UK Road Legal Electric Bikes

Road Legal E Bikes in the UK

In the UK, electric bikes are classified as either pedal-assist or throttle-assist. Pedal-assist e-bikes require the rider to pedal in order for the motor to provide assistance. Throttle-assist e-bikes, on the other hand, have a throttle that can be used to activate the motor without pedaling.

Pedal-assist e-bikes are legal in the UK as long as they meet certain requirements. These requirements include:

  • The motor must have a maximum power output of 250 watts
  • The motor must only provide assistance up to 15.5 mph
  • The bike must have pedals that can be used to propel it
  • The bike must have a maximum weight of 40 kg

Throttle-assist e-bikes, on the other hand, are not legal in the UK. This is because they do not require the rider to pedal and can reach higher speeds without any effort from the rider. Throttle-assist e-bikes are classified as mopeds and require registration, insurance, and a license to ride on public roads.
