Many countries are gradually banning gas powered motorcycles (including cars). Although electric is not the best clean energy at present, manufacturers have to make compromises without finding a better alternative energy. After all, in order to survive, they can only turn to electric.

Is an electric dirt bike street legal?
Legality of Electric Dirt Bikes Around the World
Technically, electric dirt bikes are not motor vehicles because they are neither bicycles nor motorcycles, although they have electric motors.
One issue affecting the road legality of electric dirt bikes is whether the vehicle is legally used and parked according to local regulations. This varies by cities.
For example, Singapore classifies electric bikes as Personal Mobility Devices (PMD). Allow them to travel at top speeds of 10 km/h on sidewalks and 25 km/h on shared paths (bicycle use). Driving only on sidewalks is prohibited. The weight of the ebikes must be less than 20kg and the width must be less than 70cm. Obviously it not road legal in Singapore for electric dirt bikes.
Meanwhile, South Korea’s Road Traffic Act classifies the electric dirt bike as a motorcycle. And require to wear a helmet while driving on the road. Entrants must be at least 16 years old and hold a two-wheeled motor vehicle driver’s license.
Electric Dirt Bikes and other battery powered vehicles are considered e-bikes under Japanese traffic regulations. Therefore, it must be equipped with a license plate and side mirrors.
The legality of ebikes is different in the US: West Hollywood, California bans ebikes on sidewalks. Columbia, South Carolina, implemented a one-year ban starting in January 2019. In Nashville, Tennessee, electric motorcycles are completely banned.
In UK, the Motorway Act 1835 made it illegal to ride an electric dirt bike on pavements. The Road Traffic Act 1988 also stipulates that it is an offence to drive an electric dirt bike on the road unless the user holds a driving licence, insurance, helmet and licence plate.
After the ban on electric bikes in December 2018, the Madrid government changed its tune. With 18 of the 25 companies that applied for licenses being granted licenses for 8,600 ebikes.
In May 2019, Germany lifted its ban on the electric dirt bike, allowing it to be used on roads and bike lanes. But its use on sidewalks is prohibited. Riders must be at least 14 years old and maintain a speed limit of 20 km/h.
Currently, it is illegal to use electric motorcycles or e dirt bikes on public roads in Ireland. Because they are classified as “mechanically propelled vehicles” and are subject to regulations such as road tax and insurance.
But, this era is about to come to an end.
Electric bicycles have become an increasingly popular form of personal travel. Many countries are considering new bills to allow e-bikes to be used legally in public places and to set safety standards that off-road vehicles must meet.
The legislation will clearly define how and where e-bikes and e motorcycles can be used. These vehicles will not be required to pay taxes, insurance and a driver’s license.
