This is a moped, an e-scooter, or a mini motorcycle...Pick one ! This is NOT AN E-BIKE !! No way any day. It's stuff like this
that gives responsible e-bikers and their true e-bikes a bad name.

I have nothing against a 'vehicle' like this, just call it what it is and it's not an e-bike !!! Don't ride it on a respected safe bike trail
or speed down a Rails to Trails.
