These bad pedal specs make a lot of sense from a manufacturer perspective in many parts of the world. Around here (central europe), a large share of proper MTBs with big knobby tyres will never be ridden on what we call bike trails. They are bought for their looks or because most folks have no idea what kind of bike they need to ride on gravel paths. Shitty pedals are fine for those. Its even worse with electric mopeds, where weight and rolling resistance doesn't matter at all and lots of people buy the most aggressive looking motorcycle for riding along pavement to the shops. Just like they do with cars.
