Police seized the scrambler-style bike from its rider on Marlowe Close in Banbury.
The confiscation came as part of a neighbourhood policing crackdown on anti-social behaviour caused by electric bike riders.
A spokesperson for the police said: "Thankfully, the rider was slower than a tortoise in his get-away, so has also been identified and dealt with by officers.
"We are aware of ongoing concerns from residents about anti-social behaviour caused by riders of such bikes. We are working hard to identify those involved, and once we have the evidence required to identify the riders, further action will be taken.”
