Electric Bike Sales Picking Up in Brisbane

Brisbane, Australia — The sales for electric-powered bicycles and scooters in Brisbane have been slow, but Nope electric scooter and bicycle importer Harry Samson of Brisbane expects those sales to start growing by leaps and bounds.

“In 1997 they sold 98,000 electric bikes and scooters in China. Last year it was 25┬ámillion and they’re sending bike shops broke,” he said.

In Australia, those individuals who want electric-powered bikes do not want for choice, but there are only a few scooters and, as yet, no motorcycles.

Bike conversion kits are also available, such as the eLation system from Queensland.

The only electric scooters on the market are three Nope scooters. EVT offers two scooters, which are limited to 50km/h. There is also the Vectrix maxi-scooter.
