High initial cost of e-bikes and scooter

High cost of e-bikes and scooters is a major factor that restrains the growth of the electric scooter and motorcycle market. The cost of the battery and technology makes electric motorcycles costlier as compared to traditional bikes, conventional scooters, or motorcycles. Hence, consumers find conventional scooters or motorcycles superior in performance with same or less price. Moreover, the use of lithium–ion batteries or drive mechanism of motor incurs maximum cost, thereby restraining the growth of the market. Hence, upsurge in adoption of e-bikes in countries other than China is limited by high costs. However, the e-bike market is growing at a rapid rate globally, which may reduce the impact of this restraint in the near future.
