1000 watts is completely legal in the US. I peddle mine every mile I go. You can stand up, lean, tilt to the right and left, drop your head over the bars for less wind drag and look like a real real race pro, and do it all in skin tight spandex if that's you're style. Seems like an awful lot of wasted energy just to get down the street lol. If I wanted to work that hard I would go back to riding analog bikes. I'm done with this idiot discussion. I'm going riding.I thought the American federal and local laws allowed up to 750 Watts. Sure, if someone wants to ride an illegal e-motorcycle, let them do it. Only such people are not "cyclists".
P.S. People who have hijacked this thread are on the Ignore now.
