Amazon US station bicycle 16 CFR 1512 test report, GCC certification requirements
Electric bicycles have surged in sales in the U.S. market, and they have almost become the first choice for American people to travel.
In a short period of time, the sales of electric bicycles have skyrocketed by 15 times. Survey data shows that the surge in sales of electric bicycles is inseparable from the soaring oil prices since March this year. Due to soaring oil prices, rising travel costs for American consumers, and the impact of inflation, the living pressures of American residents are also increasing. Therefore, in order to reduce the heavy burden of living expenses, more American consumers are starting to buy electric bicycles and scooters.
