For this conversion we have chosen the Dahon Vitesse D8. It benefits from a frame that is suitable for both Ladies and Gents to ride.
- We build with two types of motor at the same price, so we have also sourced some quiet running intelligent brushless hub motors, or for those who want even more power, a central motor that obviously drives through the 8 speed gears giving huge capability on hills. With the front hub motor when pedalling and the motor switched off on relatively level ground you would not realize that you are riding an electric bike, since the front wheel hub motor spins so freely, and likewise with the central motor the bike can be ridden normally. ( Central Motor type shown in the pictures )
- The price of this model includes lights, mudguards, stand, and rear carrier
- The intelligent charger is also included.
- Various Battery sizes
This combination of motor and folding bike has impressed us well beyond our expectation, delivering a performance that outstrips virtually all legal crank motor large wheel e-bikes.
The price of this 8 speed model is £1299.99 including delivery) This also includes lights, mudguards, stand, and rear carrier.
REAR ALTURA BAG is optional and not included.
WE ALSO DO OPTIONS OF SMALL FRONT MOUNTED 4aH BATTERIES WITH A CLICK ON/OFF BAG WITH INSTANT ELECTRICAL CONNECTION or CARRY A SPARE 4AH TO GIVE YOU 8 AH. THESE VARIATIONS ALTER THE PRICE OF THE BIKE, THE PRICE GIVEN IS FOR THE BAG and 10AH BATTERY.
