Default Re: Ontario Bike Engine Owners

I'm bumping this up because my mom called me and told me someone in Kitchener where she is got fined $500 from a cop who decided he was gonna be a jerk. Told the guy he needed to insure it and that. I've been down that road. You cannot insure a mountain bike with a simple motor on it. The insurance companies need a make , model and year. You use the clutch handle and it becomes a bike.. It has a motor but at the end of the day it's still a fully functioning mountain bike. I would gladly insure it if possible.

I looked over the Mto site and these bikes neither fall into the E bike's or the moped's. It's in between and in a grey area of the road law. Has anyone heard anything new on the laws regarding these motor's ?
