UK Government Says No to Turbo E-Bike

29th March 2012

Read it.

The government today confirmed that an electrically powered bicycle, may not be sold in this country because its top speed exceeds legal limits.

The Turbo e-cycle’s US-based creator, Specialized, was all set to peddle its first battery-equipped bike in coming months across the EU. But with a top assisted speed of 28mph, it will not be permitted in the UK, it has emerged.

We’re from the government, and we’re here to help … so long as you go slowly.
