EV Moto with Bicycle Mode

I was looking at this electric moto The District

and on the page referenced above -> quote "E-bicycle performance (27MPH) in mode 1, to keep it legal as an e bicycle."

I then thought for commuting in our PNW metros to go into E-Bike mode and ride the shoulder, ride the bike lane, or cut through parks, etc.

Then when there is some open road and light traffic, kick into highway mode and cut back on the two / three lanes and jam on it.

I'm guessing that they won't go over well.

What's to stop the rider from switching to, or staying in, full power mode while rolling through a park?

Other than reduced noise over an internal combustion motorcycle, it would be no different than riding an IC motorcycle down the same path. Here in The States, pedestrians and bicycle folks aint gonna like it.

My thoughts.

There is already an issue with e bikes and me. They come by in the bike lane at twice my pedaling speed. The speed differential is hair raising at times.
