Type-Approval Requirements for E-Bikes in Bike Europe White Paper Updated

BRUSSELS, Belgium - On 1 January 2017, the new type-approval, which includes most types of electric bicycles, enters into force. The only category excluded from type-approval and therefore classified as a bicycle, is the pedal assisted bicycle with assistance up to 25 km/h and maximum 250W. All other types, including so-called speed pedelecs or speed e-bikes, are in the type-approval.
The updated White Paper will be published this in the next few weeks. – Photo Bike Europe
