Essential Facts about Electric Bike Prices & Best Value Electric Bike Comparisons

Recommended Posts

The author found some out-of-date information on the web and becomes upset about what the writer says. "Life changes aside, let's do a quick hypothetical costing example, if you took all of the car maintenance stuff away for a moment and just looked at a $3k brand new car vs. a $3k brand new ebike and left gas at $2 per gallon… an average electric bike gets ~20 miles per charge and cost less than $0.15 to fill (even using Hawaii's scale-tipping $0.37 per kilowatt-hour rates). So let's say that your car gets 30 miles per gallon and a gallon is $2 and your bike gets 20 miles per charge and a charge is $0.15, the bike is way cheaper right? But that's not the whole story. A premium electric bike battery costs anywhere from $500 to $800 to replace and lasts 1,000+ charges so let's treat this like a fuel cost and divide $500/1,000 charges… we get $0.50. So we add the $0.15 charge cost to the $0.50 battery use cost and get $0.65"

Firstly, the ebike like DYU including its battery are sold at only $500, it's nonsense saying that "electric bike battery costs anywhere from $500 to $800".

Second,  the electric bicycle cannot be $3k.

Third, the convenience of ebike in a crowded city is beyond comparison from a car, especially when you get jammed in the high traffic hours in a short distance trip.

Last, the ebike with pedals like  D3 will help you do some exercises when riding rather than sitting in the car, which make you more healthy.

Ancheer power plus electric mountain bike a strong candidate. It has a speed of 15 miles and above, and it's sport style. Better than the buffalo freeway that was sent to Seth , and it costs 1/3. This one proves that e-bike under $1000 that doesn’t suck. This ebike is produced by a Chinese factory named MASKED and rebranded by Ancheer. In fact, many famous companies are rebranding and reselling Chinese ebike factories products for huge profits. For the relationship between the resellers and factory, the author will not mention more about it.

"It's weird sometimes when the resellers refuse to talk with the factory but accept a much higher price from other resellers & agents. Even though the products are totally the same or even better, they ignore the better offer." Says Mr. Jim, a factory product manager in Shenzhen China. But he will never know, how hard it is to talk with the factory directly. Some factory even cannot understand English, leave alone marketing overseas.  It's a disaster talking about the product parameters and having after sales service.

Above is a little episode, let's get down to the point of the topic again. Cyclamatic Power Plus CX1 Electric Mountain Bike at $699.99

If you observe it a little more carefully, you'll find it's almost the same as the Ancheer power plus electric mountain bike, because they are from the same factory. Needless to say, it's kind of expensive, or maybe it has better motors or batteries. Only the user can tell this.

As to the Goplus 20″ Folding Electric Bike - $489.99

This is a really cheap but weak bike, it's not a durable & practical bike at all though it has a folding design. I'm afraid someone over 100kg would sit it into a flat steel pie. Mr. Rip-off said on Amazon, "Waste of money. Motor not working after 1 week.No proper return."  I'm not trying to slender but this piece of junk is not eligible showing on Amazon.

X-Treme Trail Climber Elite - $1,059.00. At first, I was wondering if this scooter is worth 1000 Dollars, and after a deep evaluation, the conclusion is, it does not deserve $1000, it worth at most $300. Let's see how disappointed its only customer isSo i got the bike, looks AMAZING! Most everything is set up, except for the basics-Front tire, Handle bars, seat, and peddles. Handle bars, you just pop into the holder, couple allen key screws to undo/redo. Easy! Peddles...same thing for any bike. Seat, literally just unlock, drop in, lock. Front tires can be tricky...and this is where my issue is... The frame/forks for the front tire...DON'T LINE UP! They are uneven, so when I try putting the tire on, I can get the gear thing into the brake/electric motor slot that it needs to go into, but, i cannot get the tire into the left fork, only the right. The bike is upside down currently, so, sides are likely opposite. I can't figure anyway to actually get it together, and i can't find anything online, so I imagine, it's NOT suppose to be like that. Only had to jump through hoops to be able to get the bike, and, I get a deformed one...

Nakto City Electric Bike - $648.99 .

This ebike is not bad, it has a classic design, nostalgia front bamboo basket and great battery holding frame but with an ordinary performance as 18-25 MPH, which is suitable for cargo shipping and pizza express use much. The bike body is made of carbon steel which makes it as heavy as 40-57Lbs, not portable and hard to carry.

The only thing to worry about is, its battery is too big and obvious which attracts the attention of the police officer easily and get into trouble. In many countries like UK ,  Australia, Victoria,  Ebike over 25km/h and 250w motor power is prohibited.

Merax Aluminum Electric Mountain Bike-  $689.99.

In a word, this super strong scooter will send the rider to the police station fast. I've seen thousands and millions of this kind of strong ebikes in China with a much lower price.  Some ebike even reaches up to the speed as 100km/h when carrying two 120kg guys.  But what happened to them now? They are dying out under the new national ebike standard rule. High speed and power ebike is not suitable for safe family use at all especially for a family with kids.  Meanwhile, sports style design is also famous for its uncomfortable riding experience. If I were you, I would not choose this ebike not matter how cheap or expensive it is.

DYU Electric Bike - $517.99

Finally, it comes to the DYU electric bike series. To be objective and neutral, I have to complain it's too hard to find out its dark side or defects. 

1. Its appearance is fashionable with a drip drop dolphin shape design. Good for the young man hanging out and showing off.

2. It's safe. It has smooth brake design and limited speed for new users in case an accident.

3. It has a folding design. Folding design means it will save you lots of space when carrying and storing.

4. It's the lightest ebike in the world. Only 14kg, even a girl can lift it up by a single hand easily.

5. It's comfortable to sit and ride. Unlike the sports style ebikes, this ebike has a low frame and smaller damping wheel, sitting on the soft & broad seat of the DYU rather than thin & hard typical sports seat, becomes a great joy.

6. It goes with most ebike laws in the world. You never need to worry about caught and fined by the police by riding this legal design ebike.

7. It's inexpensive. Retailing price at around 500 dollars and factory price is of 70% of the retailing price. It's affordable and price is really really reasonable. Not like other rebranded high price low-quality ebikes.

Many experienced distributors and importers have experience difficulty in communicating with the factories. But nowadays, factories are improving their communicating skills and serviceability. Once they move the first step with the factory, they'll find great potential in making the business even much more profitable.

Ebikes price and quality vary much even though they look the same on apperance,for example, lithium battery price is much higher and quality is much better than ebikes with lead acid battery, even though they both use lithium battery of both lead acid battery, its brand also makes price differ much, such as LG battery price is much higher than normal brand battery,of course it's quality also better. then it's about the material of ebikes, aluminum alloy material better and higher than metal material.
