Melbourne is slowing increasing their adoption of e-travel in and around the city! With the recent addition of the branded Lime and Neuron e-scooters you can zip around ( up to 20Kmh ) the bike lanes, bike paths, shared paths and roads. This is great news for melbourne commuters! But did you know private e-scooters are illegal to ride in and around melbourne (source: vicroads.vic.gov.au ) if they can travel more than 20Km/h or have a motor with a maximum output of 200w or more?
E-bikes however, have a limit of 250watts output and a speed of 25Km/h. “An EPAC (electrically power-assisted cycle) is a safe alternative mode of transport to a manual bicycle or passenger car. An EPAC has power assistance that allows a bicycle rider to travel further and ride with less effort.” – vicroads.vic.gov.au
We love seeing e-bikes in and around Melbourne!
