“Most of our customers are after electric bikes, though once in a while someone asks for a straight bicycle. Since before the Lunar New Year, we have sold 15-20 electric bikes per week, sometimes double that number,” an employee of H-M said.
On both sides of a short stretch of Vo Thi Sau Street there are nearly 50 electrical bike shops and they are often full of people checking out the latest models.
These shops claim they sell five to seven electric bikes a day, the most popular makes being E-Bike, Viha, E-GO, Bluewing, Robo, Plasma, Emoto and Hitasa.
