Looks like you're paying a lot just for the IM branding. A quick Google search showed comparable all terrain e-bikes at a less wallet-hitting price.

Kinda like that deal with their $80+ Taiwan inner tubes, I guess.

Heck, now that I think of it, that tube price was from about four years ago, If they've risen like everything else in the past year, they must be $200 each by now (only half joking about that).

Looking at that little Indian electric bike, and trying to see anything there that could justify a price of $4000, knowing how many hours I have to work in order to come up with that amount, after taxes, just mystifies me.

How is that bike worth so much, but my labor worth so little by comparison?

I'm only critical about the money demanded for what appears to be so little, otherwise I have no problems with electric assist bicycles, and in fact, wouldn't mind owning one as a fun toy to mess around on.

I have test-ridden one (at a bicycle shop, not at an Indian dealership), and was amazed at how well it worked, and will almost certainly eventually buy one......but NOT for $4000 from an Indian motorcycle boutique.
