250watts and also throttle.

Postby leovendramini » Sat Nov 21, 2015 9:43 am

Lately I have seen selling on Ebay several 250w bikes that also include a throttle .I thought 200w was the maximum allowable power if a throttle was also included.Personally,I am not complaining about this new trend.My next E bike will be of the new sort as I am convinced a throttle will be handy starting from standstill on a fully laden bike and facing a hill before me.

It is relevant to specify the jurisdiction in these sorts of posts.

I did check if it was posted in a state sub-group and it isn't. But even if it had been it should be stated. Clearly and simply.

How about editing your OP now, just for the thickoe's like trailgumby and me.

I don't think the jurisdiction matters - Anyway, throttles are legal up to 6kph on 250w EN15194 compliant pedelecs.
