What we like

  • long range tour city
  • high support mountain
  • pushing aid
  • a key for battery and frame lock

Premium – sounds particularly. And that is the Kalkhoff Impulse I8r also.Approximately as endurance-rounder. Almost 90 kilometers on tour, over 57 km in the city traffic and more than 40 km on the mountain – with these values fades the competition.

The engine certainly conveys strength and well tailored. And the nature of the pulses like its balanced nature. Thus, the driving wheel also quite pleasant with no engine.

To feel-unit, the tour will also thanks to good spring elements, relaxed seating position, ergonomic handles and comfortable saddle . Even otherwise, the pulses Premium are well equipped.
