The Preferred Electric Folding Bike in the UK

The very latest version of our flagship folding electric bike, the Wisper 806 has received a number of additions enabling you to tailor the bike to your own personal requirements. The Wisper 806 is the perfect option for campers, caravaners, boating enthusiasts, commuters or for those with restricted storage space. With it’s very low step over height the Wisper 806 is ideal for a shorter, however the huge adjustment range on the seat post and handlebar stem means the bike can easily be adjusted for the comfort of taller riders. Suitable for riders between 4’6″ and 6’6″!

The Wisper 806 is a sturdy long range e-bike. With our superb locking mechanism locked you will not notice you are on a folding bike, there is absolutely no frame twist feel when riding.

Tailor your Wisper 806 by choosing your preferred battery range, power delivery system and colour.

Why Choose A Folding eBike?

Perfect to carry you through the city or countryside with minimal effort. When you’re not using your bicycle, just unlock the hinge and store until you need to ride your bicycle again. Lightweight and durable, the Wisper 806 can be carried on and off public transport. Touring in a camper or caravan? Just fold your bike away until you need it again!

NB: If you require a low-step electric bicycle, but are not looking for a foldable frame, please take a look at our range of step-through ebikes.

What’s the difference in power delivery? Cadence Vs Torque Power Packs

Torque Power Pack Advantages

  1. A more natural riding experience
  2. Immediate power when the pedals are pushed
  3. Quieter motor sound
  4. Up to 15% more range

Technical Specification


Wisper High efficiency, 250W hi torque brushless motor

Lithium Battery

Medium range 375Wh MAX range 50 miles (80km)
Long range 575Wh MAX range 75 miles (120km)
Mega range 700W MAX range 90 miles (140km)



Full Throttle Range

Using your Wisper bike on throttle only will reduce your range by up to 30% and the torque pack will not help increase range whilst you are using the throttle only. If your bike has been upgraded so it works on the throttle only, we still suggest pedaling when you are able to do so. Use the throttle only function when you need to rest or to help you pull away when setting off.

Full Throttle eBikes from Wisper

Why We Offer Wisper Full Throttle eBikes

  1. Full Throttle eBikes offer a quick, eco friendly and cost efficient option for city commuters at a time when everyone is looking to save on rising fuel and transport costs.
  2. Full Throttle eBikes offer commuters better control and enhanced safety when moving slowly in traffic.
  3. Full throttle eBikes offer immediate power when accelerating especially useful at traffic lights or on hills.
  4. Full Throttle eBikes allow a rider to “take a breather” and cool down from time to time during a journey, particularly useful when commuting in hot weather.
  5. Full Throttle eBikes make cycling even more inclusive, enabling those of us with for example impaired movement to enjoy the benefits and freedom eBikes bring.

Fully Legal in the UK

Continuing our journey of pro-active leadership, innovation and progression within the e-bike industry we are proud to be able to offer fully UK legal, full throttle eBikes that will power our bikes up to 15.5mph without pedalling.

As well as making our bikes safer and more easily controlled at low speeds, offering faster acceleration from stand still, Wisper full throttle electric bicycles make cycling even more inclusive than ordinary eBikes, enabling those that need a little extra help when discovering, or returning to the joys and freedom cycling offers.

How It Works

Once we receive your order for a Wisper full throttle bike we arrange to have your bike tested by the DVSA and Type Approved as an L1e in the category 250W LPM (250Watt Low Powered) Moped.  This can take between 2 and 8 weeks as the bike has to be taken to a specially approved MVSA centre for the Type Approval tests to be carried out.  The tests are to make sure our standard eBike is safe and complies to current EAPC (Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle) regulations.  Once these tests have been completed we are presented with a British National Type Approval, Minister’s Approval Certificate bearing your bike’s frame number, this ensures the certificate can only be used in conjunction with your specific Wisper bike. The certificate must be kept in a safe place just like an MOT certificate although we and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency will keep a record of your Bike’s Type Approval.

Unlike an MOT Certificate, the Type Approval Certificate lasts for the lifetime of the bike and does not need to be renewed.

Full throttle eBikes will continue to work in exactly the same way a standard eBike works when the throttle is not used. The rider only uses the throttle when needed, it will not effect any other standard EAPC function.


To obtain Type Approval bikes must be fitted with front and rear lights operated together on one switch. Because the Tailwind Trail, Tailwind City and Wayfarer Mountain do not have lights these bikes cannot yet be Type Approved.  We are working on a solution and hope to offer these bikes with a full throttle by mid 2023.

The Regulations

L1e electric bikes are a sub-group of Low Powered Moped that meets the criteria laid down in the Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle Regulations 1983 (SI 1983 No. 1168) as amended by SI 2015 No. 24. The requirements are that the vehicle:

  1. Be fitted with pedals by means of which it is capable of being propelled
  2. Be fitted with no motor other than an electric motor, which has a maximum continuous rated power, which does not exceed 250 watts and cannot propel the vehicle when it is travelling at more than 15.5 mph

In essence, our bikes, when Type Approved, can be ridden legally on roads and private land within the UK at speeds of up to 15.5mph using just the throttle.

Costs and Warranty

Anyone can take their Wisper bike to an approved MVSA centre and apply for Type Approval. The cost of the test and certification is £55.00 which is payable to the DVSA and needs to be paid at the time of booking the test appointment.  If you chose to have your bike Type Approved yourself, please contact us with the TA details and we will for a fee of £45.00 upgrade your bike’s software, this has to be done physically at our Kent HQ. If you would like your warranty to be extended to cover your bike with a full throttle we will make a further charge of £45.00.  This does not extend the time line of your warranty which will remain at 24 months from the time you originally purchased your Wisper bike.

We offer the full TA certification service for a fee of £200.00 on top of the price of a new Wisper bike or £250.00 on a used Wisper bike.  We only offer this service on Wisper bikes as we know they are fully legal EAPCs.

Our charges include the test fee, upgrading the software on the bike, one of our technicians driving the bike to the test centre, waiting whilst the test is done and bringing the bike back to our HQ in Kent. Importantly it also includes, a £45.00 charge to extend our two year warranty to include full throttle riding. We charge the extra £50 on used Wisper bikes to service the bike before we take it to the test centre.

If you are intending to take your Wisper bike out of the UK, it is your responsibility to check it may be used legally at your destination. We can for a £55.00 fee re-restrict your bike for you whilst you are out of the UK and de-restrict it for you when you get home, this work has to be done physically at our HQ in Kent.

All prices include VAT.

You can view our complete range of compatible ebikes in our Full Throttle Electric Bikes category.

6 reviews for Wisper 806 Folding Electric Bike

  1. linda gresty

    just got my new wisper806 folding bike its brilliant great build quality and a dream to ride I can now keep up with my grand daughters excellent service from cycle house ltd of warrington

  2. Brian Derby

    Bought Wisper 806 bikes for me and my wife. They look great. We have been whizzing around the countryside like teenagers! The boost the bike gives us makes such a massive difference. Did a swift ten miles yesterday and battery still showing full charge. We LOVE them. We will no doubt be out far more than we would on ordinary bikes because the bike gives you so much confidence in your ability to go further afield. Transformational.

    I first bought an ebike (fold up Osprey) from E Bikes Direct. It was superbly built but I didn’t get on with it as the motor did most of the work and I didn’t need to cycle much, even up hills. It was returned very quickly and I tried the Wisper with torque. I find it excellent, It is a step through, fold up bike, really well built and I get along with it well. It can be put into the boot of my car together with my husband’s. With this bike, the torque assists more than adequately and I have a smooth, ride. (You can tell by my lack of technical language that my bike knowledge is quite limited). I am ‘older’ and I really enjoy my exercise on this bike. It must be making me fitter! I do wish it had suspension but it would have been far more expensive. I visited the manufacturer to ‘have a look’ and was helped by a very knowledgeable guy. I am very pleased with my purchase and would encourage other older women to give an electric bike a try.

    Great bikes and great service..I’ve got 2 black and red wisper 806 step through. Good solid well made bikes.my friend has just got the same as us now and out every day when fine.
    Well done to all in wisper………thank you for our fun days out

  5. Mike Ashcroft

    Excellent bike. Fits into the back of my Citroen Berlingo which is a camper conversion. Rode up Hardknott Pass in the Lake District where I live (notorious for burning out clutches on cars and camper vans) Reached the top of the world and not even out of breath lol! Spent a weekend on the Fleetwood / Blackpool coast riding along the promanade for miles without even needing the power on. So easy to ride on the flat and turned on level 1 or 2 when there was a headwind. It’s a tad heavy, but use a good lifting technique It’s gets easier with practice. Battery charge lasts for ages. Very pleased. If you buy one you will be too.

  6. Linda

    My husband and I have had our 806 torque bikes for 3 and 4 years. We absolutely love them. We have taken them on holiday in the boot of our car all over the UK and they easily get us up the steepest of hills and even after a 40 mile ride with a few hills the battery is more than half full. We have the 700 wh battery.
    I recently developed a fault where I lost power in high power and full throttle modes. I rang wisper directly and spoke to Adrian in technical who quickly diagnosed the problem. He sent a part to Simon at Dialled in Bikes, Paignton as this is near where we are on holiday. Simon was great and fixed it very quickly. Very impressed.
    We did lots of research before buying our bikes and do not regret our decision. If you need a folding bike with lots of power to get up hills I definitely recommend the Wisper 806 with torque and a large battery.
