Motorcycle Knowledge Base: Why Can’t Motorcycles & Mopeds Match The 45?

It was sold in Europe as a plug-in Talaria TL3000 A question was received regarding how this versatile motorcycle can be if it has a speed of more than 45 km/h? It may seem like a legitimate question, but in reality the problem lies in the concepts used in common parlance, and of course in the value of 45 km/h…

First of all, the letter creates a good opportunity for clarification: There is no doubt that auxiliary engines can go up to 45. This is just some kind of urban legend, although KRESZ (paragraph 26) clearly states that:

In residential areas, bicycles, tricycles and scooters are allowed to travel at a speed of 40 km/h.

In other words, 45 km/h is not the maximum auxiliary engine speed, but rather the so-called design speed.

What is the concept of a utility motorcycle?

A motorcycle (abbreviated as: auxiliary engine) is a two-wheeled bicycle classified under the L1e category, with a design speed not exceeding 45 km/h, and a cylinder capacity not exceeding 50 cm3 in the case of an internal combustion engine, or a maximum continuous rated power of not more than 4 kilowatts in the case of an electric motor.

As you can see, the Talaria fulfills all of this: it has an uninterrupted power of 3.5 kW and a design speed of 45 km/h – and that’s how fast it can reach until the driver switches to Sport mode. So it’s up to the owner to comply, not the bike:

It seems strange for the leader to decide: Will it be legal? Well, not a little, because it’s the same with every big car and engine. Its top speed is higher than the permitted 90/130 km/h, and it also depends on the owners’ decision and composure whether they abide by the regulations and speed limits.

Schwalbs and Simsons aren’t even 40 or 45 either, but they are normal auxiliary engines. The rating is based on design, not top speed

Of course, it would be completely impractical for someone to be penalized by the police for driving 45 instead of 40 around town on the good old Schwalbe – or even the aforementioned electric motorcycle. After all, even when driving at 50, drivers regularly shun a normally driving engine, and what’s more, in some European countries, change is already poised to override a thousand-year-old rule. Recently, a petition was launched in Germany – with tens of thousands of signatories – Raising the maximum speed of the auxiliary engines to 60 km/h, Which, of course, can be used by motorcyclists where the maximum speed allowed is 60 or more.
