Merseyside Police has posted the following on Twitter:

The rider of this electric bike failed to stop after being seen travelling at speed. Turns out he is disqualified from driving after a drug drive offence. As the bike has a 1500w motor it classes as a vehicle so now the rider will be prosecuted for disqualified driving.

Yes the bike has been seized
 

8:20am Aug 10

Is rider also being prosecuted for lack of insurance, lights, number plates, etc?

Who sells these in the UK? Do they say they are illegal on the roads/cycle paths, or has this one been modified?

Interesting questions.
