There are two different categories of electric powered bicycles / tricycles in Australia
Power Assisted Bicycles (PABS)
The traditional category of Electric Bicycles and Tricycles is basic, straight forward and has a
200W motor output. The motor is activated by either a ‘twist grip accelerator’ OR by ‘pedal activation
Electric Powered Activated Cycles (EPAC)
The second category is 250W motor output where the motor is ONLY activated by 'pedal activation'. In short you MUST pedal at all times to activate the motor and if you STOP pedalling, the motor stops.
