Full Throttle Range

Using your Wisper bike on throttle only will reduce your range by up to 30% and the TTP 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 pedalling 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.

Wisper Full Throttle eBikes

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 E;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.

Please note…

Use of a throttle can reduce the range of your ebike considerably, so to achieve maximum range from your bike it’s best to use the throttle only when needed.

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 Single Vehicle 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 Single Vehicle 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 Single Vehicle 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.

Wisper Full Throttle Ebikes Approved By DVSA

Exclusions

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.

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 from traffic lights or on hills.
  4. Full Throttle eBikes allow a rider to “take a breather” from time to time, 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.

Costs and Warranty

Anyone can take their Wisper bike to an approved MVSA centre and apply for Single Vehicle 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 Single Vehicle 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 Single Vehicle Approval certification service for a fee of £300.00 on top of the price of a new Wisper bike or £350.00 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 an 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.

2 reviews for Wisper 705 24″ Step-Through E-Bike

  1. Hayley

    I’ve had an electric bikes for twenty years and have enjoyed the technology getting better and better. This year I saved up for a new bike. Unfortunately this coincided with the pandemic and everyone selling out. I approached three companies for advice and two of the three just told me I needed to buy the most expensive bike. Wisper confirmed what I thought I needed (not the most expensive) and processed my order. With the pandemic it did mean a wait, but Wisper (Amps LTD) were lovely to speak to and accurate and honest about the timings. When someone made an error they were very apologetic and helpful. My bike arrived this week. I just needed to add the pedals, straighten the handle bars and charge the battery. I am the proud owner of a 24″ 705, electric blue bike. It looks great, takes off from junctions with the throttle so that you’re concentrating on where you are in the road rather than wobbling about trying to pull away. The battery is holding its power and recharging quickly, With the smaller frame I feel in control and the pedal assist irons out the hills so that I can continue to get fitter without getting leaving myself helpless away from home. I checked that I could do the maximum speed of 15.5 mph, no problems at all and easy 20 mph on the downhill (power does cut out at 15.5 as the law requires). Working with the gears and the power assist I can mix when I want to work hard and when I need more help. I have epilepsy and so sometimes (now) can’t rely on being able to drive. An electric bike means that (when there isn’t a pandemic) I can keep my independence and not rely on others to take me shopping, visit friends and just get out and about. As a direct comparison, my last bike was a cheap Chinese model. It was perfectly functional, but compared to the Wisper it was a heavier bike; did not have the smooth gears or the disk breaks which definitely make me feel in control. The smaller frame and shorter distance between the wheels makes the Wisper more manoeuvrable. I had my worst accident when standing still with my old bike because when holding a longer bike I couldn’t keep it upright without the momentum. This is a real reason to always wear your helmet. I took out my knee cap, broke a couple of ribs, but had no head injury because I had my helmet on! In conclusion, it was worth the wait and the extra money for a bike which is demonstrates all the improvements technology and a quality build can provide.

  2. Mrs H

    Had my Wisper 705 for two weeks, I love it! Comes in various sizes – I need a small frame and could choose smaller wheels so it fits me and is very comfortable to use. Easy to get the hang of using the boost and has a good size battery so going further will be no problem once the weather is a bit better. So far it is a great purchase. Bought at Rutland Cycles at Pitsford, very helpful and knowledgeable staff, will be using them for the servicing etc. If you have been considering a change from your pushbike to an e bike, do it, you won’t look back!
