Electric bike with attitude!

I recently was out for a walk and passed a motorcycle shop selling a 'chopper' electric bike.

This machine has a throttle, a 200 Watt motor and a wide, motorcycle-width back tyre. The 'Electric Chopper' has a maximum speed of 25 kph. However, the shop owner told me that by simply disconnecting a few wires, I could boost the maximum speed up to 50 kpm!

The battery is the grey thing with the handle in the middle of the bike. I didn't ask the range, but I guess going at 50 kpm would chew it up pretty fast.

I much prefer my Gazelle, and I am a bit concerned at meeting one of these at 50 kpm on a bike path, but to each their own. 

I wonder if you wear leathers or lycra?
