Here’s a bike that you are unlikely to see in North America any time soon. This is an example of what happens when politicians of the “nanny state” want to protect the public from ourselves. I first heard about it from an Australian poster who needed something he could legally ride on public bike paths.

Since it’s a pedelec, you only get E-power if you are pedaling, so no tickets from police with itchy “ticket writing” fingers who see you accidentally speeding along while you are not pedaling…because you installed a throttle and are using more than the allowed limit! (200W in Australia/Europe, 500W in Canada, 750W in the USA)

This was no uninformed newbie, it was endless-sphere.com senior poster Kepler who has built up a 125V Stealth Fighter! (featured here) A typical upgrade for an off-road system would be using 72V, but as they say…once you’ve had a taste of  power, it can be addictive!

The pic above shows the full-suspension frame, but the E-motion Jumper product line can also be had in a more affordable hardtail, in either a top-bar or step-through frame, and it’s also available in carbon-fiber.

The front wheel has a quick-release axle and since it’s coupled with a disc brake, the front wheel is very easy to quickly remove for transport on a car-carrier, or for storage.

The battery is somewhat small at 9-Ah, but it is built into the frame, making this E-bike very stealthy.

  1. “This is an example of what happens when politicians of the “nanny state” want to protect the public from ourselves.”

    Yeah maybe but far more likely they want to protect income streams related to Australians’ addiction to motor vehicles.

  2. Clean, but borrrrring design. If distributed with max allowable W’s and V’s for respective markets and proven reliability, it’d be OK, but not worth more than 2.5k Can.

  3. The complete Easy Motion Electric Bike line up is available in North America and E-Motion is actively looking for qualified dealers. I know this as I’m a rep for the company.

    The feedback from IBD’s and E-Bike specialty stores has been awesome. And the price range starts from $2499 and goes to $3999 for the Jumper.

    The pedal assist is excellent and you can certainly get the bike over 20MPH if you desire, the question becomes: “How fast can you pedal?”

    Know anyone who wants to become a dealer?

  4. These are seriously nice bikes and have a great pedal assist system. Actual power even at the Aust /EU 250W setting feels reasonable and definitely peaks at double this under load. Problem is the 25kph (16mph) speed limit. Sure you can try and pedal it to a bit more speed but keep in mind you now pedaling a 20kg (44lb) bike so traveling quicker then 25kph is actually harder work then on a non assisted bike.

    I presume the bike can be reprogrammed to meet US laws. At 750W and 25mph speed limit, the bike would be a gem.
