The E-bike or electric-powered bike is getting to be popular here. In fact, this is a suburban town but there is a dealer of E-bike in the mini mall near our place. For 34k pesos, that's less than $800. And what's good with E-bikes is the clean energy. We are thinking of buying one for roaming around the village but we are still awaiting some review because the main issue with electric-powered appliances and vehicles is the battery. The promise of 30 kilometers distance for a full charge of the battery is still to be proven. And the durability of the battery is also in question although there is a warranty of 2 years. The E-bike is not required to be registered with the LTO (that's our dmv) because it is classified as bicycle. And wearing helmet is also not required.
