VanMoof to remove illegal US mode in e-bikes planned for EU market

AMSTERDAM, the Netherlands – VanMoof has announced that it will remove the US support mode of up to 32 km/h in its e-bikes intended for the EU market. The move comes after German cyclists were fined for unwittingly riding in the US support mode, which made the e-bike no longer legally compliant as a bicycle. A spokesman says VanMoof will announce more about the new policy later this month.
