Speed Pedelec

Speed Pedelecs are electric bicycles that have higher powered motors. Standard ebikes have motors that assist up to 15.5mph and max power of 250W. However, Speed Pedelecs are capable of assisting up to 28mph, with a power rating usually of 500W or higher. Because of this increased power and speed capability, they are classed legally as a moped. Like a moped, they can be ridden by any rider 16 or over who has either passed a CBT course or has category AM or P on their existing driver license.
