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.
