So in the distant past, you installed "a few" on bicycles
, a different topic entirely. Sticking with THIS topic - how many have you installed on eBikes? Specifically, ebikes with enough power and weight to need moto tires? Ebikes with accelleration and speeds that shred bicycle tires?

Ah. So from a very small sample of tires of vauge and undetermined quality or appropriateness, you became prejudiced against all moto tires, and walled yourself off to any additional data points.

That is an excellent description of the typical high-powered eBike that would use DOT tires.

That is what the suspension is for... I don't see many hardtails frames on builds powerful enough to require DOT tires.

Since I am running DOT tires on an ebike (pic below), I already know how they feel to me - f'ing awesome. In fact, a lot of folks running high-power setups seem to know that too, since many have chosen DOT tires they find appropriate.
