Help Me Decide Which Bike To Buy

Raven Electric Mountain Bike Electric Bicycle | eBay

or

NEW Electric Mountain Bike Dual Suspension 250W 10AH Lithium 2yrs Wrnty Leitner | eBay

The price difference is around 1000$, but am I getting that much value for money?
I'd like to know what people think. Which one would you buy?

When it comes to electric bikes, the price difference *usually* means you're getting an inferior product (notice I said usually). Many of those cheaper bikes, especially the lower watt motor bikes, are made by generic companies and are usually of low quality. I had looked into getting a similar bike here in the United States and ended up passing - you get what you pay for. Spend the money on a quality bike rather than cheaping it out on something that will not last - purely my opinion.

This is a MUCH better bike in my opinion, it has a 48v battery and a 500w motor with fat tires.

Agree about price and quality, but that Raven seems more like an exercise in design than a utilitarian bike. Assume you're in AU (duh!) and suggest you tell us what your requirements consist of. Also, take a look at Dillengerau.
