Eugene company imports electric-powered motorcycles

Speed demons may want to look elsewhere.  The Ubco 2018 2×2 is classified as a moped by the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles. It has a top speed of 30 miles an hour on a level road.
The motorbikes aren’t suitable for highways, but they are ideal for in-town trips and for off-road use, said Ethan Ralston, the president and chief executive of Ubco Bikes US.  “We are definitely breaking ground for a new type of vehicle in the U.S.,” he said.  With its moped classification in Oregon and other states, people only need a driver’s license to operate the new Ubcos on streets.
