E-bikes – legal aspects

Various regulations were adapted in 2012 in order to keep up with the technical development of e-bikes and to increase safety. An e-bike is legally regarded as a “motor-assisted bicycle” Art. 18 of Regulations on the Technical Demands for Road Vehicles (VTS). The differences are as follows:

  • Motor-assisted bicycles (Art. 18 para. b no. 1 Regulations on the Technical Demands for Road Vehicles (VTS)) i.e. one-seater electric bicycles with a maximum power of 0.5 KW, achievable without muscle power (i.e. via pure engine power) and a “construction determined” maximum speed up of up to 20 km/h, and that can reach a speed of up to a maximum of 25 km/h with pedal assistance;
  • Other motor-assisted bicycles (Art. 18 para. a no. 2 Regulations on the Technical Demands for Road Vehicles (VTS)) i.e. one-seater, single-track electric bicycles with a maximum power of 1 KW and a “construction determined” maximum speed of up to 30 km/h, and that can reach a speed of up to a maximum of 45 km/h with pedal assistance.

The rules have been clearly summarised by FEDRO (ASTRO in the following leaflet
