Well there you go:

2. Power-assisted pedal cycle - maximum power output 250 watts (a ‘Pedalec’) A ‘pedalec’ is a vehicle complying with the requirements of European Standard EN 15194: 2009 or EN 15194:2009+A1:2009: ‘Cycles – Electrically power assisted cycles – EPAC Bicycles’. To comply with EN 15194:
• The motor must be electric
• The maximum continuous power output of the motor cannot exceed 250 watts measured at the wheel Note: A motor that delivers 250 watts of continuous power can produce greater power for very short periods of time, which can be beneficial when pulling away at traffic lights or starting a hill climb.
• The rider must pedal the cycle to activate the motor*
• The motor must cut-off once the vehicle reaches 25 km/h, or sooner if the rider stops pedalling
• The vehicle must be certified by the manufacturer, and labelled as complying with EN 15194. The label must include the manufacturer’s name, the motor’s cut-off speed in km/h and its continuous rated power in watts.
* Pedalecs may be equipped with an optional low-speed start-up mode that allows the motor to power the cycle up to 6 km/h. This mode is activated by the user either when riding without pedalling or when the user is pushing the cycle.
Now...where to find this "time" detail...

If you check out strava ebike rides on your local trails, the ones you know well, the power these bikes are putting out ain’t even close to 250w.. Way over especially uphill..
All the guys I know with commuter ebikes are way over the legal limit, bought from reputable shops in Melbourne. One even has a throttle to get the bike going so you don’t have to pedal to engage the motor initally.. It’s one of those rear hub drive units. Sits on 40-50km/h comfortably on his commute to work, with just him soft pedaling.
The stores selling these are a bit shit. The bloke in question had no idea his bike was not legal. Had no idea about the 25km/h assist limit either.. Thought he was doing the legal thing..

I'd go so far as to say the ones that are actually 'legal' get derestricted anyway. I'm talking about the off the shelf giants ,meridas, spesh etc. Either that or the bafangs quote peak power and not continuous. My 350w tzsd gets eaten alive by most 250 bikes out there - even the folks in step throughs commuting.

Yeah they are all pretty much derestricted but the reality of that doesn’t go down well with the e-cycling lobby.. The kenevo is a low power electric moto dressed up as a bicycle. I wonder how many warranty claims have actually been denied because of derestriction?
