E-bikes and electric scooters are becoming increasingly popular in Mongolia as they are often seen as responsible, eco-minded do-gooders. However, the powered bikes carry a higher risk of severe injuries than traditional bicycles.
The Traffic Police Authority of Mongolia has been reported three road accidents related to electric bikes since January, 2022. Apparently, the accidents were caused by Surron, electronic dirt bike. Surron is “restricted use electric motorcycle” and not a pedal-assisted; however, reckless teens are using it just like a bicycle in city roads.
According to Mongolia law, 18 year-olds who has a class A driver’s licence are allowed to drive motorcycles and other electronic cycles with above 4 kWh.
Mongolians has began importing Surron in 2019. The ebike costs MNT 7-10 million.
