Some interesting thoughts on EMTB's on here, i've been riding mtb's for nearly 30 years most of which has been where they where designed for and you definately get what you pay for, if you want a good mtb especially an electric one you have to pay for it , i don't think many people would buy an enduro bike for £5000 new because they would think its rubbish, but that £5000 gets you a really good eMTB.
As for no market for used eMTB's have a look at Specialiazed Levo's on Ebay most sell for not far off new price, but any thing is a waste of money if you dont use it, happy trails.

Another option is to covert a "normal" mtb with a mid drive kit. I did this on a full suspension Voodoo with a Bafang 250w Mid drive for just over £1k about 20 months ago ( prices have krept up sonce though)...it has been the best grand I've spent in ages. There is a post on this thread with a picture somewhere. Mine is used on roads, bridleways, gravel tracks etc and works for me.

Found it
