Here in Italy they can get very anal with law sometimes (a guy got a ~3000$ fine for a not-standard ebike ) it would be nice to implement a quick modification so you can limit the power with a switch.. Here law puts a 15mph limit and 250w max for the motor.. and you must have a PAS so the motor doesn't run if you don't pedal.
I think something like that could be done. The PAS part would be more difficult and you'd need some kind of sensor. You could place a resistor in series with the throttle to seriously reduce the maximum. The resistor could be switched in and out. The switch could be disguised, hidden or magnetic.
