (28mph), but I think Canada is Class 1 (20mph) or less. Maybe you could buy in the US then register it as a moped and put a small license plate on it. No harm no foul. For Roadie's the 20 mph is no good because you can do that on a flat then you're just dragging a 37 lb anchor around.
