Electric bikes and motor scooters in China

During a recent visit to China I was impressed to see so many silent motor scooters. Electric motor scooters. I even rode on one.

Now I know why, Time reports that 90% of the world's e-bike sales are in China.

Electric scooters look the same as gas scooters, except for no trail of smoke. They don't sound the same, they're silent. This would be hailed as a great green success if it were happening in London or New York.

One of my close friends is getting an electric bike. He has been wanting to get something more gas friendly for his relatively short commute. He definitely needs an affordable option. His truck is just a bad idea for such short, repetitive drives. Thiago | http://www.melbourneelectricbicycles.com.au/perth
