Ban this sick filth!

We're basically re-following the evolutionary path of motorbikes, but with electric motors. This is a light motorbike, a motorised pedal bicycle, a.k.a "moped". The original mopeds evolved and just got rid of the actual pedalling bit. E-bike Mopeds are going there too (esp in places like California).

This one even looks a lot like the Honda "Monkey bike" - the Z50 from the 60s and 70s.

This thing is actually faster than the legal limit for 50cc petrol engined mopeds (i.e. "bromfiets") in the NL!
