Hunka Hunka Burning Love Posted August 26, 2016 Share Posted August 26, 2016 With some of the newer wheels coming out, we're seeing some pretty astronomical prices. Considering I bought my generic no name wheel for $220 USD which came with a shell, electric motor, control board, battery, and charger I'm just curious what the upper ceiling is for pricing that people are willing to spend. Say if a new wheel came out that could go 60 KPH for 100 km per charge regardless of rider weight, was lightweight, and had all the bells and whistles like audiophile quality Mark Levinson integrated 5.1 channel surround sound speakers, ABS, a competition class glossy automotive quality metal fleck paint job, heated leg warmers, GPS guidance, pedals the size of football fields, etc would you spend $4000 or more for it? How about $5000? What features would you expect from a $5000 EUC? Maybe free lifetime battery and tire replacement? Personally I would think that maybe the upper ceiling is around the $3000 mark. Me, personally, I don't think I would spend more than $2000 for a wheel, but that's just me. Once you get into the upper pricing I'm thinking more used car four wheels. I know that Solowheels are priced right up there, but people still buy them. I guess I just get a little bit of sticker shock when I see prices like $2500 for a new wheel. Then again, remember Apple II plus computers and IBM PS/1s? I think they were priced over two grand back in the day. Apples and IBM's or Oranges though right? What pricing will the market bear?
