    I assume you are referring to the charging current when you quote 2amps , the average discharging current when driving the motor will be 8 to 10 amps. If it were restricted to 2 amp the maximum power would be a paltry 72watts.

    A pic of the bike showing the motor and the control panel on the handlebars would give everyone a better idea.

    It looks like a nice bike. I son't think there's much you can do to speed it up as your motor is only 195 rpm, assuming 26" wheels.

    St2 – alter the speed limit by pressing the up and down buttons. Press the mode button M to confirm your choice. ᘐ NOTE: the speed limit for electric bikes in the UK is 15.5 mph (25 km/h)

    Hi, have you tried this in the correct manner? Does it adjust the speed higher than 15.5 mph? If it does, did you then save it by pressing the M button for 2 seconds?

    I've asked them this, on their facebook page.

    "I would like to increase the speed of my Westhill Ghost ebike, for off-road use. Can this be done and, if so, how?
    Many thanks
    Leigh"

    Let's see what they say.. :)
