Insights

Can you travel with unlocked e-bikes above 25km/h in Italy?

Yes, provided that after such modification (or purchase) you provide for all the resulting regulatory obligations, comparable to a moped. And the warranty expires.

In summary: a bike that speeds above 25km/h, often without even the help of muscle propulsion, is not really a bicycle but an electric scooter and is also classified as such at a regulatory level. The Highway Code, in fact, places electric bikes in the L1eB category, the same as mopeds.

As with other autonomous vehicles, registration, approval, license plate, license and insurance are required to drive an electric bicycle. It is also mandatory to wear a helmet when riding. Finally, the electric bike must be equipped with a rear-view mirror and headlights. Another detail to take into consideration: the warranty of this vehicle expires.

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
