Looks like this Vanmoof V can make you feel like an equal part of traffic. Current Canadian regulations limit e bikes to 500 watts and a top speed of 20 MPH. They are not suitable to mix with traffic. This will discourage people from buying a low powered e bike that is only good for limited recreational use on quiet residential streets and bike paths. If 1000 watts was allowed they would be practical for commuting and mixing with cars.
