The autonomy is very difficult to measure, because it depends on many different parameters, such as the motor power, the weight of the bike, the rider, and the luggage.
The differences in altitude also play an important role.
According to our tests we have found that with the 500w kit and an average towed weight of 110kg (bike, rider, luggage included) we can do about 50 to 60 km on a route including 1000m of positive and negative altitude difference
In Switzerland the legislation allows you to ride a converted bike without registration (yellow moped plate) up to 500w of engine power, and 25km/h of assistance (this does not concern the limit at which you can ride, you must respect the road traffic law in all cases)
If you exceed the assistance limit of 25km/h or 500w of engine power you can only use your bike on private property.
If you wish to ride on public roads with a motor of more than 500w or 25km/h, you must have your bike inspected by the motor vehicle department of your canton of residence. Before making such a purchase, please contact the motor vehicle department of your canton of residence for information.
Here you will find a list of the permitted regulations for electric bicycles.

If the battery is left without charge for a long period of time, the battery may be ruined, the warranty will also be lost if after inspection it is found that it is due to a slow and prolonged discharge.
