Is the Allocated Price for Yatri Electric Bike Justified as per the Nepalese Market?

We all know that the prices of Yatri electric bikes are creating controversies in the Nepalese market. Especially, the price of Project 0 is more debatable in the Market. In fact, Yatri has fixed the price for Project 0 to NPR 1945000/- and Project 1 to NPR 4,95,000/- .

Moreover, the price of the Project 0 bike is more than we expected. But the allocated price is justifiable as per the super-premium components used in the P0 bike and also its performance.

In addition, Project 1 is cheaper but the performance, range, and power of Project 0 are more powerful than Project 1.

Furthermore, as per Yatri, Project 1 is a commercial bike and Project 0 is a limited production. So, the price and performance of P0 are higher than P1. As a matter of fact, they are also working on the project for the production of cheaper models in the near future. 

Social Media Debate on “Is Yatri Electric Bike Too Expensive?”

Now let’s look at some fun trolls and comments on social media on the unexpectedly high price of Yatri – first electric bike made in Nepal.

While Nepalese were looking and expecting the cheaper price of the first electric bike made in Nepal. People were expecting the price to be comparatively lower than an international electric bike because of lower tax and domestic Manufacturer Company.

But the price revealed by Yatri was beyond the expectation of people. Considering the performance and specifications of the Yatri, the electric bike price is justifiable. As well as components, materials used on the Yatri bikes are of top quality, this has made the price of Yatri bikes high.
