I'm not looking to start a business. I'm just looking for one so my 13 year old son can drive around the old bastard (me). I've already taught him how to drive the motor by himself and he's getting good driving our car.

If you want to make a small fortune here come and start with a large fortune.

surprised the local trike mafia have not blown them up

If you want to start a business, do something that the locals don't do and where the learning curve is too great for them to copy. Just as an example, I can sell every kilo of goat meat that I ca

I suspect OP was looking at a Racal trike.  Have seen them in Daan Bantayan and several other places up and down the west coast. I think thy are made in China and assembled Negros somewhere.  Spoke to one young guy who had one in Asturias..  and he was pretty happy with it.

They also make several gas powered trikes as well..

I suppose there ARE places on earth where that would be a funny joke.  

Not sure how it advances this thread though.`

I think the Racal owner I talked to needed to replace battery once annually, and he was using it as a taxi.

Max load: 400Kilos. Which means 245kilos above the vehicle weight of 155kilos.  Maybe 5 filipinos counting the driver.

Probably the same or close to the specs of the average trike, yet they will load up 12+ passengers + a few heavy bags of rice, and other things on one. I've seen them struggling to go 5kph at times with at least 15 passengers.

I doubt that is a good "investment" considering the prices of transportation unless its considerably more there in Cebu. Around here its 10 pesos to go a pretty long distance, I.E. the next town 8-10k away.

You might want to consider one of these. Got one for the wife over a year ago and it suits the purpose well for trips around town.

No drivers license required all she needed to get was a license/registration for a bicycle every year.

It is driven every day and so far all that was needed in the way of maintenance is a few nuts and bolts tightened. Had to replace the batteries last month but that was a result of over charging, it caused them to swell up and not hold a good charge. We have since purchased a good quality charger/maintainer that can be plugged in indefinitely and not hurt the batteries.

We have put a roof on it for p500. and added 2 led spotlights because the headlight wasn't good enough for night travel...

No idea if the new rules for E bikes are the same for these E trikes?? Probably though.


 

Due to the increasing popularity of electric bikes (e-bikes), the Land Transportation Office (LTO) is reminding the public that these vehicles still need to be registered.

LTO is alarmed by the number of unlicensed people riding e-bikes, especially with advertisements stating that such vehicles are exempted to registration. With this, LTO reiterates that electric bikes, just like motorcycles, are included in the Land Transportation Code.

Moreover, LTO enforcement service director Francis Almora said that no one is to ride e-bikes without possessing a driver's license. He explained that lack of knowledge in local driving laws poses serious threat on the road.

If you’re planning to use a motorized or electric tricycle for business or livelihood then you need to get a MTOP first and foremost. MTOP has a validity of three (3) years and local application fees vary for different cities and towns here in the Philippines.

Only makes sense if you install Solar panels to charge them from - otherwise your cost on electricity will go thru the roof

If you want to start a business, do something that the locals don't do and where the learning curve is too great for them to copy.

Just as an example, I can sell every kilo of goat meat that I can produce through a local butcher at a premium. Locals can't match the taste (tastes just like beef), the tenderness, or the weight. If they try to raise "hybrid goats", they try to raise them like local goats and they die. So this is just one example where the learning curve and the initial cost is just too much for them.

Was your post intended to get comments about this as a business opportunity?  I’ve seen these sort of tricycles in my area, both gas and electric. I have doubts about buying some for rentals as a business would work out.  At least not in the area I live. Lots to consider if it’s a business (LTO, insurance, BIR etc). 

No  - been there / done that

Just passing along experience to leaven my political posts

He's from Jersey (that's New Jersey - not the original :tongue_01:)

Doesn't rent as the business - rents to drivers who can't afford their own - sort of like a taxi leasing company.
