Belleville – At approximately 7:00 P.M. on the 2nd of July a member of the Belleville Police Traffic Management Unit stopped a 25 year old male on Hwy 2 east of Belleville operating an E- bike at 66 KPH. The bike had been found to be modified so that it would travel at a rate of speed higher than that of the original factory specifications. Once an E-bike is modified in such a manner it no longer is considered an E-bike and falls under the category of an electric motorcycle. The male was charged with modifying the bike in such a manner and was further charged with suspended driving and operating a motor vehicle with no insurance. The bike was towed and the male will have a court date in August to answer to the charges. Owners of E-bikes are warned to be cognizant of the ramifications of modifying their bikes.
