    Friend of mine is looking for an ebike to take back to Europe.
    Any recommendation on a reliable, not to heavy, compact model?

    And even more, anybody know a cluster of shops in Beijing to check the market?

    Thanks

    I am totally agree with humanbeing that Japanese e-bike had really good quality and its price are also cheap, it has a less weight so we can carry with us, I love it Japanese e-bike very much.

    Yes absolutely, a Yamaha branded ebike would be about the best quality and have the best resale value in the west.

    The question is of course, will it be road legal in Europe?
    Better do your homework on that, before you end up with a cool E-bike that cannot legally leave your shed...

    An electric bike is for all intents and requirements, a frequent bike with a significant change. All power motorbikes have on panel a small engine unit that can power the tires completely on its own. These days, they are popular known as the E-bike.
