My calcs give me over 2.3kW. Thats a whisker more over the 200 watt limit than I am getting. In fact about 10 times more!
I am trying to (mostly) stay within the spirit of the law, although I have to say that it is a bit frustrating. I mostly use the motor at 200 watts or less, which is sorta ok for assistance, but not much else. I'm looking at getting a higher amp controller, which should help a little bit.
I'm leaning towards using a 500 watt motor, which should give acceptable performance, without carrying around a bucket load of batteries.
That's the compromise I'm trying to find, the right blend of performance and acceptable weight. After all, the bike has to be usable without power.
I'm currently building a trike, and I certainly would not consider using anything less than 500 watts, unless its a Puma!
So, even tough I am a copper, and I should be working within the law, I'm not. Simply because most motors start at 250 watts, which is the first motor I bought.
The other issue is, that unless you have a honking big motor, and are scooting down the road at 60 kph+, most coppers wouldn't even know or care if you motor is over 200 watts max output. But if you get a keen one, watch out! The fines for unreg/unlic can be a killer!
