Question by detrich2004: What are the Michigan laws on licensing and riding ebikes on the streets?
Im considering buying an electric bike (1000 watts/ 1 hp) and Im wondering what the laws are on riding them in the streets of michigan. Im thinking it would be the same as electric scooter law. But I dont know what they are.

In California a 1000 watt e-bike would have to be licensed and registered. You would also have to have a driver’s license to ride it. I have a 600 watt which is considered a bicycle in CA. It does not require registration nor a DL to ride it. Google X treme ebike for info on your state.
