Instrument Type:  
Power-Assisted Bicycles (e-bikes) Motor Disengagement

The Ministry of Transportation has made regulatory amendments to HTA Regulation 369/09 (Power-Assisted Bicycles) to allow for continued motor engagement when braking is applied. As a result, manufacturers will no longer require a "kill switch" to be installed in order to disengage the motor. This change allows for newer technology e-bikes to be used, reduces the regulatory burden, responds to requests from industry stakeholders and potentially benefits consumers by reducing the need for cost
