EUROBIKE REPORT: Industry and gov't. start down road of standards and regulation

Ebike manufacturers and officials from the European Union attending Eurobike 2009 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, have agreed to meet further in order to discuss bringing reason and rationality to ebike standards and policies.

The industry wants Europe to re-examine the slow European speed limit of 25 km/h. Both sides want to look deeper into eScooters and the growing market of three-wheeled light electric vehicles.
