ebike company out of Australia?

I saw a guy riding a ebike last week and it was insanely powerful. It must have been upwards of 4k watts, so more or less a small moto. Anyone know what brand this was?

Just interested, are 4k watt e-bikes road legal in Australia? I'm in the UK an we're capped to have motors no more 250w.

But the two most distinctive ones I can think of is a Vector and Dillenger. I'm sure if it was one of them you saw you'd remember it.

4kW e-bikes aren't legal anywhere AFAIK except "off road".

Dunno the name of the company, but I believe it's based in Tasmania. A mate was talking about these bikes the other day, passed one doing 80km/h...50mp/h.

You make it sound like a 14kw bike is some sort of opioid!

OF COURSE ITS LEGAL!

But its NOT a bicycle and has to follow local rules for registration if its ridden in public.

That makes sense otherwise they are just mopeds.
