In Canada the Rize web site lists the Leisure Step as having a only a 500 watt motor vs 750 in the US! That may be a reflection of Canadian regs that limit the power to 500 watts. Anyone know if the Canadian versions are just software limited to 500 watts or are they really using 2 different motors in these bikes? Both US and Canadian bikes share the 80 nM torque spec so that makes me think its a software modification. If it is just a software coding issue, can that be modified to allow the motor to operate at full 750 watt power here in Canada? On the other hand the Rise X has the same 750 watt spec'd motor in both countries, so that doesn't fit the above logic ... Appreciate any insight!
