Not a Power Assisted Pedal Cycle ..beware the importers/dealers claims
I refer to your application ADDEND3898 for 32 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020A and
ADDEND3899 for 17 2016 Ningbo A-OK ES-020 lodged on 6 September 2016.
Due to a number of enquiries from other jurisdictions, the Department has recently
reviewed the assessment of power assisted pedal cycles, as defined in the Australian
Design Rules (ADR) vehicle categories. For a vehicle to be determined a power
assisted pedal cycle (AB) category vehicle and be eligible for importation under the
Non Road Vehicle import option it must be a pedal cycle to which one or more
auxiliary propulsion motors are attached and must not exceed a 200watt power output.
The only exception to this requirement is for a “Pedalec” which may have a 250watt ...
Puri Ebike, Are they legal?
A great Ebike and great value, but can we ride them? Unfortunately claims by the company that the Ebike does not require a licence or registration is somewhat misleading, as senior traffic police in Victoria clearly disagree, asserting that the Ebike is a motorbike. Police have issued tickets for Puri Ebike Users, for unlicensed, unregistered and fail to wear a motorcycle helmet, on numerous occasions. Puri claim on their website and management will verbally tell you that the Ebikes are legally classified as pushbikes etc. However, when pres...sed they will then tell you that you must peddle at all times when riding in Victoria to be classified as a bicycle. Police however are arguing that the Ebikes cannot be ridden primarily by solely peddling, therefore when being operated, the electric motor is the primary source of power and therefore a motorbike. Again, the courts will tend to accept the police officers assertions that the Ebikes are motorbikes, even though the law is quite ambigious and needs to be challenged in the Supreme Court for legal interpretation and clarification of the legal definition of a bicycle. DON'T BUY THESE BIKES WITHOUT A WRITTEN GUARANTEE that they are legal, etc. from Puri. Most police don't worry about policing the Ebike, the exception is officers from the Victorian State Highway Patrol, previously known as the State Highway Patrol. A WORD OF WARNING!!!! IF YOU ARE EVER INTERCEPTED BY POLICE FOR RIDING AN EBIKE, IMMEDIATELY START RECORDING THE CONVERATION ON YOUR PHONE. EVEN IN 2016, some police officers will lie and perjure themselves to try and sustain a charge/s. Sadly, magistrates still ACCEPT police evidence, when it's only your word versus the police. In NSW, the Puri Ebikes and other similar electric Ebikes are not legal, as the bicycle seat on a bike must be adjustable. DO NOT BUY AN EBIKE TO RIDE ON NSW PUBLIC ROADS. The Puri Ebikes are a great bike, great value and a lot of fun to ride, however don't think you are legally guaranteed to lawfully ride them on a public road in Victoria.
Use it to commute from Essendon to Docklands furthest trip was Essendon to Brighton return
In the first year returned it 3 times for battery problems. Stranded many times as battery lasted nowhere long enough to return home, they replaced ^faulty^ batteries relunctantly n only bcos I threatened legal action. My bike has been out of action since I called the police after the mechanic assaulted me throwing me out bcos i would not accept another makdshift battery which all have failed leaving me stranded. They only guaratee the battery now for 3 mnths w a replacement costing THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS. Batteries are dreadful expensive and ...fail completely. The company refused to finally give me a battery at all saying they didnt have any. Dreadful dishonest service decord they are a shonky business the bikes look n ride well but lites fail often n getting repairs involves taxis back n forth to outer suburb Heidelberg w no repairs being completed. Do not buy one if you plan to use it more than once a week for max distance of 30km trip it w die on you. Reported them to consmer affairs for bad service and exhorbitant charges etc, if u get a puncture a tyre n tube costs ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS AUSTRALIAN. No companies stock their tyre wheel sizes in Australia so 18 mnths later i still cannot get a new battery. Do not trust their male mechanic, the manager is lovely n honest but he is a crook n violent n dishonest horrible experience

Know better, choose better.
great for getting about locally..home- work- shopping- home.. but I wouldnt plan a trip around Aus...you'd need a real long extension cord for that..'not an impossible task...but pretty close to it!' When you DO get your 'hog'... go around..check the nuts n bolts...etc..I would buy a decent cover for it..in a bit of a breeze the cover comes off...aside from that...pedaling is a pain in the AR...rear!..it would be easier if it had more that ONE speed!!
Purchased at Puruebikes.
Appalling Customer Service/advice etc
I wouldn't buy from this company at all, when I went to look at purchasing their bikes, the woman was really cagey about giving me much information, was pretty dismissive/rude and left me feeling no confidence if anything was to go wrong. Other reviews have said that they've had problems with communicating & getting parts. Do your homework people, there are other models out there. I've just been to ME bikes in Port Melbourne - customer service outstanding and I"m already looking at purchasing from them!
Y Series Value for money
These are a great value for money unit .29 KPH . Over 40 KLM range (easily).We are just over 60ish we use them all over local area , shopping , kite flying and just local cruising .We ( 4 of us ) joke about being the electric OMCG .Whilst riding to be legal in Victoria, pedals must be turned to appear to be primary pedal power . To easy .In Victoria , legal on the road , legal on bicycle shared walking tracks etc as long as pedals are turned .29.4 KPH on my GPS . In Europe they are switched to 35KPH . Too many people looking for negatives . At ...this price , there aren,t any . Light weight , range , looks ( we get a lot of comments on how good they look ) Must be left on charger when not in use .( This costs very little as it is a float charger )
