Nigerian Man Unveils Electric Bikes, Price Raises Eyebrows (Video)

A smart Nigerian entrepreneur, Owelle, has taken a bold step towards sustainability by introducing electric bikes as an alternative means of transportation.

Owelle, known for his innovative solutions, shared photos and videos of the sleek electric bikes on Twitter, quickly garnering widespread attention and sparking a heated discussion on social media.

With fuel prices reaching record highs, many Nigerians are seeking more cost-effective and eco-friendly modes of transportation.

Owelle’s introduction of luxury electric bikes seemed to present an appealing option to those looking for a greener way to commute.

In his Twitter post, Owelle revealed that the price of these electric bikes is set at N1.3 million, but he emphasized that the price is negotiable, making it potentially accessible to a broader range of consumers.

He wrote;

“Last deal👍🏿 Electric bikes 1.3M each Goodnight 🌺🌺”

Many Twitter users criticized the high price, expressing concerns that it might be out of reach for the average Nigerian consumer.

Another concern raised by some users is the need for a reliable power source to charge the electric bikes.
