But then, what exactly is a speedbike?

The speedbike is an electrically assisted bicycle that is faster and more powerful than traditional eBike. Unlike these last, the speedbike is legally considered a 50 cc moped. Indeed, the assistance of the bike can go up to 45 km/h and is not limited to 25 km/h like a VAE because the power of the motor is no longer limited to 250 W nominal. For example, our road-legal LMX 64H has a rated motor power of 1.5 kW.

Something to have fun !

Why buy a speed bike ? What are the advantages compared to an e-bike ?

Lighter than a scooter or moped

If you take the LMX 64H and its featherweight 30 kg, a speedbike is 3 to 5 times lighter than a classic moped.

The grip is then made easy and accessible to all and its maneuverability allows you to find the sensations of riding and the speed of an enduro mountain bike, but with less effort on the climbs.

Your bike rides are extended in duration and distance !

Accessible to everyone

No need for a driver’s license, just the “Road Safety Certificate” which is accessible from 14 years old.

In addition, the speed bike is easy to transport because it loads quickly on a bike rack (no need for a trailer).

Discreet and quiet for a moped

Absences of engine noise and vibration allow riders to train and focus on lines, improvisation and fun, without disturbing their surroundings.

Say goodbye to noise pollution and carbon emissions !

No more frustration with the 25 km/h limit

Now you can indulge yourself with electric assistance of up to 45 km/h !

On the LMX 64H, the 2.5 kW of peak motor power is a treat.

LMX TIP : The LMX 64 has dual power assist because it has a twist grip on the handlebar! Ideal for making the most of all the power of the bike.

This functionality is made possible by the 45 km/h homologation.

Limited maintenance compared to a scooter

Maintenance is made easy, simple and limited (washing, greasing, and tires). Indeed, it is similar to that of a classic eBike. Operating costs are therefore reduced. Long live the savings !

Practice in urban environment

Easy to transport and park, the speedbike is perfect for getting to work and being fast around town, while having fun. It is even safer than a simple bicycle on a main road because there is almost no speed difference with cars and exposure to danger is therefore reduced. The floor space is also reduced, because it is less bulky than a scooter.

It’s also perfect for having fun on weekends off-road with good battery life : 850 Wh for the LMX 64H !
