So this'll be imported from the USA, with pretty high duties/VAT to be paid?

I think the green "kiwi" is a fantastic colour.

Having a look at their website, I came across this in the FAQs

For our friends in Europe and other places, we will be sending the Babymaker with a 250w rated motor and EU compliant speed limit. Motors up to 250w nominal power are legal in most countries. We'll be tuning the 250W version for max performance - you will be hard pressed to notice any difference in performance. The speed limit can be programmed to comply with local laws.
