Just came across this review on Electrek - pretty cool budget/affordable option for a FS e-mountain bike.

The pace of development, dropping prices, and growing number of options is making it very hard to decide on my next pit/around-town bike. Can't seem to decide if I want to go tried/true scooter like a Zuma/Ruckus/Liberty/, a mini-bike like the Grom/Z125, or an e-bike like this or the Luna Cycle X1 (which is my top pick, currently)

Electrekís Take
Hereís the thing: The Paselec GS9 isnít some big-name e-bike. It doesnít come from a flashy company and it doesnít have big brand awareness. So I went into this review not expecting much.

And while I can tell it doesnít have the quality level of those fancier full-suspension electric mountain bikes, it still surprised me with how well it handled what I threw at it.

To me, this is a great full-suspension electric mountain bike for recreational riders. If youíre a downhill enthusiast or regularly take the most technical trails at your local bike park, the GS9 probably isnít the e-bike for you. Youíll want something more professional.

But if youíre just a weekend warrior that enjoys getting out in the dirt and mountains for some fun riding, the GS9 is more than happy to deliver that experience. It uses good but not great parts that help save on cost while still providing a more capable off-road ride than a typical hard tail mountain bike. Itís basically the definition of ďvalue,Ē giving you just enough of what you need and at a reasonable price.

Thatís exactly what Iím looking for in a proper budget-level, full-suspension electric mountain bike: something that gives me more capabilities without overly compromising on safety or quality.

yeah there's so many ebike options out there. The Light Bee makes a great pitbike btw =P Probably not as easy to transport as an ebike.

the X1 looks interesting,
a friend of mine really likes his Bafang BBSHD kit with a Luna battery, he does some pretty impressive dirt ride on it, 3000+ ft elevation gain in a 25 miles trip.

That Pasalec seems like a good deal, but I don't think the geared hub motor will last for off road riding.

I would look at the extended ride side of things on the street.
I'm enjoying my mini riding for the days adventure, there is the possibility to refuel.
Hooning about with like minded perps, could burn a tank or two.
I went monkey for the smaller size, to fit my load in the truck as backup transportation

Another solarpoweree bike can go 65 miles a charge. This looks great for making deliveries. Can load 100+ lbs of cargo. I can totally see these zipping around Tokyo. It's a little pricey tho for an ebike.
