costs of Fast ebike

Hello guys,
I am thinking to buy a fast ebike 45km/h (less than 1000w) and I have a few questions regarding the recurring costs.

I know that I have to get a yellow plate from my Kanton Traffic office. But this you only pay once, right? Is it like 50CHF or so?

Then it is covered from the liability insurance, correct? No special insurance needed?

And there is also the vignette, around 15-20chf per year?

Is there anything else? Are you forced to have an official service or a regular check of the ebike (similar to MFK?)

If it is important, I am in Aargau.

Thanks!

You can find information here: https://www.ag.ch/de/dvi/strassenver...ulassung_1.jsp


Once you register, you are covered by a collective insurance.


THen, every year you need to pay road tax, a vignette and the collective insurance.

Probably depends on the Canton. Here it is CHF 56.

Cost, well, about 2 years to build (including motor). 3kW and over 60 kmh is easy

Re: costs of Fast ebike

Does anyone have experience getting their home build registered? I can imagine all kinds of inspection nightmares that are putting me off doing a 45km/h conversion.
