The construction of the statute doesn’t mean that a Motorized bicycle can have one of those characteristics. Thus, if a ebike does not have an automatic transmission, it is not considered a motorized bicycle. If it does not have a “cylinder”, it is not legally considered a motorized bicycle. In other words, ebikes are legally not motorized bicycles in Kansas. They are just bicycles.
