I think they are great for those that need them because they cannot ride as they used to / want to. For instance, I have a friend with health issues, who recently bought a NICE Trek Emonda SL, all Dura Ace, who gets frustrated because his body can't do what he used to or wants it to. He would be happier with the assist of the electric motor on faster rides and hillier rides. even windy rides will kick his ass. He then gets mad at his situation and himself, but it is not his fault he has those health issues.
maybe he will buy a e-bike and give me the Emonda! I can probably live with Shimano, until i get the money for Campagnolo!

Not for me though, i just need to keep getting my motor stronger!
