Forums > Living in Kunming > 48V E-Bike - everything above considered illegal!

@Alexez: The last three lines were just my imagination, the rest was true. ;)

Big Brother aka Gov
Big Ones aka Bikes over 48V

@Xiefei: You could be right (i hope so!), but you also could be wrong. China is improving quickly, there's a fifty-fifty chance. But Kunming is still on another page. :)

@Xiefei & HFCampo: Thanks for the links! One very interesting point i found in the one for Kunming:

"。。。并告知消费者所销售的电动自行车是否列入昆明市电动自行车产品目录》。"

"...and inform the consumer that the e-bike they're going to sell is included in the catalog of Kunming City electric bicycle products."

"同时要求禁止销售不符合国家标准的电动自行车"

"At the same time required to prohibit the sale of electric bicycles whom do not meet the national standard."

Soooo, how is that enforced recently?

Colleague bought a new bike just yesterday, because his was stolen the night before. I told him my story, he nodded accompanied by a "没事" and went off to buy the new 80V scooter.

Of course the merchant told him, that he just can sell the 48V mini-princess-version, which also is very cheap.
The big ones have to be scrapped within a month, without compensation from big brother.

That's why i totally agree with HFCAMPO in the last point he made!

@lemon lover: I agree with you about the safety question, there should be some traffic-education before you can ride. But traffic-education is nearly non-existence here, should be start in school! That a 72V scooter is faster than a 48V is completely bollocks. For example, a 48V one with a 500-700W machinery and let's say 45-50Ah instead of the standard 20Ah will go much faster and might even go further than a 72V 20Ah with 350W machinery. If you so worried about lethal e-shocks, i think China might not be the right place for you. ;)

Chinese New Year we will visit my parents-in-law on the countryside like every year. Let's check what did improve there over a year...in comparision to Kunming or even smaller towns. Maybe they got some new meters of asphalt or some bricks to repair their houses. They're still years behind and no big changes in sight. Still the people there don't complain!
